Brief Overview of the BTI420 Programming Assignment

Here is the product statement:

MyWebCMS is a web content management system application. Each BTI420 student will create their own MyWebCMS app, to publish and maintain content that includes web pages, a blog, a wiki, a photo/media viewer, and social media assets.

.

A web content management system enables web site authoring, collaboration, administration, and publishing, through easy-to-use web-based tools. Viewers access the content with a standard web browser, and can do so anonymously, or after authentication. Many web content management systems are in worldwide use today. Two examples include WordPress, and Google Sites.

The term “web content management system” is often referred to with the “CMS” initialism (and sometimes the “WCMS” initialism).

MyWebCMS will be based on the ASP.NET 4 Web Forms technology.
