The Brown’s Lake Aquaducks is a water ski team located in Burlington, WI. I joined in 1998 and I have been on the team ever since. As I grew up and I got more and more into computers, I started helping the team a lot with running the audio equipment for the show and also helping out with the website. We used to use NetObjects Fusion. It was pretty much a 100% WYSIWYG software. After that, I programmed the site myself using straight up HTML and CSS but the management was way too difficult. So instead, I looked online and found WordPress. I looked at all the other CMS solutions that were free, but I hated the user experience that they provided. When I started working with WordPress, I fell in love. It was such a great software that installed itself and it worked great for what I needed to do. No more using FTP! All of my management was done from a Microsoft Word-like editor. It was something simple that I could use and if I needed to dive into some advanced coding, it was a click of a button and I was back to programming from scratch. All in all, it was great for me to use and it was perfect if anyone else needed to take over the website.
