Used to have the freedom to attend geek dinners at very least. I have been working full time for a few months, following the boards, and realizing that there is a huge tech movement in the city that I am bummed I am missing out on
I try to stay active on as many boards as possible, but in-person meetings in our favorite city are always enjoyable.
Point of the post, who else is in this position? In this position and making it to a lot of the goings-on?
And, how can we include people that may be in my similar position in the creative movement? What's going on during the weekends?
I graduated recently, started off working with a talented team of web developers, and since have been the heading up the marketing department at a local corporation.
I feel like I have learned a TON since getting out, and want to share and reconnect to the local scene, but getting home around 7PM is making it tough.
Thanks all in advance!
I have a client that would like to build a small social networking site for her circle of friends and family. I have been looking into a few different content management systems and I came across SocialWeb.
Check it out here: http://www.socialwebcms.com .
Anyone have any experience with this particular CMS?
They seem to have a very active community which is usually a good sign, and from the looks of some of the example sites it seems pretty stable.
Hey guys, I've been doing a lot of work with WP lately and it has really started to grow on me. I'm curious to see how many local WP devs and users we have out there so we can exchange ideas / tips / techniques.
What are some of the best plug-ins out there? What should be developed to further extend WP?
Thanks for sharing, I've always appreicated the simplicity used in your designs.
I think you have accomplished the "let the work speak for itself" approach with the subtleness of colors used.
The only thing that I noticed was the contrast between the text/background could be changed a bit. When viewing on my mac the text seems to be easier to read as opposed to my PC machine at work. Perhaps a shade darker would allow it to be more legible - just my two cents :]
It's been awhile man good to see you on here. My first reccomendation, as a designer, would be to just hire a designer but I understand that working under deadlines can be stressful and having a template site as plan B is a great idea.
Although this post was made over a month ago, I'd like to share a couple of sites that have treated me well in the past (mostly for wordpress):
Themeforest.com - Good for Wordpress,Joomla, even PSD templates
http://www.organicthemes.com/ - wordpress
http://www.pagelines.com/ - wordpress
Hope that helps gets you started.
I have done a few large-scale projects in secondlife and might be able to help or at least guide you in the direction of people that can.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out one of the projects at: http://casablanca.life3solutions.com
Thanks, Allan. I have checked out Ning and presented it to the client, however, she seemed to think that it wouldn't handle the level of customization she has in mind.
Do you (or does anyone else?) have any experience using Ning or an idea of it's particular limitations?
I think Buddypress would prove to be a very useful tool for educators as well, allowing students in different classes to communicate effectively without all of the social 'noise' that myspace and facebook allow. It could also be taken a bit further to where local professionals could jump on board to provide advice or tips and techniques. Certainly seems like a promising up and coming app.
