Meetup Description: For our April meetup, I will present an overview of the ExpressionEngine Content Management System (CMS). A CMS provides a framework for building web sites beyond static HTML files, offering features like:

Date-sensitive content display (i.e., event calendars)
Generate and display RSS Feeds
Integrated image galleries
User membership and forums
Content staging
Blogging
User commenting

...and dozens more. We'll see how entry sets, fields, categories and templates fit together to create dynamic, easy-to-update web sites.

Expression Engine is an open-architecture Content Management System, powering sites like:

The Obama-Biden Transition Team (change.gov, since replaced by whitehouse.gov)
TED Conferences
WSUM 91.7 FM Madison Student Radio

Working with ExpressionEngine does not require heavy-duty web programming skills, so this demo should appeal to both designers and developers.

April's meetup space is provided by Knupp and Watson, a strategic communications agency.

Please note: I am still seeking a permanent, central location for meetups.
