下方清單是作為 CMF設計師 需要配備的軟體技能,按功能分組。看起來或許很多,但其實不需要精通所有的軟體,而且大多數同功能的軟體都大同小異、易於上手。

更重要的是,加入新團隊的時候,請與大家保持一致。比如,如果團隊使用Google Hangouts進行電話會議,即使您過往使用的事其他電話會議的方式,也應該切換到和團隊相同的軟體,才不會造成團隊合作上的困擾。

是否還有下方未列出的其他軟體呢?留言並分享使用經驗吧~

Below is a list of software needed to be equipped as a CMF Designer, grouped by functionality. It may seems a lot, but you don’t need to master in all of these software, as most software of the same functionality are similar and easy to catch-up.

More importantly, it is better to adapt to the software used by the team. For instance, if the team uses Google Hangouts for conference calls, you should switch to the same software even if you used to use another method for conference calls. The purpose is to avoid hiccups during team collaborations.

  1. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
