Spaulding For Children Adoption Center Moves to Tendenci

New Website to Highlight Adoption Services for Adoptive Children and their Families

spaudlingforchildren-tendenci.pngHOUSTON, May 31, 2015 –Tendenci  (www.tendenci.com), the software development company spearheading the Tendenci Open Source platform for associations and other nonprofits (NPOs), is proud to release a dynamic new website for Spaulding for Children. The website, https://www.spauldingforchildren.org, is powered by Tendenci Open Source, which ensures that the organization's online presence continues to find loving homes for hard-to-place children.

Tendenci Open Source was released as an open source solution for associations and non-profits to give cause-related organizations greater freedom and control over their online presence.

Spaulding for Children works with families that are seeking to adopt children that historically have a difficult time finding a home - those from broken homes, looking to be adopted with their siblings, or children with disabilities. Families that open their hearts and their homes to these children are unique and individually selected for the calling.

Spaulding for Children encourages frequent return visits to the website by constantly updating content using Tendenci’s CMS. It is easy to add photos and video, create new pages, update and organize website content, and post news and articles. 

To meet the needs of potential adoptive families, the agency uses Tendenci’s integrated event calendar to schedule informational meetings and custom forms that allow for self-reflection prior to embarking on this life-changing decision. With the online Donations module, the agency can engage passionate individuals and immediately secure funds using either a one-time or recurring donations option.

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.
