Content Management Systems and building your eBizWritten by Elray Jones
Content Management Systems and building your eBiz
As a retired Software Engineer(big word for under paid corporation slave). I got tired of setting around to house telling my cat to stop doing things cats do. I started a side business repairing computers. But I messed call of coding and creating things... that's what I like best about design be it software or graphics. When I worked at (Big unnamed corporation, because of on going law suit) we used things like CASE Tools, UML, COBRA, UniCenter and other things that will make you pull your hair out. When i started to look for a manageable platform to work with dynamic websites i have never heard of Opensource CMS's I was looking into .NET, then one day while poking around with Cpanel at my host i found PhpNuke...etc...and rest is history. Most Content Management Systems, are a bit adhoc in there design, but you can work around that. Fast deployment of sites is what i find Content Management Systems, useful for. The learning curve for a neophyte is quite high, but design is key. After your curve goes down you can deploy a site in a day!
Some Content Management Systems, CMS for short, can cost thousands of dollars. While others are opensource. I am focusing here on opensource CMS called CPGNuke DragonFly. There are many more opensource CMS's that you can test drive at http://www.opensourcecms.com .
