So over the last 3 months I have learned how to install, configure and design Joomla-based web sites. Joomla, for those unaware, is a content management system. A content management system is ideal for sites with a lot of content or content that changes on a daily basis. I have built a complete and fully functional joomla site for one client now, and I am working on a second.
From a design/development standpoint, joomla allows much more control for the end user and client, but very little design control. You’re kind of locked in to certain parameters, but ultimately, it is much more useful than a straight HTML site.
Yes, I know… my inner nerd is leaking out. I apologize in advance.
