You only need to know how to use Microsoft Windows and a browser such as Microsoft Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox to start learning everything needed for building a professional website.
In these free sessions you will be using a fully functioning practice website to become familiar with creating content including uploading images and creating menu items to navigate to your newly created content. www.aurateal.com In about two hours we introduce you to hosting, content production, media tools, site navigation, modular design, directories of extensions and templates, SEO, and traditional marketing. We will also be able to answer all of your questions about building websites for your social, commercial or political enterprises.
If you have any questions you can contact Jed Keenan using the contact form, email or on 079 5096 3069. The session is run by Jed Keenan who has been building Joomla websites for 4 years. He is currently Chair of his award winning Residents’ Association and has worked in public policy and community development for about 5 years including working as a researcher for Diane Abbott MP.
Joomla is a free open source content management system (CMS) and is very straightforward to learn and to use. It is about 7 years old and is in its 3rd generation. It is a worldwide community project and also slightly better than its closest rivals WordPress and Drupal. It is used by Peogeot, the Guggenheim Museum, Danone, etc.
