State of INFOCOM August 2017

Greetings Marines,

I had a great time at IC this year, it was great seeing old friends and meeting some new ones.  My thanks to the organizers and staff of the IC, thanks for your efforts.

Now that the IC is behind us I will be making a decision on the Attention on Deck! /Attention on Deck Extra editor position soon.

As I mentioned at the International Muster, the new SFMC WordPress site it is up and running.  All the data from the old site is on the new site and all functions have been transferred.  We will be making improvements and adding new content to the site as we go along.

I have the new WordPress STARFLEET Marine Corps Academy site ready to deploy.  I plan to launch this new site in September sometime between the 16th-23rd.  I have some final testing to complete before then.  It has been suggested that the SFMCA go with a Moodle site like the SFI Academy has.  As I have the WordPress site ready, this will be the new platform for now.  If at some point TRACOM would like to start developing a new Moodle site I will give them all the assistance I can. The decision will be theirs to make.

After the SFMCA site has been deployed, I will start looking at a new Quarter Master site.  I’m not sure what platform I will use yet.  I will have to do some research and testing before making that decision.

As always if you have any questions, please let me know.  I’ll get back to
you as soon as I can.

In closing, here’s the pingdom stats for July 2017.
