Schipul - The Web Marketing Company CEO Ed Schipul to Present at Ignite OSCON 2013

Will discuss generational trends in working with developers

Ed Schipul, President and CEO of TendenciHOUSTON, July 22, 2013 – Schipul - The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and software development company, today announced that President and CEO Ed Schipul will address the nuances of generational trends in working with developers at Ignite OSCON 2013, which is part of the open source convention OSCON, in Portland, Ore.

In the talk entitled, “‘Old Developers Just Don’t Get it.’ ‘Yes They Do.’ ‘No They Don’t.’,” Schipul will share his firsthand experience on working with and leading teams of developers over the years, including tips for tapping into the core things that motivate all people regardless of the generation to which they belong.

“Developers of different generations require a different approach to gather their input and secure their buy-in,” said Schipul, describing himself as a Gen-Xer and the “old guy” on his team. “Their wants, needs and expectations are different across generational lines, but at the same time they were all drawn to programming because they love to create. That passion is common ground that motivates developers no matter their age.” 

Schipul cites recent studies that show that startups prefer young inexperienced developers because of their cost and flexibility. This bias is not only discriminatory; it can be self-destructive by ignoring the benefits of a cross-generational workforce. For instance, according to a study released earlier this year, middle-aged developers are driving cloud computing, the biggest tech trend since the advent of tablets and the mobile Web.

“Of course, trends are built on generalizations sprinkled with kernels of truth. Knowing and understanding both elements helps draw the most from team participants,” Schipul said. “I’ll also share some amusing anecdotes I’ve accumulated along the way.”

OSCON, which runs July 22-26, focuses on bringing together business and the open source community. It is a community that is important to Schipul, which released Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the open source Content Management System (CMS) for nonprofit organizations. Tendenci CMS has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for nonprofit organizations and associations around the world.

Schipul’s talk will follow Ignite’s format of five-minute presentations using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds – known as “speed dating for ideas” by some. The presentation will be at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, July 22, at OSCON 2013, the 15th annual open source convention sponsored by O’Reilly Media. For more information and registration, visit http://www.oscon.com/oscon2013.

Houston Public Library Foundation Selects Tendenci® CMS Platform to Power New Website

Showcases support for the Houston Public Library through advocacy, fundraising

Tendenci Powers HPLF Nonprofit WebsiteHOUSTON, January 29, 2013 – The Houston Public Library Foundation (HPLF) has launched a dynamic website powered by Tendenci (www.tendenci.com), the open source Content Management System for nonprofit organizations (NPOs), which makes it easier than ever for Houstonians to support the Houston Public Library. The new website, www.houstonlibraryfoundation.org, was designed by Schipul - The Web Marketing Company (www.schipul.com), a leading Web marketing and software development company based in Houston.

HPLF is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on increasing the Houston community’s awareness of the vital role our Houston Public Library plays in its quality of life. Featuring large, colorful photographs that depict how HPLF supports the Houston Public Library through advocacy and fundraising, the new website uses Tendenci’s broad range of capabilities to promote upcoming events and sponsorship opportunities, recruit volunteers and encourage online donations. The organization also uses Tendenci’s integrated digital media management package to organize, collect and share photos of HPLF’s activities.

“Previously, our Web presence consisted of a single page on the Houston Public Library website, which didn’t provide the platform we needed to engage the community, encourage donations and showcase how we use funds to advance the Library’s mission,” said Maya Houston, executive director of HPLF. “The team at Schipul did a great job of visually capturing and presenting what the foundation is all about and Tendenci CMS makes it easy to add and edit content to keep the site fresh and lively.”

While the City of Houston supports the Library's basic expenses, such as salaries and materials, the Houston Public Library Foundation contributes significant funding for additional books and materials, programming, critical staff development and training, marketing and communications materials and minor refurbishment projects. Without the private funds raised by HPLF, many of the free programs the community relies upon, such as Summer Reading and resume writing classes, would not be possible.

Schipul has released Tendenci CMS as an open source product to give NPOs such as Houston Public Library Foundation greater control over their online presence. The Tendenci site automatically recognizes and accommodates mobile and tablet users by auto-resizing and formatting to the width and height of any device. Tendenci also allows administrators to manage online calendar events and registration for these events including reporting and e-mail notifications. It also features out-of-the-box search engine optimization and Web analytics integration to help maximize and track online visibility.

Tendenci CMS has more than 1 million users and currently powers hundreds of websites for nonprofit organizations and associations around the world, including Metropolitan New York Library Council (www.metro.org), Houston Technology Center (www.houstontech.org) and Komen Houston (www.komen-houston.org).
