Fagan was a full-time employee of Oprah.com, Oprah Winfrey’s official website. She was promoted to manager of web development and worked for Ms. Winfrey for a total of five years.
Fagan worked at Oprah.com during a time of incredible growth. The site grew from a small Web 1.0 static site to a 35,000-page, multifunctional adjunct to The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The show producers drove the content of Oprah.com and wanted the freedom to use unique layouts when they wished. For this reason, Oprah.com was not templated and had to be hand-coded.
Fagan was part of a four-person team that architected the site and wrote front-end code on a daily basis in an extremely fast-paced environment with highly exacting standards.
