7:30 - The Business of Web Development, (an open Q&A roundtable discussion)


Crazy (and Mostly Free) Places to Host Your Website

by Scott Davis

You're a web professional; you know how much effort it takes to host a live, public-facing website. But what about those times when you want to hack something together in a hurry -- like showing a client some preliminary wireframes, or putting up a simple "brochureware" website? Even hosting a simple static blog is easier than you think.

In this talk, we'll explore some unconventional places to host your simple, static websites -- places like Dropbox, GitHub, and Amazon's S3 service. If you're in the market for "quick and dirty", these services are both fast and grungy. And free... mostly.


The Business of Web Development

Join us this evening for a panel discussion with Denver-area web development companies. Rather than formal presentations, this is an open Question and Answer session where YOU drive the discussion.

How do you gather requirements from schizophrenic clients? Do you steer potential clients towards / away from particular technologies? What tools and techniques do you use to deliver your software on time and under budget?

This is your chance to ask successful local businesses to reveal their secrets to success.

    Scott opened everyone eyes to the free and simple Drop Box web hosting opportunities. It was interesting the learn about the business of recruiting and training from the web development panel.
