At the 2013 CMS Expo Learning & Business Conference I have the privilege of moderating a panel focused on the Cloud. That's actually a broad topic, but I think it's a topic that is increasingly becoming well understood by the CMS community. Last year, I moderated a similar panel and, in my opinion, we spent way too much time trying to define the Cloud. This year, I'm hoping we're past the "what is it" phase and spend much more time talking about real problems, real benefits, and the challenges the content management industry may be facing by moving toward a Cloud solution.
The calendar is moving fast toward one of my favorite content management focused conferences, the 2013 CMS Expo which is hosted in Evanston, Illinois (near Chicago). This year, the conference will be held on the 14th, 15th, and 16th of May once again at the Hilton Orrington Hotel. Learning & Business Conference. This event is billed as a "Learning & Business" conference showcasing some of the world's leading content management systems and the people who power them. Whether the CMS you favor is proprietary or open source, focused on small business or enterprise, non-profit, government or commercial applications, there’s something for everyone at CMS Expo.

Despite all the technology related companies in the Sioux Falls region, the one thing we've been missing is a great conference that really puts this city on everyone's map. That is why, thanks in parts to the effort of Blend Interactive, I'm expecting the Now What? Conference 2013 to be one of the most significant content related conferences I'll be attending this year. If your profession depends on web content and you know where Sioux Falls then I sincerely recommend you register for this event today. If by chance you miss the low early bird price, I wouldn't fret too much because even the standard price to attend is quite reasonable due to the high caliber of speakers that will be attending this conference.
