I am starting on a new project to help our middle school. The athletic teams and PTA do not have any sort of web presence so information is scattered across lots of web sites and it changes from year to year. My wife is running the Boosters Club this year and asked me if I’d help put something together. My work with the MacDolphins swim team has been a good experience for this as I want to assemble something that is sustainable and easy to add content to.
I’ve decided to use Google Apps for as much as a I can as (a) it is free and (b) it is unlikely to go away. My plan is to use WordPress for the web site and Google Apps for pretty much everything else. I am hoping to integrate some of the Google Apps content, in particular, calendars, on the web site.
