Stackbox: Next-Generation Content Management

Stackbox is an ambitious new open source, BSD-licensed content management system aimed to end the "backend" editing paradigm for good. All content editing is done directly in-place and on-page through drag-and-drop JavaScript and AJAX methods. Page content is template-driven with regions defined by CSS classes. Content modules are dropped into regions and sorted live by the user.

The page model in WordPress, Drupal, and most other common CMSes are deeply flawed. Learn the reasons why the Stackbox approach is best and the thinking process that led up to the architecture decisions in Stackbox. Presentation will be followed by a demo, feature overview, and short Q&A.
