Workshop: One Tangible Skill – Choosing a Website Platform

One Tangible Skill

Making a website for your organization can be easy— but knowing where to start is hard! In the past couple of years, the options for “website platforms” — the software to build a website with — have multiplied. It can be bewildering to a new person: should you use WordPress? Squarespace? Shopify? or something else? What about collecting donations for your organization, recruiting volunteers, selling swag online, or learning more about and reaching your supporters?

Come for a short evening class that will cover the basics and how to choose based on your goals for your website. You’ll leave, ready to start making your own blog, organizational website, or whatever type of site you are interested in making!

Bringing your own laptop/tablet would be helpful, but not necessary.

This edition of One Tangible Skill happens at The Stand. Date/time has been changed to Tuesday Nov. 1 @ 7:00 PM.

Rob Butz has been active for the past five years as a web developer in Edmonton and Saskatoon, focussed on website development for politically progressive non profit organizations. He works with Parkland Institute, Core Neighbourhood Youth Co-op, Station 20 West, and The Stand
