Workshop description: We all have the same concerns when introducing a new toolkit into our existing websites. Will I be able to tweak how it looks? How easy is it to use? Will it play well with other systems? Will it make my job easier? As both a developer on the University Web Toolkit and a user of the toolkit on our college sites, I’m here to answer these concerns. I’ll also have a list of sites and techniques you can use to help you figure out issues, reach out for help, and determine the best way forward for you.

Speaker bio: Bryan Jonker has been working at the College of Education since 2014 after working in the corporate world.
