The goal of my project was to develop a Content Management System for the CitrusTV website. This project was first brought to my attention in the Fall of 2009 by fellow Syracuse University student Alyssa Elias.

As a Newhouse Broadcast Journalism major, Alyssa recognized a need to develop a site that better mirrored the CBS news video website after having interned there the summer entering Junior year.

I was brought into the project because of my Information Technology minor, which allowed me to be familiar with the technical background necessary for the project. Additionally, my role involved maintaining communication between both Alyssa and the CitrusTV station in order to make sure what I was building was what they expected.

Although the technical aspect of this project was not overly challenging, the issue of balancing the needs and restrictions of the CitrusTV station staff and Alyssa was both difficult and rewarding in the end. In general, both parties were easy to work with, but ensuring that all requirements were met was quite a major obstacle.

Overall, the final Content Management System was completed, and although there were some difficulties along the way, it was both rewarding and enriching to complete the project.
