: Developing websites is easier than ever... if you know what tools to use. Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla are three of the most popular tools these days for basic website development, each with their own advantage in ease of use or flexibility to accommodate features. Most importantly, because they are all open source they are less expensive to build and maintain over the long term.
This will a basic to intermediate level presentation, and we'll talk about how these tools can be useful both for new organizations that don't have a website yet, as well as how they might be helpful for making microsites or independent blogs for specific purposes, like fundraisign campaigns or particular topical issues. Of course, this is high-level stuff, and we're not going to get too far into the technical aspects of the development, just enough to make some decisions about what platform might be best for your use, and what sort of benefits or problems might come up with each one.
Tonight's speakers will include experts on all three platforms; Kara Masi, Roy Weissman, and Rafael Diaz-Tushman will each share their own experiences with one or more of these platforms from a development or project management perspective.RSVP
