Our company is looking for a designer who has extensive experiece developing Joomla/Mambo. If you feel their might be something better for my purposes, please tell me why.
Template design as well as custom changes within the Joomla platform.
Ability to install additional components and modules. For my purposes a forum would be very important.
What I am looking for is an ongoing relationship. This particular website will be nothing more than a sample website called "Bowling Associations.org.
I'm a marketing person not a programmer. I'm a Past President of a local bowling association, so I know how they work. The goal for the next 1-2 years is 25-50 websites for local bowling associations. If it is done right, I think that is a very attainable goal.
A CMS would work very well for that type of organization, because they need to do a lot of constant updating, yet very few use this type of platform.
Someone who shows me samples of their work is more likely to get this job. I've made a mistake in the past with a provider, and don't want to make one again.
