New Yahoo! Developer Network design rolling out

Our first batch of the newly designed site rolled out today! It looks great and is the collaborative work of an incredibly talented team. Lucas Pettinati who is the UX lead for the project, Stephan Douris who created a beautiful visual language for the site, Jono Kane who prototyped the hell out of things and then worked magic on the CSS with Mich Cook, an amazing front end developer. Our PMs, Lara Daniels and Rashmi Menon who kept busy wrangling a bunch of new features that will be rolling out over the next couple of months and our Pjm Christina Brockelsby who cracks the whip on us all to keep things moving.
The YDN team – management and individual contributors alike – are passionate and talented and I feel lucky to be working with them. This is a major milestone for us and every couple of weeks more parts of the site will be launched with the new look and feel and new features including, real forums (instead of yahoo! groups), a more robust search experience, an api explorer, a more formal client relationship management system and best of all a dashboard for developers that will eventually have stats and other interesting data related to the apis they will be using. All very cool stuff.
So again, congrats to the team and check it out.
