Before I start talking about the awesome software Saltmedia uses to power our websites I wanted to give you a bit of knowledge about website software in general. A CMS (Content Management System) is a software application that allows non-programmers to manage and maintain websites with a minimal amount of technical website development knowledge.
Saltmedia believes in Open Source software. Sometimes this option is overlooked - I’ll save my opinion on closed software for a different blog entry though. In general open source is a software licensing model that allows unrestricted access to use, modify, distribute, and improve software. Why pay to reinvent the wheel (or license it) when you can leverage the community-driven wealth of combined experience of millions of developers around the world?
