It is with great pride that we announce the beta launch of the new cloud content management platform. Our engineers and designers have worked tirelessly over the last year to bring this product to anyone who wishes for an easier and faster way to build cutting-edge, future-proof websites with no compromises. We are very close to opening the doors, and will be letting early registrants in over the next few months. We will also be at SXSW Interactive in Austin from March 15-18.

Governor was initially concieved in 2007 as a way for The Old State to manage the demands our clientele and their need to have control over their website content. After years of installing many other CMS systems we decided that it would be more effecient to create a CMS that was truly tailored to our workflow and internal systems. Yes, yes we were young and spirited back then, but over the past 9 years we’ve learned so many valuable lessons about what a CMS should and should not be. Thru the victories and defeats along the way were able to forge methodologies and architecture that has truly become a very, very powerful and elegant solution for those seeking a better way to build websites. utilizes the powerful and trusted AWS Cloud Computing infrastructure along with the incredibly fast and agile Governor Site Rendering Engine and Governor-Templating-Engine to allow any novice or experienced developer to build sites that are incredibly scalable. We have unleashed the power of JavaScript and an advanced Governor Tagging system that allows site authors the ability to simply tag the elements they want to manage and depending on the tag a variety of backend tools and functionality is instantly added to the website.

Not only is it easy to install on virtually any website, it is completely responsive from the ground up using the Twitter Bootstrap mobile-first framework at its core. With site analytics and reporting, advanced SEO features, the ability to manage unlimited websites in a single account and much more, is truly ready for business.

There is so much more to show and tell, but we think the system speaks for itself. We hope Governor makes the experience of developers, designers, agencies, businesses and anyone who runs a website, much more enjoyable and profitable.
