Hello everyone,

Hope all is well and you had a nice break during the summer.  Now that everyone is back to work or school and switching the gear, let's start our monthly meetings.

First of all, I am thrilled to let you know that we now have a new venue for our monthly meetings. bitHeads Inc., Ottawa's app design & development company, kindly offered its office space for our meeting. I feel so grateful to the company.

Our meeting will be held next Wednesday, September 25th at 6:30pm, at bitHead Head Office - on 1309 Carling Ave.

Our co-organizer, Abdul Haseeb will be the speaker of the month.  Abdul has been working on building online business for the past five years. He has been involved with getting tractions and web products, converting visitors into members and growing online platform. He has grown revenues of his stores in multiple folds focused on niches.

This meeting will focus on E-commerce design. The importance of User Interface (UI) and what the key factors that converts visitors into buyers are. This presentation will cover the followings:

  • Basic overview of e-commerce mistakes

    I quite enjoyed the meeting yesterday. Although I'd have to agree with Tony Gibbs that the accent of the presenter was a little difficult to comprehend. At present, I'm volunteering at CompuCorps, a charity computer retailer as a Database Administrator. I am also available for interviews to demonstrate my experience in Web Design and Development and would be happy to present my resume when it is convenient for you.

    Please contact me either at[masked] or via e-mail at [masked]

      No problem Maharaj. I can speak with my director and ask if he has a fit for someone with your skill set.

      September 26, 2013

  • Tony G.

    Given the presenter's accent, at times, I had to listen very hard to understand what he was saying.

    Hi everybody, I am new to web design, who could help to answer me the difference between Wordpress and Dreamweaver?
    Thanks!

      So see my comments here: http://cpha.ca/upload...­

      Ed, thanks for that insight on Dreamweaver versus WordPress (and other CMSes for that matter.)

      September 19, 2013

  • Renais N.

    Thank Peter for referring me to this group. This will be an awesome way to find out which technologies are "hot".

    Just a though. You can register this group as a non-profit for $155 through the province. It takes 4-6 weeks to process the application. Once you have a non-profit group # you can get large rooms in libraries and universities very inexpensively. The OPL rents 20 - 60 person capacity rooms with projectors for $25. http://www.wikihow.com/Start-a-Not-For-Profit-Organization-in-Ontario,-Canada
