  • Quoting IT: When an Open Source Community Faces Growing Pains

    Quoting IT: When an Open Source Community Faces Growing Pains

    "There's no right way to do it, but there are wrong ways, trust me, I know, I've done them all. Doing it wrong can harm people and it can really hurt the community. What you all have built together is remarkable and it's worth considering how you extend it further and find ways to continue to collaborate, both as Drupal, and maybe even more importantly as a broader PHP community."

    - Amy Stephen, Molajo Developer and Consultant, Comment to "Backdrop: Forking Drupal" by Laura Scott, Pingv.com, September 11, 2013

  • CEO Corner: CMS Build or Buy–Where’s the Respect?

    I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. The custom CMS discussion has reared it’s ugly head a few times this year. Ron Miller asked his Fierce audience “why would companies still be building a custom CMS” as recently as this past February, which also spawned a discussion on CMS Connected the same month. For us, this is the third time this year we've come up against this most ethereal of competitors. The first was in a pitch in March with a local ad agency who insists that a custom CMS is the most efficient way to go. That was followed by an ongoing discussion with one of our long-time customers about whether they would renew this year in the wake of building an internal development team.

  • Search for Georgia: how an open source CMS is helping press freedom

    Search for Georgia: how an open source CMS is helping press freedom

    The country of Georgia has not traditionally been an easy place to make news. Yet, despite being ranked only 105th of 179 countries in the latest World Press Freedom Index (compiled by Reporters Without Borders), a interesting group of media organizations are helping to build an open source CMS that they hope could change the dominance of traditional, government-approved media and shift power to more agile, innovative news start-ups.

  • In 20 Minutes: What I know about Joomla!

    In 20 Minutes: What I know about Joomla!

    Recently, the fine folks at CMS-Connected gave me the opportunity to become a periodic guest for the CMS in the Spotlight segment of their show. CMS-Connected is an hour-long monthly news webcast that focuses on the content management industry. For the January show we had Joomla! in the spotlight, but once we went live I soon found myself challenged to adequately cover the CMS given short period of time and format. So the video below contains additional comments I have about Joomla!, Joomla 3.0, open source, people, and the business side of Joomla!

  • Quoting IT: Mullenweg on the Power of Developers

    "If you’re a developer you’re already five steps ahead of everyone else. Scripting is the new literacy, and the ability to learn and execute on your ideas without relying on anybody else is going to be invaluable as you iterate and experiment on building something." -Matt Mullenweg, The future of WordPress: Q&A with founder Matt Mullenweg, memeburn.com, July 8, 2011.

  • Becoming a Highly Successful CMS Developer

    Any developer who has worked on building a CMS driven web site has experienced the complexities involved in a website deployment. On the Ektron Blog Hub, Bill Cava makes the case that the ultimate success of a website isn't something that can be verified by a developer during development by asking, "how many developers are even aware of what the desired business outcomes for a website are -- let alone measure, verify, and optimize them during development, quality assurance, and usability…

  • New SilverStripe book expected in August 2009

    Earlier this year, SilverStripe core developer Ingo Schommer and German tech-writer Steven Broschart wrote a magnificent book for SilverStripe CMS developers.  When the book was released, SilverStripe's Sigurd Magnusson stated that this book "provides a more structured and comprehensive set of SilverStripe technical documentation than what is currently available at doc.silverstripe.com".  But there is one tiny problem with the book.  If your only language is English then you likely will have…

  • Drupal's Earl Miles on Lullabot Podcast

    Jeff Robbins from Lullabot recently interviewed Drupal developer Earl "MerlinofChaos" Miles for an audio podcast. Earl Miles is the lead developer for some of the more popular contributed modules found at Drupal.org. The podcast focuses on his Drupal module work which includes Views, Panels, and Node Queue. Jeff Robbins also managed to ask some non-Drupal questions in the 88 minute recording that I found just as fascinating. Personally, I always enjoy opportunities to get to know more about…

  • SilverStripe: Google Contest ends, Winners to be chosen

    The Google Highly Open Participation Contest ended after a hive of stunning work over two months. SilverStripe begun with 60 tasks, and because students get paid for each successfully completed task, SilverStripe had to seek numerous times for Google to increase the funding to enlarge the contest based on unanticipated student demand. In the end, about 180 tasks were completed, three times the initial expectation. The contest took the number of SilverStripe themes from two to several dozen,…
