After building websites on the Joomla! platform for over a decade, Barron has a solid understanding of all the ways Joomla can be developed for everything from a simple 5 page business website, to a powerful blog & website, company portal, or as part of an overall web presence integrating other online/cloud services. Joomla! offers a power extension development community and Barron has worked with just about all of the premium extension developers on projects over the years, and understands how you can combine extensions to create a powerful blog, internet directory, social community, company portal, club or organization website, private membership site, and much more.
When Joomla! is not the solution for you, there are other powerful platforms available and all easily developed to meet your specific needs.
Do you want a new website, but want to learn how to manage and update it yourself? Are you just interested in Joomla and want to learn the basics of installation, setup, and building? Do you want someone who can be right there with you online via screenshare to walk you through all of the parts and processes Joomla has to offer, and take you through complete setup, from hosting, to install, to configuration? Then SPIdeas has the Joomla Training service for you!
It's easy to get started. Just consider all the steps and topics you want to cover, and in a few hours of collaborative online time, you will be up and running from scratch. We will walk you through the process of setting up your Shared Hosting Plan, creating mySQL database, uploading & extracting Joomla files, installing Joomla, walk through all Global Configuration settings, install necessary plugins & extensions, and more.
During your training session[s], the following topics can also be covered: Joomla template and extensions, the Joomla Extension Directory, paid vs. free extensions & plugins, which premium/paid Joomla extensions should every website have installed, integrations with outside services, and more.
There are many eCommerce solutions available out there. There are hosted/cloud based solutions like Magento, GoDaddy Shopping Cart, and Shopify. There are self-hosted shopping carts like Magento CE, VirtuCart, and others. Depending on your needs, there may be one that is better suited to your project than others, but it is easy to say that Shopify is one of the most powerful for the money. From a development perspective, Shopify is realtively quick to develop and deploy [depending on complexity of store and outside integrations]. And, Shopify's ability to run both your online store and your brick & mortar retail sales make it a solution that's worth the initial development investment.
