Make the Most of the Twitter Profile Page

Figure_1

If there’s one thing that’s true about any Web-based application, it’s that change is inevitable. While Twitter doesn’t often make major changes to its interface, the recent update to its user profile feature was a complete facelift, leaving a cleaner look and more features for sharing information about yourself with others.

What are we missing in our various CMS courses?

My last post about Joomla! triggered some buzz in the twittersphere and prompted more discussion. Jen Kramer wrote to me that Maria Langer (lynda.com WordPress 2.7 Essential Training author) contacted her:

Maria Langer contacted me by Twitter and said she’d love it if you asked the same question about a WordPress course. Now I’m wondering if we couldn’t make this a more generic series of movies, suitable for Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla. They all have the same starting place for their customized templates/themes — a static HTML web page.

Tom Geller (lynda.com Drupal Essential Training author) has been coordinating a CMS Overview course that would explain the strengths and weaknesses of the different systems and help newcomers navigate which choice to make.

So, open question to you all – what are we missing in our various CMS courses?
