My name is Damiaan Peeters. I work together with Elgertsje Gastmans. Together, we make websites for small en medium businesses. Or we work as a freelance umbraco develpers for bigger companies. We make our livingcreating and maintaining Umbraco websites.
In the past we had developed our own cms. Developing the CMS and websites was just too much work. After searching the internet for a while we settled on Umbraco. That was a few months before version 4.5 was released. After creating our second website with umbraco I noticed all the stuff which was planned for our own CMS. We should have switched earlier.
A few reasons.
While going home after my first Codegarden I realized I liked Umbraco even more, not (only) because of the technology but for the community supporting it.
Codegarden is not all about sessions. It's all about being awesome and meeting other awesome people. It's about discovering the real magic.
