Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 11, 2010
concrete5 CMS has gained popularity quickly for having a very intuitive basic editing experience compared to many content management systems. As with any powerful application, there's a lot of different ways to solve more complicated challenges. Now the core team behind concrete5 has launched a dozen training courses to share their know-how.
"This is way past due," declares CEO Franz Maruna. "Many open source projects offer training & certification from day one and it is an important part of their project's growth and profitability. We've basically been offering this training all along, but only per request as a consulting gig. Now we've taken the time to standardize what we've been putting into those meetings and we are eager to start training a lot more people quickly."
Classes are conducted online and are a manageable 3 hours of instruction and Q&A. Students don't need to take a week off and travel across the world to gain some expertise. There are courses to help site managers get the most out of the CMS's editing experience, as well as in-depth classes for developers to help them approach problems in the best way.
CTO Andrew Embler says "It has been a real pleasure coming up with this curriculum. I know there are many organizations that would really benefit from using concrete5 in their environment, but the lack of formal training has been a road block. Now that we're offering these classes I see a lot more potential for concrete5 to take off in enterprise environments."
