The BBC Weather website has been relaunched after a public beta. The new site is on a three-tier architecture and this move was part of the BBC’s wider strategy to move to a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to increase cross-product interoperability and data reuse.

We found this interesting piece of news on the BBC Internet Blog in their post titled, “BBC Weather: changes to technical architecture.” This new launch encompassed many changes, but one key aspect of the new site development was a focus on code quality. They intentionally had a Developer In Test embedded in the team for the first few months of the project, which led to a successful project.

Technical professionals will be more interested in the other details of the new launch. Be sure to check it out.
