Create and Manage Your Website Workshop 06/09/2013
Over the years, while engaging with APEX users, we noticed a common problem - their company WEBSITE. Those who can afford it have paid professional website creators to do this for them. Some have just used interns or students to knock up a quick website for them. The problem is never just the creation. It's the maintenance. Every now and then we get calls from our APEX users screaming out loud, pleading us to get someone to help them continue from what they have. Sometimes even revamping the website completely.
We have always encouraged users to create and maintain their own websites. You don't need to be an IT Geek to be able to do your own website. It's really not that difficult with the proliferation of easy and free on-line web authoring tools like weebly. Some of them have indeed achieved this otherwise complex task (that's what "professionals" and IT geeks will tell you) over just one weekend. They are also now updating projects, adding images, switching themes, layouts as often as they prefer.. all with just a few mouse clicks and drag-drops.
We held our first free-for-APEX-users hands-on web authoring / maintenance workshop on Friday 6th September 2013 from 10:30am-12:30noon. WOW! It was indeed a fun and educational session. They brought their own project files, logos, images, write-ups and we covered the following topics:
Here's the first batch of our "graduates":
