Portland, OR (PRWEB) April 1, 2010
concrete5 is an open source content management system that powers over 35,000 websites – from tiny churches to major institutions and startups. Now the concrete CMS team has created a new appliance to deliver project success with even the most difficult client.
The process of using a Web Architecture Appliance (WAA) is nothing short of shocking. A base concrete5 install is setup on a webserver, and connected to a computer using the WAA via USB. The client simply lays one hand on the sensor on top, and starts describing their vision for the site in their own tone.
“Leveraging this level of synergy has been a dream of mine for ages,” says Lead Developer Ryan Tyler. “I’ve had clients who just couldn’t communicate in real terms at all. I can’t count the times I’ve heard ‘I’m not really sure - but you know what I’m talking about’ on a fixed budget. Well I don’t, but now I can hook them up to the WAA and problem solved. It’s amazing.”
Andrew Embler, CTO explains “hardware is not easy, and certainly inferring what someone actually needs when the direction is ‘it needs more buttons’ is no small challenge either. That’s why we knew we had to do this. ”
