• Welcome to the Future

    The new Symphony website is here. Ready to be unboxed and taken for a spin. But before you lose yourself in the depths of its labyrinthine awesomeness, take a moment to read about how it got here, what it has to offer, and what you can do to help whip it into fighting shape.

  • The future, part III

    So here are the final two teaser screenshots of the new site. I can't tell you how excited we are are: the site goes live on the 30th, two days after my 30th... the perfect present :)

  • The future, part II

    As promised, here are a couple of additional screenshots of the new site to whet your appetite. I'm posting them without commentary - Craig is far better placed to introduced the site and will be discussing its concepts in detail post launch.

  • The future

    It's been a while since a blog was posted here... a lot is going on and an explanation of what we've been up to and what we are planning is long overdue. So here goes.

  • Nominate Symphony for Packt's Open Source CMS Awards

    Think your beloved Symphony deserves more recognition? Well, it's on the list of nominees for Packt Publishing's 2009 Open Source CMS Awards. Scratch that itch by nominating Symphony for the Overall Open Source CMS Award and the Best PHP CMS Award. And don't forget to spread the word far and wide... it's a numbers game at this stage: "The five open source Content Management Systems with the most nominations will go through to the final in each category."

  • The Shell Extension: Seeing How Far The Rabbit-Hole Goes

    So, some of you would have noticed the Symphony Shell Extension appear today. We're really excited about this as it will open the door to a whole new area of Symphony development. Writing for the command line.

  • Introducing Commercial Labs

    Last week on our developer podcast, Alistair and I spoke about taking Symphony into the next phase. We mentioned that the system has gone through a five year live-cycle and has been put through its paces on large-scale, high load websites and has come out better, stronger and awesomer with each iteration. The community has also grown with us over the years -- in a linear and non-server crashing rate -- now able to co-develop Symphony alongside the core team. And now we want to take that next logical step: thinking business.

    We start our journey with Symphony compatible hosts.

  • We're hiring - join the Symphony team!

    Update: Anyone who tried to send us an application recently, can you please resend them. Apologies for the fail. -- Allen

    Hot on the heels of Craig coming on board, we're now looking for a junior>mid weight developer to join us as a full time member of our support team. It's a real job; we'll give you money for it.
