CMS's have a wide range of applications
Simple static website
Simple personal homepage
Basically, with most of the popular CMS', you really can make any type of website you want !!
Why are open source CMS’ becoming so popular
Cost is naturally a factor,
Open alternatives offer better features, an increased ability to modify and customize easily, and behave with more consistency in different browsers than most of their closed counterparts
Many publishers are switching to free, open-source content management systems from expensive proprietary ones.
A lot of seemingly ‘simple’ sites are also using a CMS in their back-end So that they are ready when the content becomes voluminous and complex !
This is resulting in a surge in interest in this area. Job opportunities are also on the rise

Wait a minute, isn’t this open source ?
But open source is mainstream today
Google has not one but two open-source operating systems: Android and Chrome OS.
Apache remains hugely popular among web servers.
Red Hat is a successful public company posting strong financial results with its business model of services and support for open-source software.
Firefox is taking away market share from Internet Explorer every month. The list can go on…
Each CMS has its own advantages and part of the job lies in choosing one of them
Joomla, for instance, installs and manages modules in a very visual, "friendly" manner.
Drupal tends to require more "hands-on" work with deploying modules. A site function might take minutes to roll out, or significantly longer.
WordPress has historically been a blogging platform, but there are a number of features and plugins that invite further visitor interaction
And coming to our learning programs now
Some of the things you will learn in our program
Explore the differences between the major CMSs, and understand which CMS option best fits your site
Discover "speciality CMSs" for specific requirements: intranets, document sharing, community, e-commerce, blogging, and more.
Investigate the plug-ins available for each CMS - plug-ins extend the power of a CMS, meaning that you can build features into your site that the CMS on its own might not provide
We will focus on Word Press and Drupal.
