The Launchpad: Is Your Business Idea Feasible? (Free)
October 3, 12:30 PM
University of Miami, 1306 Stanford Dr., Coral Gables FL
Just because you have a great idea doesn’t mean that the market is ready for it, that it is economically viable, or that you are the right person (or team) to carry out that idea. Join The Launch Pad as we explore what business feasibility means, and how you analyze and determine whether your great new idea is feasible in your hands.
John Studdard, long time Webmondayer and Drupal Enthusiast Extraordinaire is going to talk about Drupal in the Public Sector. OpenPublic is a distribution of Drupal code – a compilation of open source modules, themes, and features that together, make up the foundation of a web site built for the public sector. It does not have everything that every public sector organization ever needs. Rather, it has a foundation of common elements that create an extensible base for building an excellent public sector site. John will also be announcing the upcoming Drupal Camp South Florida, which will take place on October 22nd at the Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale.
