Fife and Tayside T4 group meets for the first time

Gareth passes judgment on T4 Site Manager

Gareth (Web Architect at the University of St Andrews) passes judgment on T4 Site Manager.

This morning 11 T4 administrators and users from the universities of Abertay, Dundee and St Andrews gathered in the moot court room at the University of Dundee for what is hoped will be a regular, quarterly meeting.

The idea for a smaller, regional T4 group arose from a conversation between Ross Haggart (Dundee) and myself at the most recent T44U conference in Dublin in November. A wider group of T4 admins used to meet prior to Scottish Web Folk meetings but as these haven’t met for a while it was felt that perhaps a local group might be useful, to share ideas, lessons learned, best practices, code snippets and hacks, etc.

Over two hours this morning we talked about general issues surrounding content, editors, internet vs intranet, style guides, TerminalFour Site Manager vs Microsoft SharePoint (“install in a day, configure in a lifetime” … using a dedicated team of .NET developers) before turning our attention to the technical aspects of how we have configured Site Manager at the three institutions.

A couple of useful resources were recommended:
