Packt can exclusively reveal the second category winner of the Open Source Content Management System Award as mojoPortal, winning Best Other Open Source CMS. In another tight category, mojoPortal came out ahead of Plone and Silva who came second and third respectively.
With PHP/MySQL Content Management Systems dominating the 2006 Awards, it was decided that setting up a category for CMS’s written in other languages would be an important addition for 2007. This has enabled us to present and give extra recognition to the plethora of non PHP/MySQL CMS’s that are available. This was backed up by the judges who noted the quality of all five finalists and how difficult the job of selecting a top three was.
The judges agreed that mojoPortal’s ease of use, set of relevant tools and plugins and also the fact that it is cross platform, made it stand out above the rest. On hearing the news, Joe Audette, the founder, leader and primary developer of mojoPortal was predictably pleased. "The mojoPortal team is very happy to be honored with this award. We are working very hard to continuously improve mojoPortal and will use the award money to fund the completion of our e-commerce feature" he explained. "We'd like to thank our community members and the judges for helping us achieve this recognition and we'd like to thank Packt Publishing for the additional attention to our project which has resulted from this contest and award" Audette concludes.
Congratulations to mojoPortal.
