I recommend Basecamp http://www.basecamphq.com/ – which I think is the best and easiest business collaboration tool around

You can use it to:

– Assign to-dos and tasks
– Post messages and gather feedback
– Simple scheduling and permissions
– Share files internally or with clients
– Track people’s time

I use it in my consultancies, and my clients love it. You don’t even have to be a techie to use it.

Question by awe: I want to make a web developer portfolio. HELP?!?
So here’s the deal. I know javascipt, jsp, xhtml, css and all that, but I haven’t really done any major work yet. (I’m going to learn php.)
So I wanted to create an online portfolio – so that I can get a job. I don’t know where to start! I have a few questions:

1) I would have to buy hosting right? Do you have any suggestions for cheap hosting that supports php?
2) What should I put in my portfolio? What sort of simple php stuff can I make so that it can be put in the portfolio?
3) WHERE DO I START??? ๐Ÿ™

I wouldn’t have to buy a domain name would I? I can just get some free service, can’t I?

I have no idea what to do. Please help! :((
Thanks!!!

If you want a job you should have the skills to make the website yourself.

There are many website hosting services. Just google for “web hosting ratings” and choose one.

You can use a CMS to manage and create your site. Here you can try popular CMS. Most have an install guide in their .zip file when you download them: http://www.opensourcecms.com/ .

If you want further help don’t hesitate to contact me.
