concrete5 will be used for all of the U.S. Army MWR web presence. The U.S. Army Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) program supports Soldiers, Families and the more than 3 million individuals associated with the U.S. Army. After years of organic efforts across more than 80 garrisons, the web presence for all of MWR will be standardized on concrete5, version 7.
Plucky open source CMS realizes awareness matters as much as features.

Today PortlandLabs announced Jessica Dunbar will join their team as Technology Evangelist. Jess brings more that 10 years of significant experience in the CMS space. PortlandLabs is the company behind concrete5, one of the world's most popular open source content management systems (CMS). Concrete5 is used for everything from government and educational websites to blogs and custom apps.
PortlandLabs seeks an individual who wants to teach the world about the power of concrete5.
We need you to spread the word about the many things that can be done with concrete5 by creating ongoing documentation, how-tos, screencasts, example sites, press releases, bylined articles, white papers, and more. You will also train site owners and developers and manage a certification program.
With over 183,668 downloads of 5.7 this year, its past time for us to get our act together on documentation, training and certification. Weve decided to dedicate each and every Wednesday to this effort until it is done. While we have a lot of writing to do, running training sessions online is a great way for us to produce helpful video content that is tailored to your needs.
Thus Im pleased to announce this new schedule of training classes you can sign-up for. Help us help you, and buy a class to get your answers straight from the horse's mouth!
This nice info-graph from CodeGuard puts concrete5 marketshare above ExpressionEngine's and just a bit over half of Drupal.
That's pretty awesome feeling! Thanks for all the help concrete5 community peeps, it's great to see our baby growing up so well.
Have a great weekend.
In launching 5.7 we've certainly rocked the boat. Between the dramatically rethought UX, the completely revamped code structure, and the lack of the simple upgrade path we've always maintained in the past, it's no secret we've taken a pretty big gamble with concrete5.
We're going to start having a twice a month virtual meeting to review what's next on our agenda in Git. This will also open our process up a bit so you can influence how the core matures.
- Face-to-face online - we'll use google hangouts, skype or something similar so it's not us talking at you, it's a two way discussion.
- First Wednesday of the month at 8:30 PM Pacific (great timing for our friends in Asia)
- Third Wednesday of the month at 9:30 AM Pacific (great timing for our friends in EU)
- Recorded and shared on youtube later.
- Likely has limited slots, so if you have a question and want to be part of the live aspect - fill out the form below to let us know you're attending.
