Critique my Joomla Website - August 8th Meetup

Ever wonder if you're doing things right? Is there a better way?

We inspect your Joomla Site!Well, we, at Joomla Detroit want to Critique YOUR Joomla site! LOL. So yes, if you want a second opinion on your JOOMLA website, and would like another set of eyes to take a look, we're here for you on August 8th, 2013 at the Detroit Zoo (Wildlife Interpretive Gallery Theater) starting promptly at 7 p.m.

(for those of you at the July meeting, my August vacation plans fell through)

We will look at your website and critique the following:

  • Look and feel
  • User experience
  • Functionality of site
  • (Joomla Sites only please)

What we are not doing - Sorry to say that we will not actually be logging in to your administrator side and making changes.

Collectively as a group we'll discuss and give pointers about your website, but there is no way in the time we have available to get in there and do the work. If you do need assistance after getting feedback on your website, Joomla Detroit recommends the Detroit Web Developers as very experienced Joomla experts to help get the job done.

How it works:

  • We will access your public-facing website (please do not ask us to evaluate development sites) and view it as a normal website visitor. We will take 5 minutes per site.
  • It is easier to see flaws when someone else looks at the site and tries to use it.
  • We will make recommendations as we click around and use your website.
  • Finally, we'll open the floor for discussion and suggestions from the User Group. We will allow 5 minutes for quick discussion.

Please do keep in mind this will be a very high level evaluation and suggestion process. We will have many websites to evaluate, and have to give equal time to all who come for ideas and assistance.

If you want a second opinion on your website, then signup RIGHT NOW to attend this meetup!
