June 17 meeting: Overview and experiences with content management systems

From: Judy H.
Sent on: Thursday, June 11, 2009 9:05 AM
I'd like to invite the members of this Meetup group to join us for a 
NCTech4Good meeting June 17:

Sean Watson, netCorps, Technology Consultant, will provide a general
overview of several of the popular content management systems and will
lead a discussion of the pros/cons of each. Participants will:

1. Gain an understanding of when a CMS is better than a custom
built/custom programmed static website and when it's not.

2. Gain an understanding of why a proprietary hosted CMS solution is not
usually a good idea.

3. Gain an understanding of the issues regarding hosting user-owned CMSs
such as Plone and Drupal.

4. Gain an understanding of what is involved in choosing an effective
system for their specific needs.

5. Participate in activities to help you begin identifying specific
needs/requirements.

Pizza (sponsored by NTEN & RTPNet) and socializing starting at 6:30,
program at 7:00. Donations are welcome but not required.

United Way of the Greater Triangle is now located at 2400 Perimeter Park
Drive.

We look forward to seeing you there! Please RSVP at

[As of June 10, we're changing the name of our group from Triangle Net
Tuesday/501 Tech Club to NCTech4Good. We'll change the Meetup URL after
the June 17 meeting.]
