An Introduction to MODX

Kevin Marvin

MODX CMS is the fully featured free Open Source Content Management platform that you've probably never heard of. It's based in Dallas, about 7 years old, and is built in large part with Designers in mind. During the presentation, we hope to show you what makes MODX different from other platforms, and even build a quick website for you on the fly.


Kevin Marvin, CTO at MODX and a 22 year veteran in Information Technology, has been a great number of things over the course of his career. From PC Technician in the early 90's to Chief Systems Architect at one of the leading mortgage companies in the country, he has designed infrastructures, built processes, managed people, and drank a lot of beer. Kevin began programming in the light weight technologies, VB and PHP, back in their early days, and is an avid Linux and Open Source fan. Of late, Kevin has been a Ruby, Flex, Javascript, and PHP developer, eventually ending up leading the development efforts for MODX, one of the world's finest Open Source Content Management platforms.

Kevin lives in Irving presently, but is from Florida. He is engaged to a wonderful woman who brings beer and cupcakes to the office, and has a 17 yo (soon to be) stepson, and a 13yo daughter. He enjoys code, beer, motorcycles, gaming, and making folks laugh.
