2017 Webby Awards

Working for one of the country's largest retailers has provided me many opportunities.

As a rule, I don’t speak much about my day job. Not for any reason other than respecting the work I do there belonging to the company. Today I am breaking this rule to document something I’m quite proud of.

I am a development manager for Macys.com’s marketing department. My team does phenomenal work day in and day out. I’m proud to say that they are the most talented group of developers I’ve worked with.

Every year, we build the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade website, which is typically informational. The past few years have been a bit more ambitious, and this past year’s was the most ambitious yet.

Note: the development team is one of many teams that work on the web campaign, and each member of each team deserves praise.

I could go on about the process and technology used to build the site, but it’s probably better to experience it for yourself.

This past week the Webby Award winners were announced, and I’m pleased to say that the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade site has won a Webby and 2 “People’s Voice” Awards. (Desktop Mobile)

Congratulations are in order for everyone involved. I’m proud to be part of the team that developed it.

I would be remiss to leave out the fact this is not my first encounter with the Webby Awards. I cannot remember if Dog and Pony Show was officially nominated, but we certainly pushed for it.
