When our websites start to look a little out-of-date, are missing the 'next-big-thing' or we're hearing more concerns than congratulations, we're often tempted to blow the whole thing up and start over. But that takes up a lot of time and typically costs a lot of money.
On September 11th we'll look at some techniques and ideas to help us assess where our sites are at and how we can make improvements in the most cost-effective manner. The four areas we'll cover are:
- One website to rule them all - stop that mobile app plan and learn how responsive design brings your site to any phone, tablet or desktop.
- Testing with users - tools to help you find the small usability changes that might make a big difference.
- Priorities over personalities - a simple matrix you can use to make sure that your project priorities are in line with your users' needs.
- Winning robot love - using data standards to make your content easier to share and find for robots and humans alike.
Who should attend?
- Nonprofits, charities and social enterprises that are considering a new or redesigned website, or would like to improve their existing site. A basic understanding of how websites work is helpful.
- Web developers, designers and consultants who work with nonprofits and want to share their process expertise.
This event will be livestreamed, so you can attend no matter where you are! Joining is easy as there is no need to RSVP; just go to http://www.livestream.com/techsoupcanada around 5:30pm Eastern Time.
