This weeks latest member to the Community Corner has to be one of the quickest submissions so far. I contacted Siân yesterday and before the day was out I had her answers and photo! Thanks Siân! You Rock! It's also great to welcome a Content Editor to the Community Corner!
Over the past week or so I've been trying to find the content editors and non-dev Umbraco Community members and with the help of Umbraco HQ and others, I'm starting to find them.
Please put your hands together and give a massive welcome to......
Siân Wynne Evans
Name: Siân Wynne Evans
Occupation / Where do you work: Website co-ordinator for Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council
Short introduction about you.
I’ve worked for my local Council for 26 years in several departments and job roles. I decided last year to move to a field of work which I had a passion for and I was appointed as website Co-ordinator in December 2017. When I’m not working I’m Gaming with my godson who shares my passion for it and trying to stop my Cat from beating up the local feline population
How did you first hear about Umbraco?
Through work. We use Umbraco for our main site, Intranet and sub-sites. I’ve used it as a Writer, Editor and now Content Editor/Administrator.
What are you currently doing with Umbraco?
Building forms, managing and maintaining content and re-structuring. I’m also working tinkering under the hood and looking at dashboards. Next on my hit list is Examine.
When I say 'Umbraco Community' what first comes to mind?
Guilty pleasure? (Food? Tech? Music?)
Caramel latte and Australian Masterchef
Name one person who inspires you? Dr Sue Black
Favourite website that you couldn't live without?
YouTube, so many dodgy videos to watch.
"Confession"? For example, confess your worst design (if it's a designer)
My spinning gif website back in 1996. It was a monstrosity.
"Own it"? What's the best project you ever got to work on?
Our council website. We’ve launched 18 system-integrated and 25 Umbraco forms since January 2018 and I can’t wait to really get stuck into working with the team I’m in on developing it and making it editor and writer friendly zone.
If you could ask Umbraco HQ one thing, what would it be? When can I buy an Umbraco mug?
Anything else you'd like to say?
I’d love to hear from Content Editors, writers and Editors. It’s time we tooted our horns!
