Presenting ContentBox at the NVCFUG (Virginia)

Posted by Luis Majano
Jul 31, 2014 17:16:00 UTC

This August 13th, 2014 at 7pm I will be presenting on ContentBox Modular CMS at the North Virginia ColdFusion User Group.  So if you are in the vicinity, drop by for some food, drinks, goodies and some knowledge on ContentBox Modular CMS!  We will also transmit it via Connect:

You can find much more information in the User Group page:  See you there!

ContentBox is an open source modular content application written in CFML that will provide you with blogs, cms, wiki and more. Built on the solid ColdBox Platform and ColdFusion ORM foundations, ContentBox can be extended using modular architecture instead of conforming to a standard application API. Based fully on conventions, event-driven programming and ColdBox modules, your content can scale and customizations now become trivial. Extend and scale based on industry standards and think outside of the box!

It was about time I started to eat my own dog food, so I have completed the migration from Wordpress to ContentBox today and with that a new inspiration to write more.  So expect a lot more content coming your way now that I have ContentBox up and running.  Also, thanks to this migration we have updated the Wordpress importer of ContentBox and it will be available by next week.
