  • How we got started

    Can’t install pM Pro 1.0 anymore because it requires php3.
  • The hype was all about blogs, but the innovators build websites faster, more efficiently, and competed at new levels.

    My story as business case because it describes a large number of our community
  • Pushing Boundaries
    This is what our community does; guides development
    Community went beyond blogging quickly
    Led directly to ExpressionEngine
    Stats on improvements, features, implemented feature requests
    Setting the stage for 2.0
  • Talk about the success of the last 3-4 years
  • Majority of EE sites use only the default features.

    But the core community expands what’s possible everyday.

  • Embraced by the well known.
    Used by everybody.
    Affordable.

    Commercial, but embraces open source. CI is open source, leveraging jQuery

    Best of both worlds, brought together.
  • Talk about the specific goals of 2.0.

    Control specifically in:
    Installation
    Templates
    Presentation
  • Pitch DA’s presentation on feature development, EE 2 new feature demo

    Leopard to Snow Leopard
  • Around 55% of all new customers in 2009 were by freelancers. At least that’s what the survey indicates.
