Goodbye RedDotCMSBlog, it’s been great! This blog is shutting down.


Hi all,
I wanted to give everyone a heads up that the blog / domain is going down in the next 1-12 months.

I’ve been paying the hosting of around 70 Euro per year without any revenue or other income from it for the last 10+ years and that money is slowly stacking up to over a grand.

If anyone is interested in taking the thing off my hands or make a charitable donation, please let me know, otherwise I will shut it down.

It’s been an amazing journey to work with so many people on a CMS that once was truly a leader in the field before it became forgotten as a result of one or two too many mergers and acquisitions.

I truly enjoyed meeting, learning and collaborating with every single one of you, a big special mention goes to Frederic Hemberger who was the most active contributor in so many ways. Thanks Fred and thanks to everyone else who contributed, you know who you are.

For me this blog was an early collaboration attempt at bringing an open source mindset to the enterprise world of propriety software. It’s been fun to make the tool overall better, find like minded souls and eventually it led me to move to Australia, which I now call my home.

Feel free to share you RedDot memory below or get in touch via reddotcmsblogbyebye@markusgiesen.com :)

All the Best,
Markus
