"Joomla is the only open source (read "free") content management system (CMS) that's out there, right?

Well, in a very short word, "no". There are over 100 free CMS systems out there that are being used by a variety of businesses - both small and large to manage both web and internal content. Some are best used for document management, some for websites, some for social websites, some for creatives, some for those who...well, you get the picture.

Come for a fun, two-hour overview of what the various open source CMS systems have to offer you - both personally, but especially as a business owner.
We'll discuss the pros and cons, learning curves and suitability of the various CMS'. Which one is the easiest to learn? Which is well-known as having a learning curve that could make you weep? Who makes it easy? And who is trying to call themselves a CMS - but still has a ways to go?

Come and find out!
