Magnolia for VPRO's Pinkpop Music Festival Website

We will talk about VPRO, one of the first (public) broadcasters in the Netherlands active on the internet, and our first adventures in Magnolia. VPRO created it's own open-source CMS back in 1994 and selected Magnolia as successor of that product, which was getting dated after 15 years. In this period we created a lot of content, a lot of which needs to be accessible after the migration. How are we looking at this problem?

In March 2010 we launched our first site in Magnolia, in May the second, with many more to come in the next 2 years.

Our philosophy is to get all our main sites on the same platform and try to develop applications for all of them simultaneously, so each site profits from developments on functionality. We think we will have about different 100 sites in Magnolia by end of next year, some big, some small.

During the talk I would like to zoom in to the festival site we released in may. VPRO is media partner for Pinkpop, the largest pop festival in the Netherlands. We created a 'mashup' site for this festival a couple of years ago and rebuild this using Magnolia, CouchDB and Camel. This technology is now available to our other sites on the Magnolia platform. Using one site to create new applications, which become available to other sites on our platform is something we like to do, this is a nice example.
