     Location:  At PEAK Internet - 15th and Western in Corvallis

     As you work on activities and businesses, the website for 
     that you have needs to mirror/reflect the ongoing activity of
     the group. The more that the website is a model for the
     activity, the more effective the web site will be.

     Over the last 4 years there has been an explosion of 
     Content Management Systems (CMS) for web sites. A Content
     management system allows groups of people to use web pages
     to edit and manage a web site. There are dozens and dozens
     of different types of CMS packages. Enough to 
     generate websites that compare them like:

	      http://www.opensourcecms.com
	      http://www.cmsmatrix.org

     Over the last six months, several sites have needed help 
     with web services. This talk will go over several of the
     features that make a good content management system and will
     talk about some of the ways that drupal can be extented.

     Drupal is the CMS that currently runs the Corvallis
     LUG website at 

     http://www.lug.corvallis.or.us

     Come learn more about how drupal does what it does.
