EBBC Webserver Training Session

The EBBC has implemented a new "Content Management System" on the webserver. This allows for upload of multimedia content, such as image galleries, video, and pdf files. There is also an online Events calendar, blogging, and other capabilities for collaboration.

This training session will show you how to take advantage of these new capabilities. It is open to all EBBC members, and no prior experience with web programming is required. However, you will need to bring a laptop computer in order to fully participate.
