Next week, I’ll be moderating a panel on Open Source Content Management at the fifth annual Gilbane Boston Conference – “Where Content Management Meets Social Media.”
It’s Thursday, December 4th, from 3:30-5:00pm. The panelists will be:
- Nate Aune of Jazkarta (Plone / Zope / Python)
- Elie Auvray of Jahia
- Michael Wechner of Wyona (Lenya, Yanel, Yulup)
Here’s the description from the official program:
There are many open source content management solutions available today, reflecting a wide variety of capabilities and costs, and organizations of all types are more willing than ever to consider them in place of, or along side commercial CMSs. This session will look at some of the pros and cons of deploying open source content management systems in terms of licensing, costs, maintenance, and functionality to help you determine if they are an appropriate option for your organization.
In addition to all of that, I also hope we’ll talk about how the adoption landscape is or isn’t changing for open source in the CMS space, innovation and standards compliance in open source CMS, and how open source projects can make user adoption easier or more effective.
What questions would you like to ask this group of speakers? How do you see the landscape changing for open source projects in the content management space?
