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.
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.
Exciting times at concrete5 are here again!
We want you to be successful with concrete5
It is our pleasure to introduce a new training "Advanced Theme Building." It's focused on developing a custom themes. The first class is July 28th and you don’t want to miss out!
I’ll be attending and speaking at the Social Tech Live Conference in July. The main conference is going to be at Florida International University, Miami, Florida July 16th - 17th, 2016.
Two weeks ago we explained how concrete5's versioning works. This week we are giving you an overview of all of our versioning including development versions.
Become familiar with the new features in version 8 and be a pillar of the community. Getting involved is easy. We want your help with testing, coding, and exploring the potential of version 8!
Ready to get started?
My dad used to tell a story of his brilliant lead programmer, Larry. He had gone dark for weeks to write the logic for some important calculation that was critical to the key project. Dad had to show progress. Lots of money had been spent and the client needed to see the magic happen. Larry declared himself "Done!" and sat my Dad down for a demo.
We’ve got huge plans and big expectations for version 8, and you need to know all about them.
In order for everyone to understand and follow Semantic Versioning 2.0 we are going to remove the leading 5 from our versioning. The next major version of concrete5 is going to be Version 8.0.0.
With the features that exist even in legacy version 6, plenty of proud site owners have built powerful private websites to help their organization communicate internally. Version 8 is right around the corner and includes a way to easily manage structured centralized content (Express). We’ve already got most of the parts, so we’re putting some love into revisiting the My Account area to enable team collaboration. As I mentioned at the start of the year, it is concrete5’s time to graduate from WCM to ECM.
