Joomla! is an award-winning content management system (CMS) which enables you to build websites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla! the most popular website software available. Best of all, Joomla! is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone. Parent Technology uses open source solutions to keep cost down without sacrificing functionality.
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your website, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to. Parent Technology will develop a solution for you, and you can manage and update the site yourself.
Joomla! is used all over the world to power websites of all shapes and sizes. For example:
Many of Parent Technology's clients need specialized functionality. Joomla! is highly customizeable and thousands of extensions (most for free under the GPL license) are available in the Joomla Extensions Directory.
