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.

It's a great way to learn from your peers in a laid-back environment, so come join the fun & conversation. 

Our customers say...

"This excellent research has saved weeks of work reviewing the marketplace to enable a tender to be sent out to just a handful of potential vendors in record time. Well done."
