An Ode to Last Thursday CMS

  • 27-May-2010

Every time the last Thursday of the month rolls around, I'm reminded of the fun and interesting crowd that gathers at the Hoxton Hotel in London for the Last Thursday CMS social events. 

After a long day talking tech, especially when I'm away from home, I like to be social - and LastThursdayCMS fits the bill. London's Last Thursday CMS, which has since spawned "sister" groups in New York City, Amsterdam, Paris, Boston and San Francisco, is one such group where I've enjoyed meeting many similarly-career'd gents and ladies (though mostly gents), and enjoyed conversations that spanned from Magnolia CMS to magnolia flowers, and Magnolia the movie.

This photo of our vendor subway map (or tube map as we call it in London) was taken at last month's London gathering. You can follow the future action on Twitter under the hashtag #LastThursdayCMS. It's a great way to learn from your peers in a laid-back environment, so come join the fun & conversation. 

Our customers say...

"The Web CMS Research was the roadmap for our entire CMS selection process. It truly provided a basis for understanding what we should look for and expect in a CMS. Above all, since we used the report as our guide, we are more than confident in our CMS selection. If we had to go through the process all over again, we'd still rely as heavily on this report as we did the first time."
