To start our 2012 ColdBox Connection schedule right, we will be showcasing a first look at ContentBox this Thursday January 19th, 2012 at our usual time: 10AM Pacific Standard Time in our usual channel: http://experts.adobeconnect.com/coldbox-connection/

The ColdBox Connection is a bi-weekly free webinar that features the ColdBox Team and of course ColdBox related seminars. Not only do we showcase features about ColdBox but we are also available to answer any of your questions directly on the show. This is a great opportunity to ask anything you like to the ColdBox team and also give feedback on the direction of the platform. Curious about ColdBox, WireBox, CacheBox, LogBox or MockBox? Need urgent help on a topic? Want to hang out with some cool cats? 

For those of you who do not know what ContentBox is, here is a little insight. ContentBox is our next major project here at Ortus Solutions, which is a highly modular content platform based on ColdBox architecture and modules. It is a set of ColdBox modules that work in unison to provide you with blog, cms and development capabilities. It is still in private alpha, but you can be part of it if you like by just requesting it: contentbox@ortussolutions.com. The major difference than traditional blogs or cms, is that ContentBox is highly extensible via ColdBox features and event driven programming. You can easily extend it and create other modules that function outside of ContentBox with their own DI, caching, SES, or extend the content as well.
