I want to wellcome all of you and start of with the introduction.
My name is Martin and I'm a webdesigner and developer from the Netherlands. I bought Oxygen in 2019 because I was looking for a new tool to create websites. I didn't use it for many months and finally got around to play with it. Now I am rather hooked :-).
Feel free to ask questions if you have any.
My turn :-).
Hi, I'm John, 33 years old and I am from California although not originally. My journey with Oxygen is recent but as Martin, I love it and have created my site with it. I'm rather new to webdesign but enjoy learning more about it.
I'm Roland and as you might be able to tell a huge Dark Tower fan (the name and the avatar might be a dead giveaway). I am a freelancer and have converted my sites to Oxygen and only use Oxygen for any new sites I create.
I find that I can do a lot more detailed work when using Oxygen and am not limited like I was when I used a theme for my work.
Hi I'm joey and been using genesis for many years, but change is needed due to certain situations, long story. I am brand brand new-bee to oxygen, lol. joining in so i can to try to do my part in contributing to the community.
Hello all, my name is Hans and I'm from Berlin in Germany. I am new to Oxygen coming from Avada. I still work with Avada but I want to increase my use of Oxygen. I did create some sites with Oxygen but I am still struggling a bit.
@Ronald I am also a big dark tower fan. It's a great series although I never liked the first one.
I'm Silke and from Hamburg / Germany. I have been running some own websites since 2004.
I came to Wordpress in 2017 and came across the boundaries of Themes and Basic Elementor to Oxygen Builder in 2020. Even without being an expert in coding, I am enthusiastic about Oxygen and it has given me a lot of freedom for my ideas.
This is Kimmo from Helsinki. Very beginner really with Oxygen 3.7... it's quite different!
@kimmok hi and welcome to our little corner of the universe :-). I am also still relatively new to Oxygen but it's great. It has a bit of a learning curve though :-D.
But once you start working with it, you'll soon get the hang of it.
I am 62 and I work in the Manchester area. I have been involved with programming , system building, development , training , consultancy etc. since I was 24 and I started creating websites a number of years ago when i was introduced to Drupal 7. I have to say that I was aware of Wordpress but I used to think it was not very good so I kind of shied away from it but then someone asked me if I could modify their website and it was Wordpress and it made use of something called Elementor page builder and I have to say from that time to now I have really enjoyed creating fairly simple but reasonably functional websites or information portals ( as I call them ).
I create websites as a kind of hobby but more recently I have been approached to create one or two professional websites. I have a full blown Oxygen license and I was an early adaptor of Oxygen, I also have OxyNinja which I have used to create some of the more fundamental blocks. I develop locally using Flywheel and once finished I deploy first to a test site and then onto some form of defined URL when approved.
I try to chip in with the Official Oxy FB group and I have seen most of the Oxygen related videos ( and now there are many ).
@hbuckley hi and welcome!
I never tried Drupal but did create a website with Joomla once. What a nightmare was that! Have you ever tried Joomla? If so how does it compare to Drupal? I'm just curious, because I am not moving away from WP :-).
Anyway, as said, welcome and enjoy the party :-).
I came here from the Facebook group. Not a techie, but always learning a bit each day about Oxygen and building a website
@michaelahanti also welcome from me. I've been away for a while so a bit late :-).
