There are many things in life that need to change every once in a while. Jobs, where we live, vacuum cleaner bags, our socks… Whether it’s due to fear or laziness or a lack of resources to make the change, we can sometimes be resistant to change. The Flex Guy website has been using WordPress for the front end blog for quite a while now, but will soon be moving to Joomla!. This will allow for a more full-featured website with the ability to grow to something a little more professional.
I’ve been working with Joomla! lately to deploy beautiful websites that don’t require a lot of initial work to get them up and running. There are a large number of templates out there for Joomla! that are very well designed. My favorites come from RocketTheme.com, and you’ll probably see that the new site will be built with one from them. They have great support and build their themes so that they are easily customizable.
I am also helping to create the Seattle Flex User Group (SeaFlex) website using Joomla! I’m gaining a lot of experience with it lately since I have been creating websites for clients as Sound Design Team. So, I have fun staying busy, building websites, developing Flex applications and keeping Adobe fat and happy.
For now, don’t be surprised if The Flex Guy takes a little break from blogging (or continues to take a little break 😉 )
