Brett...sent a note of congrats into your web developers email on the page and got this response:
Hi gang…nice mobile site and apps.
Can you perhaps comment on the web developers ning site about:
Number of personnel on the project
Length of the project
Vendor or internal
We are actively seeking to do same here and looking at the options for a small shop like ours. Thanks
Hi Scott, thanks for the note. We had a tech lead, a PM, a tester (brought in towards the end), and another app developer on the project part time. Keep in mind we leveraged the data feeds we provided our vendor, Blackboard in developing the mobile site in house. We wanted to take this on in-house as mobile is becoming part of our overall web app design philosophy and leveraging a consistent and centrally hosted front end framework was attractive to a decentralized campus such as ours.
We are using the UCLA Mobile Web Framework http://mwf.ucla.edu/
It took about 4 months to deploy using the framework. Let me know if you have any additional questions.
