We held the Joomlashack Conference over 3 days in mid-November.
This was a free conference featuring 20 of the best speakers from around the Joomla world.
I was amazed at how good the presentations were. We're currently editing all the videos and posting them to the Joomlashack YouTube channel.
This presentation (51:01) was from Duke Speer. I have known him for over a decade now. Duke is based in Park City, Utah. He has been deep inside non-profit and project management work.
He runs a company called Turntothepros.com and is a great guy and a great speaker. In this presentation, he talks about how to systematize your business so that every website you produce meets certain standards that become your brand and ensure long-lasting relationships with your client.
Ever get to the end of a project and the client asks about "Where is X?", "What happened to Y?", "Why don't we have Z?" In many cases, this reflects an inadequate discovery phase and keeping the client involved in an agile development process. In some cases, it is also improperly set expectations and not hitting all the checkboxes for a "complete" site regardless of what the client requested.
Scope creep does happen, but this talk will not help you solve that. Instead it is about systematizing your business so that every website you produce would meet certain standards that become your brand and ensure long-lasting relationships.
In Joomla business world, there are always some specific extensions and supporting software that is installed in nearly every site we deliver, and some others we would simply not install.
In this talk, Duke will walk through some of the business sides of building Joomla sites, how he builds them for maintainability, and his checklist for achieving a "complete" deliverable.
