We picked up a trophy for you last night, so feel free to come into our office to touch it. The New Zealand Open Source Awards were held in Wellington, and the SilverStripe CMS won NZ Open Source Project.
Accepting on behalf of everyone who's worked on SilverStripe CMS, Brian Calhoun has this to say about the win: "This award is all about our amazing open source community. Not just our community of individual developers, but our community of partner and developer network companies spread throughout the planet. We have over 160 companies out there right now (and those are just the ones we know about) developing solutions for their clients on the SilverStripe open source platform. And they're doing more than building commercial sites. They're contributing back to the open source product which benefits everyone. We're extremely honoured to win this award and accept it on behalf of our community."Read full post
