MODX is headed to CMS Expo Learning & Business Conference in Chicago as a Spotlight CMS in just under 4 weeks and there's still time for you to get tickets—especially if you're in the US. We've already heard from a number of MODXers that are headed there including: Mark Hamstra (yes, he works here now), Lee Brinckley, Ben Davis and several others.

Panels and Presentations

We're going to be busy meeting folks at our booth, talking to other CMS industry leaders and extolling the joy of creative freedom. Our Leader of Awesomeness, Ryan, will be participating in a number of key panels and sharing the story and benefits of MODX alongside representatives from other top and up-and-coming CMS solutions.

Day 1—Tuesday, May 8

Ryan will start his official participation at CMS Expo's opening event: the Founders Panel where the founders and leaders from well-established and up-and-coming CMS solutions will discuss challenges, ideas and innovation in Content Management. Later in the day, MODX goes to "the Expo Corral" for the CMS Shootout. Moderated by Analyst and Consultant, Scott Liewehr, Ryan will show start-ups, small and middle-tier fast-growth companies how MODX can set them on the path to content success now and in the future.

On his last panel of the day, Ryan will be sharing the message of creative freedom with Web Design studios and Development firms in the CMS Review. We all love the freedom and flexibility that MODX offers for delivering uncompromising designs and powerful, feature-rich websites. Ryan will discuss and demonstrate this freedom and collaboration without collision to an audience of designers and developers.

Our friend, Lee Brinckley, MODX community member and Web Development Manager at Washington, DC creative agency, LeapFrog Solutions, shares his experience in costing and delivering projects in MODX on the Killer Project Management panel.

Day 2—Wednesday, May 9

Ryan will be presenting the first 2 of 3 MODX-focused sessions. First, No Limits Design with MODX which will include a demo and some real world examples. Then, Ryan will join SoftLayer CTO, Duke Skarda, to discuss the convergence of CMS and hosting as we approach the upcoming launch of MODX Cloud

Day 3—Thursday, May 10

Ryan will be presenting MODX: Flexible, Fast, and Form-Fits Every Curve of Your Business where he'll discuss and demonstrate how MODX can be shaped to fit the needs of the project and will grow right along with business.
