Last fall we designed and built a site for one of our city's best-loved sporting events-- Portland's 34th annual Shamrock Run. We thought it would be interesting (and fun!) to make a video about the process and how the Core Team uses concrete5 to quickly build a site from design to produciton with just a handful of folks and a tight turnaround.Check out the finished site here:shamrockrunportland.com

Also check out this sweet timelapse video of the event.


This week we check out karma winners (2:55), check out helpful forum threads (6:15), check in with Greg to see what's happening in the marketplace (17:45), and answer your questions in "How Would We Do That?" (21:50). Finally, we check out a git pull request that aims to improve the autonav block (28:50).



This week we share screenshots from our upcoming workflow features (2:05), check out karma winners (12:30), look at some enlightening forum threads (15:30) and fresh PRB submissions (28:05), then discuss work on Bootstrap 2.0 integration (23:45). As always, we wrap things up with How Would We Do That? (36:50)
