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. 

Last Thursday CMS Map


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...

"Your CMS Report was helpful indeed, both in giving an overview of the market, but also as a means to increase our professional level in dealing with the selection and purchase process. This goes for me personally as well, as it helped me structure the process, ask the right questions, and focus on the important issues. We had a successful project!"

I sometimes refer to Episerver in shorthand as "a poor man's Sitecore," but as you'll see below, that's a real over-simplification...

There is no marketplace here, because no enterprise digital leader in her right mind would actually purchase "digital experience" as a platform....
