Dutch Ministry of Finance website goes live

13 04 2006

If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been doing in Amsterdam lately, here’s the scoop. I’ve been working with the Hippo and the Clockwork guys, together with Andrew and other colleagues, to design and implement the new website for the Dutch Ministry of Finance.

This is the first major website to be based on the new, open source version of Hippo CMS and it’s not going to be the last one, as the website for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is next in line, and then maybe other government sites will follow.

The website strives to be valid XHTML, even though validity checking is not yet complete, and accessible to everyone. Of course, you should be able to read Dutch… ah wait, there’s an English version available.

Congratulations to everyone involved and looking forward to many other big achievements like this one!
