I am a freelance web developer. My specialty is empowering end users to manage their own websites. For this I favor using WordPress, Plone, and Django.
For small sites WordPress makes an excellent content management system. Most people use it as a blogging tool, but over the past few years they’ve enabled more and more content management features including limited workflow. There are many many themes to choose from to create a look and feel for a WordPress website and can be easily customized to suit your needs.
For large websites with many users Plone is one of the best open source content management systems and with the advent of Plone 3 it handily competes with some of the bigger name commercial systems such as SiteCore, RedDot, Ektron or Alfresco. You can compare Plone to them or any other CMS at http://www.cmsmatrix.org/matrix/cms-matrix. This is a well supported CMS. It’s easy for end users to get up to speed. It has very powerful workflow options and some of the best security you’ll find in any system.
Django is a web framework. It’s great for building web applications. I’ll more to say about it later.
If you are in Tucson or Southern Arizona and are looking to create a website or wanting to enhance and existing one feel free to contact me. I’m also available as an independent contractor for remote jobs. Just fill out the contact form.
