Between doing Video Shoots and Website Upgrades for New Divine Mercy Church as well as functioning as their Webmaster and Project Manager, I was busy working on a new website for the Central Area Neighborhood Association for Wilton Manors.
Today, all the technical details were completed and the website for CANA went live.
This is the fifth website that I have created for organizations using the Google Sites technology. Google Sites is a great way to get a basic website up and running, especially for Not For Profits as those organizations have been granted free space on Google's Servers. I have heard that they may or may not begin charging for that service in the future, and I have heard that it may or may not go Fee Based.
The benefit of using the technology is that it is completely "Cloud Based". Got a small organization and you don't want to have to worry about whether you have a dedicated server architecture built in an office server closet? This works for you since Sites is hosted by Google. You get access to a limited number of free services such as Google Docs, Gmail accounts, and other things so in theory you can completely run an organization virtually without ever buying a corporate computer. Feel like making a change on a website from your laptop on vacation in a far flung corner of the world - you can do it if you have internet.
I wouldn't personally put any financial information on a "web app" but that's my security preference, you may not agree.
At any rate, CANA has their web site, it's up and running.
The other sites I have created were for the Joe Angelo for Mayor Campaign, the Celeste Ellich for Commissioner Campaign, New Divine Mercy Church, as well as working on my blog.
I am also the Social Media Director for Wilton Manors Main Street helping to voice their public presence on Facebook and on their blog. I also have worked on their current webpage that is expected to go through some changes and a refresh soon.
Having done web development as a Programmer and as a Project Manager as well as doing Implementation of Websites, Large Scale implementation of Legacy systems, and Accounting Systems help in rounding out that list.
I'm also That Guy that people call up for help with their PCs since I've implemented more desktop systems than I would care to count. I've also implemented Servers running Windows Server 2003 and 2007, implemented SQL Server (various versions) as well as created servers running Linux and the LAMP Stack.
The Lamp Stack is a set of technologies that will allow you to serve out web pages to the world as well as function as a regular file server as needed and it's all free.
Most of that stuff can run "virtually" and on a computer using VMWare or Microsoft Virtual PC.
Not a bad cover letter, I may have to use this since I've done this and more.
