The Reluctant Web Manager
    Monday June 13, 2011 11:00am - 11:50am @ Room 107
    With more and more web sites coming online every day, staff members are sometimes tasked with supporting those sites without the benefit of a background in IT. Content management systems have helped, but there are still a lot of people who are thrust into this position without the preferred experience. What is the baseline of skills, training and resources you should have if you haven't worked in IT for the past 10 years and find yourself with a vital role in maintaining your team's web site? This session will attempt to answer that question by introducing (or reviewing) concepts and providing resources for continued growth beyond this session. It will encourage participants to ask questions that they may have been unwilling to ask in the past. Some of possible topics include: * The core technologies (html, css and javascript) * Web standards and accessibility * Image and file management * Server-side technologies * Writing for the web * User Testing Perhaps: * Basic web server administration * Version control Discussion and audience participation is encouraged.
    Level:  Introductory - Assumes no prior knowledge of topic
    Prerequisite knowledge:  Basic understanding of web technologies. It's helpful if participants are responsible for at least a portion of a web site, but not necessary.
    Audience will gain:  Users will gain a better understanding of the skills they should have to effectively manage a web site and will leave with resources to help them build those skills.
