3voor12.vpro.nl is a renowned and international music website with more than 2,5 mln unique visitors yearly. On the site the user can queue and play audio and video in a sidebar and still navigate the rest of the site without interruption of playback. The site is responsive and works on both mobile and desktop. A large editorial team keeps the site up-to-date with the latest news and newest albums.
In this talk a walkthrough of this fully responsive website will be given. The use and benefits of magnolia will be highlighted from different perspectives. How it is used by a designer, a frontender, a backender, an author and last but not least the visitor. Many standard features of magnolia have been utilized and also new components were developed, like parameterized image variations and a Solr search engine extension. The latter will be touched briefly upon but will be presented in detail in a separate technical presentation by Ernst Bunders and David Pronk.
The process of building this large scale site with interplay between all above disciplines will be discussed as well: it wouldn't have been possible without scrum.
