Screen name: vincent.vanwyk
Title/Functional role: Mr
Project title: Art of Living
Time to complete : 1 October 2009
Project details: The Art of Living Foundation is a non-profit, educational and charitable organisation that operates in more than 140 countries and is dedicated to serving society by strengthening the individual. Their self-development programmes offer techniques that eliminate stress, calm the mind, improve health, expand awareness, resolve conflict and encourage people from all backgrounds, religions and cultures to come together in celebration and service. I am in the process of developing a Content Management System to allow both Administrators and Teachers to manage the Web site.
Resources used: All available online resources
Parties involved: The Content Management System is solely my responsibility … both UI and back-end logic/database integration. The Web site was designed and developed by a Front-end developer.
 What do you read?: At this stage I only use online resources. My long-term plan is to move into a Project Management position, where I will need to obtain knowledge online books can assist me with.

    This sounds like a very interesting project. Can you give me more details about what platform and technologies you are using to complete the project? What about any challenges you had to overcome and how you went about overcoming them? Or, perhaps you have some suggestions or pointers for others who may be in a similar situation?

      Scott and Chris,Thanks for the trackback and the cmmtenos. Apple pushed a new version of Safari the other night and that seems to help with a few quirky things I had on one overlaping the Setup, Help Logout links, but now it seems to be fine.
