SA Node’s new website launched

South African Node of the millennium project's new website launched

We are pleased to announce that the new SA Node's website is finally up and running. All the hard work and dedication of our web development team has finally paid off to present you with the website, which you can view here. It features a cleaner and simpler look and feel and we hope it represents the information you look for in an easier to use way. There is still additional functionality that we would like to add over the next 6 months, such as an expanded members’ area and an online shop that boasts a lot more material, as well as greater back-end integration. We will keep you posted, but in the meantime, please have a look and send us your comments.
