Cold Fusion Application Development
Intranet: Each module starts with building an Intranet. This is an administration section of the web site that is password protected and assigned to an administrator who would manage the web site’s content without having to depend on writing html. It works with Cold Fusion (*.cfm), and ties into to any modules that an administrator might need. The administrator can enter content directly into a public or private piece using a predetermined set of fields.
Your site is virtually unlimited in the amount of information that can be streamed into the sight. You also have control of where and when that information is shown depending on the Modules you chose. Once a module is setup an administrator will easily be able to update your site without having to depend on a web master.
Content Management Module
This module will be a custom designed application replacing the “static” section of the web site. The module will enable automatic streaming of the content with the ability to add, edit, and delete web pages through an easy to use WYSIWYG tool (similar to MS Word). The WYSIWYG tool has the ability to upload graphics (jpeg, png, gif format), create hyper links, assign location of web page (category, sub category, public/members only, and archives).
It includes 4 template pages for built in common graphics; one for the “members only” area and one for the public area with corresponding editable header and footer templates. The navigational links will be controlled through the content module that automatically places hyperlinks and supporting graphics (optional) linking all pages created through the WYSIWYG tool.
This module will also have the ability to display/hide pages, change location of pages from Public Area to “Members Only” (or both areas), and all pages can be archived for retrieval at a later date. Each page can be sorted by Category and Title. Also includes up-loadable graphics for buttons and 2 views; WYSIWYG/HTML format.
Event System Module:
This a custom designed application built for the content, registration and maintenance of any event or conference that you might put on. It allows an “Event Coordinator or Manager” to add all pertinent information about an event and make updates without the need of any HTML or programming knowledge.

Each conference on the registration page will link to a detailed event or conference set of pages showing times of conference, speakers, agendas, and sponsors. Once a person registers the event Coordinator will be able to print a badge for them.
This module has 5 basic elements where all the information about an event gets tied in together starting in the Event manager.

If you have introductions, coffee brakes, keynote speakers, guest speakers, slide shows, presentations, lunches, they can all be chronologically displayed and made available through the event detail pages linked from the registration page. Agendas are created automatically and are available for editing after an event or conference is created. Depending on how many days an event or conference is will depend on how many agendas are available to edit for that event.See Siliconsound.org for details.
