Announcing Geek Moot 2009

Post by Ted »

Reposted from: ... moot-2009/
The developers of CMS Made Simple have finalized plans for the yearly developer conference. However, there is one major change... we're inviting you to join us.

On 26-27 September, CMSMS will host the first public Geek Moot event at The Showroom in Sheffield, UK. There will be plenty of presentations by the devs and others, events, networking and just general geeking out. There are plans for evening events in the works and they will be announced soon.

Come spend the weekend with the CMSMS devs and other people just like you for a weekend of fun with the system you love.

For more details on the event, see


We are looking for people to do talks and presentations on CMSMS related topics.  If you'd like to do a presentation (and promote yourself as a CMSMS know-it-all or your company), please contact us here.  Proposals are due by 1st July.


We are also looking for sponsors.  There are details about what sponsorship could provide here.  We would love to get several sponsors if possible.

Donation Drive

We will also do our yearly donation drive in a month or so.  The money for this will go to paying for several devs to travel to the conference, as they normally wouldn't be able to.  We'll announce that when we're prepared to handle the influx of funds -- and figure out who needs them.


We hope to see you in September!

It's a pity. In UK the uniform Schengen visa is not valid :(

Feature Requests

At the Geek Moot, which I will be unable to attend, I hope that the dev team will consider adding the following two items to the CMSMS Core:

1. OpenID Support for backend login

2. Pingback/Trackback

Ted has already tried several OpenID frameworks in CMSms v2.x.
