The OSTraining Podcast #22: Andrew Embler and Concrete5

Andrew is the founder and CTO of Concrete5, an open source CMS that’s comparable to WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and others.

Concrete5 has been around for over a decade and has introduced some innovations that other projects still haven’t managed to equal. For example, for a long time now, Concrete5 users have been able to click on any part of the site to edit items, right there on the page.

I talk with Andrew about what it’s like to run a large project for many years. He describes the ups-and-downs, including a major release that broke backwards compatability and frustrated some community members. Andrew also talks how he found a second wind, 10 years into building his project!

Follow Andrew on Twitter at @aembler and via the Concrete5 at Concrete5.org.
