Class: Project Management Boot Camp Nov. 19th

Project Management Boot Camp for Web Developers, November 19, 2011 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

It doesn’t matter how well you sell, or how talented you are at web development — if you can’t manage projects you’ll struggle to make a profit and have satisfied customers.

This fast-paced 3 hour workshop is lead by a veteran software developer with over two decades of experience in consulting and technical project management. Here you will learn how to manage web development projects so they stay on time and on budget.

This Project Management Boot Camp will quickly skim the academic side of project management, and then focus on the practical and tactical skilled required to develop websites with modern open source tools. You will learn how to bid projects, develop project workflows, and get customer signoffs on finished projects. Learn to identify and resolve problems before they take your project hopelessly off track.

Topics include:

  • Project Management Basics
  • Process Flow for Developing A Website
  • Bids, Contracts & Getting Paid
  • Staying On Schedule and On Budget
  • Project Management Advice from the Trenches
  • Managing Multiple Simultaneous Projects
