Episode 3: decision time on our CMS (content management system)
In this special episode we talk strategically and ethically about the CMS solutions we offer our clients. We shortly have a big decision to make as we discuss the pros and cons of our long term in-house CMS (SproutCMS) versus the many good 3rd party and open source systems available, including Wordpress, Craft CMS, Expression Engine, Concrete 5 and Silver Stripe. Topics include Why are we having this discussion? Why did we build our own CMS in the first place? Is our position defendable in this day and age? Do we throw out a very mature and trusted code base and just turn to a mature open source or licensed product? Do we fork a new version and make it open source given how much work is in the code base? Note that this is in no way a review of these 3rd party CMS offerings, rather it is a discussion of how they might fit within Karmabunny's client offerings in comparison with our existing in-house CMS.Articles referenced in this podcast:Why Use a Custom Content Management System (CMS)Never Fall for a Custom CMS.
