“Cooking up a Website”

“Cooking up a website” is our irregular (bi-monthly?) introduction to the technology behind websites.

Take a look at the VANEL Calendar to check for scheduled sessions.

VANEL offers these sessions as part of our ongoing IT, technology and website support services to our members and local community and voluntary organisations.

We’ve run WebClub for nearly two years now, supporting groups to build and improve their websites, and “Cooking up a website” has been a popular session for those totally unfamiliar with how websites are designed, built, constructed and maintained.  Many attendees of this session then go on to join and attend WebClub to help support them as they tackle their web development projects.

Each session is two hours, with presentations, demonstrations and discussions to help demystify the complex world of web technology.

If you’ve already built websites or are familiar with how they work, then this probably isn’t the training for you.

However, if you know little but would like to learn, then this should be a good introduction for you.

We look at…

what ingredients does a website need ?
how much does a website cost ?
how long will it take to build a website ?
who needs to be involved ?
can I get a volunteer to build it ?
who should I approach?
what are html, css, php ? should I care ?
will someone do it all for me?
Should we bother ?
what else do I need to know ?

If this would be helpful, check for the latest dates and book onto a session.
