Who we are

Web Communication Technologies, affectionately referred to as WebTech, is a team of skilled web developers that provide tools to the entire Western community for them to maintain a successful presence on the web. Whether you run a single webpage within a site or manage an entire college, WebTech is your resource for making the site work the way you want for your students and staff.

Contributing back the work we do is important to WebTech so that others may benefit from the time and energy put into solutions. Our most prominent work is within the Drupal project. Additionally, Able Player and Ashlar are two significant efforts we support in addition to improving the general Drupal software.
