Web design

Jaime E. Villate. University of Porto, Portugal

In 1994, when I heard about the World Wide Web at CERN, I started creating my own Web pages. In the beginning of 1997 created a Website for the Department of Chemical Engineering where I worked. The early versions of that site can still be accessed through the Historical Web Archive.

I wrote some CGI scripts for that site which allowed the teachers to create and update their web pages, using a system similar to what is nowadays know as a Wiki. In 2001 I transferred from the Chemical Engineering Department to the newly created Physics Engineering Department. Between 2001 and 2010 I improved that wiki system to maintain a Website for that new department.
