After many years of fighting with dotNetNuke and self-hosting I have decided to bite the bullet and setup using WordPress. Two reasons for this, the first is updating two systems was a pain, so much so that I had stopped updating the website. Secondly, EventBrite which I currently use to manage the user group attendance has integrated their platform with WordPress to create a seamless Event management solution e.g. you can the upcoming events widget on your right.
The net result seems to be a much easier system to manage which should free me up to concentrate on what matters most, like finding more great speakers for all the upcoming events. I’ll give this a try for a month or so and if it works out we’ll migrate the domain name as well.
Let me know what you think.
