Krishan Taylor – Webmaster

The biggest responsibilities of Web Master are to make sure the site has the correct information prior to Carnival (events, dates, etc.), maintaining an updated leaderboard during Raceday, provide a working link to the livestream, and updating the site with the correct final results once races end.
The more interesting work is in updating the website to fit today’s expectations. Over the last two years, I gave the site a facelift and made most of it responsive, added a live updating leaderboard (that isn’t an embedded Google Sheet), made the site more secure by adding an HTTPS certificate, and fixed a few bugs along the way. There’s still a lot more to do over the next couple of years that I wasn’t able to finish, like making the gallery more mobile friendly, providing a better way to add video, and making it easier to update the History section of the site. It’s been a lot of fun, and I hope I get to keep working on this for you.
