Last December I got my first two independent projects almost simultaneously. Creating these two websites during the holiday season was pretty hectic. Fortunately, contact with both clients was smooth and clear and both are happy with the end result.
The first website is www.natuurlijkbevallen.nu, which had to be a CMS and preferably WordPress for easy management. Other requirements/requests were a portal only accessible by members, a contact form and a timetable for upcoming courses.
This is the first site I’ve created using WordPress and because I’ve had no prior experience with PHP development took longer than initially planned for. Thankfully there are tons of tutorials out there and a bunch of awesome plugins: for the members-only portal I’ve used the WP-members plugin, Contact Form 7 for the contact form and Post Expirator for the timetable part. Development was done locally using MAMP.
