Are you interested in websites and content management? Maybe you have been hearing a lot about WordPress, Drupal, DotNetNuke or other CMS software and are having a touch time telling the difference between them all or deciding which one to use. Well, I just recently put forth a proposal to do an Intro to DotNetNuke session for the Charleston BarCamp conference in November. Please take a look and vote it up!
DotNetNuke is the leading open source content management system for the Windows Server platform. More importantly it is an extremely powerful and secure framework on which to build robust websites. And yes, the world of open source can exist and even thrive within the Microsoft environment. From the granular security model which allow system administrators to precisely define website permissions at the site, page or module level to the rich market of third party themes and add-ons, DNN offers a mature environment that rivals or surpasses those on other platforms.
In this session I will give an introduction to DNN and the way it operates. We’ll also look at a few demo sites and discuss their operation. Finally we will talk about DNN in comparison to other website tools like WordPress and Drupal and deal directly, honestly and rabidly with the differences between each and their relative strengths and weaknesses.
I am very happy to announce that I have formally partnered with graphic designer and web creator Amanda Albertson to create a new firm named DesignTechWeb. Up until this time we both have been operating independently although we have worked together on a number of projects. After continued collaboration and seeing how our areas of expertise complemented each other, Amanda and I made the decision to join forces as a single entity. And now, after operating that way for a few months, we are proud to make the partnership public!
At the heart of our philosophy, and the name of the firm, DesignTechWeb, is the acknowledgement of both the graphic design and the technology components which go into the creation of sophisticated and secure websites. Together, Amanda and I have nearly 40 years of web experience. We have designed websites, marketing and systems for companies large and small – from restaurants to not-for-profits, from healthcare providers to lawyers. Today we choose to concentrate primarily on small to medium sized local businesses and the not-for-profit sector.
DesignTechWeb concentrates on web design, development and search engine optimization, specializing in content management systems that you can easily update yourself. All websites are custom designed for each client. Through integration with social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, a full service approach can be implemented to meet the varied needs of different organizations.
I am very happy about this partnership, and I hope you will visit us over at http://www.DesignTechWeb.com. And, of course, we hope you will call us if you have any website or social media needs! This site, MichaelCarnell.com, the site bearing my name, will remain up and functional, will house my occasional podcasts, and will be where I can go on diatribes about system maintenance, security, VB and VB.Net programming, and mobile technology.
