Open source:

Ten years since its launch, there are currently over 436,000 copies of the SilverStripe CMS and framework in circulation worldwide. Software developers like us actively contribute, develop new features and track bug fixes back to the open source product we use as the "base" when we build a website for you. There are many other UK based developers and the base language is PHP which is the most common development language on the web.

Microsoft Certification,

SilverStripe CMS the first ever open source web app to become Microsoft Certified

Microsoft CertificationMicrosoft's Certified for Windows programme is well known for indicating software and hardware products that have been thoroughly tested and which work well on Microsoft Windows. Of course, much of the innovation in the software world is now happening on the web, and with awareness and adoption of open source software growing fantastically, it makes sense for Microsoft to begin certifying open source web-based software.

The SilverStripe CMS and framework has seen over ten years of evolution. Open sourcing the software has led to support from Google, Sun/MySQL, Microsoft, public global software awards:

The software has no license fees, and doesn't rely on software with license fees, which means the project we build for you will remain cost-effective. The documentation and code repositories are public which allows developers around the world to stay familiar with the software as it improves. And ongoing support for prior versions of SilverStripe is likely to continue for a very long time.

Currently, the CMS and application framework are being translated into dozens of languages thanks to the efforts of developers all over the planet. Please see for more details.

Open-sourcing the base product has made it more secure. Since it was released, there have been numerous notifications and patches relating to security issues and potential attack vectors from community of developers. Two particular areas of focus are SQL injection and cross-site scripting. With hundreds of thousands of copies of the open source software in circulation so far, this has led to the identification and resolution of issues that would be very difficult to solve with closed, proprietary software.
