I am a developer who uses the SilverStripe CMS. I have over four years experience in everything from small websites to large multi-user internal system tools. I was originally drawn to SilverStripe in my web developer infancy because of its strong and intuitive templating system, and I've never looked back.

Maybe it's a question about how something works, what the best way to achieve something might be, or maybe how to troubleshoot a problem you're having with the system. Perhaps you just want to say "Hi" to the community. Whatever your reasons, SilverStripe has a variety of methods to enable you to contact people who are willing to offer you support.Read full post

Geeks love numbers, and colourful T-shirts. So this blog post is about both. Numbers help us to measure and compare. For our open source product, lots of curves are pointing upwards these days, which is fantastic news. And we'd like to reward the community for the significant increases we see in most of these numbers – but more on this later.Read full post
