PICnetters lending a hand in the SxSW CMS showdown

SxSW will play host to what can be considered a cage match of three powerhouse CMSes: Joomla, Drupal, and WordPress.  Two PICnetters (myself and Kevin Devine) will be contributing our support and development skills to help complete a 100 hour project, as defined by the creators of the Ultimate Showdown of Content Management System Destiny (I’m betting the original reference is this catchy video).

Ultimate Showdown of CMS Destiny

This event will be taking place virtually during the next few weeks, but the panel presenting it will be held at SxSW 2009 on Monday, March 16th in Austin, Texas.

Amy Stephen is leading up the effort in the Joomla world, and she’ll be supported by a cast of Joomla experts, including Arno Zijstra and Stephen Fisher heading up design and usability, PICnetter Kevin and Amy focused on the application end of things, and Mitch Pirtle focusing on communications.

For those in the Twitter world, keep track of their work on the #joomlasxsw tag. Go to it, team Joomla!
