Abstract

Using open source tools for website development provides users with a free, collaborative alternative for website design. This project used the following open source tools to create a website for a consulting business: Wordpress, GIMP and OpenOffice. The process included using GIMP to manipulate a logo and images to enhance the purpose of the website, creating website content using OpenOffice, and making changes to and fitting the content within a Wordpress template. The result is a visually-enhanced, functional website appropriate for the consulting business.
