Open Source CMS Award

By Deane Barker on August 10, 2009

Open Source CMS Award:Packt is launching their annual open-source CMS contest.  This year, I’m a judge in the “Overall” category, but with Drupal and Joomla moved to the “Hall of Fame” and not eligible in the category,  it’s anyone’s game.

The 2009 Open Source CMS Award nominations have begun. Nominate your favorite CMS for the appropriate categories today and help them win their share of $24,000! If you’ve benefited from an open source CMS and would like to give something back to the team that made it happen, now is the time!

Judging this is, for me, a little grueling.  Every year, I download, install, and try out every single candidate system.



  1. I can’t believe that Joomla is in the hall of fame – that’s almost blasphemy – I mean seriously. The administration makes no sense to the business running it, the modules developed for it are less than secure (hello phishing attacks), and load/execution time is like having my great-grandmother (with arthritic hands) knit, it’s extremely painful. Other than that Joomla is awesome :|
