Chad Heinle, a Senior Consultant from High Monkey Consulting, will be sharing the steps we followed to build our own website in Kentico EMS 7.  This workshop will first review the planning and requirements stage and the creation of an Information Architecture and wireframes.  The majority of the webinar will be focused on the build process and the implementation of Kentico EMS 7.  In addition to seeing the public facing and CMS Desk views of HIGHMONKEY.COM, Chad Heinle will be doing some live site building on a Kentico demo site.  Everyone is welcome to attend, however, this workshop is primarily intended for webmasters, site builders, page and site designers, and content editors.  There will be some discussion about the details of how things are built but this workshop is not a “deep dive” into code or custom development.
This “build it” workshop will give you an overview of what goes into building a website using the Kentico EMS platform and some best practices to consider for your next website build.
