Ouders van Nu (translated ‘Nowadays parents’) is a huge ‘parenting’ website, which has an enormous user database (more than 800.000 users).
The website changed ownership and the new owner Sanoma, wanted to overhaul the entire template structure completely. The main focus was to rewrite everything from ‘plain php’ into Twig and to incorporate all of Sanoma’s own functions, like ‘weaving’ it into their network.
I was lead-developer on this project, analysing the ‘old template’ and rewrite the new one, to separate logic from design and make it much more efficient in terms of template re-usage and loading speed.
