This version will not upgrade cleanly over previous betas, but you should test upgrades over 5.7.5.9.


We’re often asked what the core team uses as our development stack. We tend to lean towards BYOD strategies. As long as a craftsman is using good tools and loving them, who are we to tell them what is better? That said, one of several apps that is universally loved at PortlandLabs for working on concrete5 is PHPStorm.


We had such fun at the London one, we're going to do it again in Munich.

Wednesday November 9th in München, Deutschland!

I had the pleasure of meeting 30 some people at a meetup thrown in our honor and sponsored by JBX last week in London.


(With your mind, not your heart.)


I went to PNWPHP again this year and again I was struck by how open and welcoming everyone was. I ended up leaving with a sense of inspiration and community. I truly feel like I’ve met some lifelong friends. Feelings isn’t the only thing I got, there were incredible talks about all kinds of interesting things. Some I knew a little bit about, others completely new to me.

You’ve heard us talk about it, and it’s still bumpy in parts, but we’re eager to hear your feedback as you tinker around with Express in version 8 of concrete5.


If you live in Europe, I’d love to meet and say “Hi” this fall. It’s wonderful to learn what people have built with concrete5.
