ContentBox at the Houston User Group

Just a quick note that we will be showcasing ContentBox, our modular content platform for ColdFusion, at the Houston User Group next week.  So if you will be close by, please drop by as we will have a hands on workshop on how to install ContentBox and get it up and running.

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:  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. 

Hopefully, we will have an open beta soon!
