Denver JUG July Meetup : Project Management

Joomla comes with it's own set of tools and challenges when it comes to management and maintenance. A single Joomla installation has a number of pieces and parts to deal with. Running multiple installations for clients and businesses makes things even more complicated. No matter the scenario, website management is always important, problems can be frustrating and time consuming, not to mention costly.

Having an understanding of how Joomla works and how it can be set up in different scenarios can be helpful. Using a system to set up sites and projects can help us avoid common problems, and troubleshoot any problems that might come up.
