Webteam development summary

Iteration 6

dating between 14th to the 25th of August

This iteration saw a lot of work on tutorials.ubuntu.com and on the migration of design.ubuntu.com from WordPress to a fresh new Jekyll site project. Continued research and planning into the new snapcraft.io site, with some beginnings of the development framework.

Vanilla Framework put a lot of emphasis into polishing the existing components and porting the old theme concept patterns into the code base.
