Centrale Marseille

May 2012

The "École centrale de Marseille" is a leading graduate school of engineering (or Grande école of engineering) located in Marseille, France. Their IT team had a good experience with Drupal and when the school chose to create a new website with Drupal they chose us to develop it.

The project

The new website was in fact a couple of websites for each department and one main website for the school. We made some workshop with the company in charge of the design during its realization thus insuring that it would be easy to implement it with Drupal templating system.

I was responsible of the project management, I wrote the specifications, organized the meeting, created and updated the planning.

I was leading a small team of up to 3 developers and one graphic designer. Every morning I was animating the daily scrum to follow each developer achievement and to help them overcome their difficulties.

The design

I really like the design of this website, it's very clean and sober and the colorful pictures make a good contrast.

The result

I am quite happy the result and the client was really satisfied of our collaboration. You can read his recommendation here and on my LinkedIn profile and feel free to visit new Centrale Marseille website.

I have had the pleasure to work with Charles on the creation of the new website of the French “Grande Ecole” Centrale Marseille. As the Communication Manager of the school, I could rely on his support all along this challenge to improve the school's renown.

Charles is a very accessible and refreshing project manager and was always responsive to the specific constraints of the project. He was able to work upstream with the team in charge of the creation of the graphical design of the website to obtain the best results possible during its future integration to the Drupal CMS. Charles also applied very successfully agile methods to the project and always took note of our remarks during his demonstrations. His technical skill allowed him to interact with our technical team and to provide them with the technical training necessary to maintain the website.

Charles also solved several complex technical problems and showed great creativity while doing so. In addition, I was able to rely on him to provide the necessary graphical quality that is so often lacking when creating complex web projects. I would gladly work with Charles again.
