    This event was just what I had hoped. In the past I always felt my (limited) pool of developers determined which CMS I used. The knowledge gained will help put me in the drivers seat.

    Jason did a great job! He presented the various CMS options clearly, concisely and with lots of demos. Digital Bootcamp was a great venue. Thanks to everyone who attended.

    Thanks for coming to the meetup folks. I know we covered a lot of ground at a high level. If you want to dive deeper into the details on anything, give me a shout and we can setup a meeting or another meetup.

    Pros: Jason did a great overview of 5 CMSs and the pros and cons of managing each. He facilitated discussions on CMS applications and future opportunities.

    Cons: Unrealistic but would have been great to get a hands on chance to play with each of the CMSs.

    Good speaker. He gave the basics about the topic and answered questions. Only complaint is that the venue had some very loud people downstairs that were distracting. And people at the meetup were a little rude (leaving early, leaving cell phones on).

    Good general overview of CMS, wish there would have been more time to dive into specifics.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
