In past few months I have adviced many of my clients to use wordpress as content management system. There are many reasons to suggest wordpress as cms for website such as:
- Easy to change designes
WordPress themes quickly meeting ever changing design requirements of the client.
Themes & Plugins for wordpress makes life easier for the developers.
Clients wonders how quickly we implement the complex things, thanks to plugins and plugin developers.
- Search engine friendly
There are many seo plugins available such as All in on seo, makes it easy to make website search engine friendly.
We can specify custom meta details of each page, makes search engine friendly urls and many seo related tasks. Its all very quick and easy.
- No technology experts required
Using wordpress as CMS saves lot of coding, designing and implementation time. Over all a website can be managed and tweeked by some one who has some technical awareness, therefore programmers now can concentrate on more complex things rather than day to day activities of managing websites.
- Low cost
Clients need professional, quick and scalable solutions at much affordable price.
I can recommend wordpress for all budget clients. (more…)
For years we have been hiring IT professionals in our company and the biggest problem we have ever faced is the quality and standards of IT students. We have never found any fresher who can start working independently in an IT company. I am surprised by lack of their knowledge and expertise. Even after completing their graduations, post graduation or engineering programme in IT; they still do not know what kind of job they will like to do and what opportunities are available.
This is because of lack of guidance and limited knowledge of faculties. Let me give you my own example. I was a technical trainer in Asset International, Ludhiana and I used to teach dos, windows, HTML, Flash and MCSE. The course books had hardly covered any practical usage (except MCSE). Students who used to learn web designing, programming or networking they were never taught about practical usage of what they are learning. If we try to give students more practical knowledge then we run out of time, so faculties have no other choice then just finishing the course material. And thats the dilemma, Not only IT but entire education system is a business only, and it is one of the strongest money making industry. Therefore the commercial benefits of Education System are not producing good quality professionals. (more…)
