(First off, I apologize for the really long question, but any help I can get would be appreciated!)
Hello! I am taking over a bunch of sites that a developer had created for a company (I am not a developer, but I have some coding knowledge and wordpress experience). Anyway, I want to switch over the site from just php and sql to a CMS and I feel like Craft might be the one. However, I feel like it might just be over my head.
Basically the cms needs to manage an event (or if 1 instance of Craft can handle multiple events, each with its own website, even better!) Each event visits up to 40 cities a year and has up to 3500 attendees at each one. And all information regarding attendees, venue, host hotel, faculty, schedule, etc. is all stored in a data base. And all that information is displayed on the site on pages that are created dynamically by the cities name, year, etc..
My question is: How would I transfer all of that into Craft and organize it appropriately? And would this be possible for someone with limited knowledge of coding?
I am willing to do all the research necessary, or if its way out of my league, hire a developer to do it for me. I just need a nudge in the right direction.
Thanks for your time! -Alex
