Late in 2019, NOIRLab and Enciso Systems began the construction of a new website based on Djangoplicity. In addition, they migrated more than three decades of astronomy-related content. Nine months later, the brand-new website went public for the first time. Edison Arango (Altix) led the construction team, while Paula Velásquez and Ingry Romero supported the migration and parallel operation of the websites. Whatsmore, interns from University of the Llanos assisted both teams.

We will continue working with local companies and academia to provide content administration and web development services offshore.” says Javier Enciso, Enciso Systems CEO.
