This content is moving... The new home of our emerging technology podcasts and screencasts is Chariot Emerging Tech. The current feed will be retired soon.

Host Tracey Welson-Rossman and I discuss Dr. De Mars' history in remote working, from when she started by using modems, dial-up and tools like telnet and FTP, and today, with cloud-based services such as Google Apps and Dropbox. A good introduction for those who are not yet using cloud-based tools for their businesses, we discuss some of the unexpected consequences of relying on the cloud, including the fact that it is never a good idea to stop backing up your data!

Magnolia CMS is a content management system written in Java that has a long history. Created more than a decade ago, it has evolved into a platform with a significant user base and a large number of third-party extensions that the team dubs 'modules'.

In this podcast, we speak to Magnolia CMS's CTO, Boris Kraft, and to Magnolia engineer Tobias Mattsson.

We first speak with Boris Kraft about the history of Magnolia CMS, and discuss some of the basics of the platform.

Then we interview Tobias, who is the author of the Blossom module. This package provides a Spring MVC web context, which can export content to the CMS from non-traditional sources such as enterprise application data. It uses Spring MVC and annotation-driven classes to expose any data you'd like as content for your project

Tobias is speaking at the upcoming SpringOne/2GX summit in Santa Clara, CA. His topic will be Spring and Web Content Management.
