Advertizing your app?

[ #29834 ]
I recently posted a release note on the mod_perl mailing list. Someone responed to my cry for help and we started discussing the project a little. One of the comments was that, he didn't know it existed. If he had known, he would've helped sooner. Here's my question.. I posted 'it' on Freshmeat, I posted releases on the Sourceforge pages. I occasionally update the listings at CMS Matrix. What else can I do to let people know the project exists without bragging?

  • mention it on use.perl which is syndicated heavily or your personal blog or if you are replying to something relevent.

    Or advertise it in your email sigs to lists

      • I was quite surprised to find no mention (or link) of (to) name of the software in your blog entry itself; found, instead, links to three "entry points" of the sites where you did mentioned your software.

        Anyway, thanks for the relevant SourceForge link. BTW, "Alternate datatypes" page -- http://spine.sourceforge.net/alternate.html [sourceforge.net] -- seems to be missing (file-not-found).

        I also thank you that SPINE can work with mod_perl2 for various reasons ...

        • I suck at marketing :) I always feel like I'm overdoing it. Anyway, I'm glad you find it useful. There's actually a lot more stuff included than it first appears. I hope to update some documentation pretty soon (thanks to a new contributor).. as well as get the stable release out the door. The mod_perl support has been added since that beta, but I tried to stick to the same basics as mod_perl 1. Let me know what you think and spread the word if you will. Patches, contributions, cash, free beer welcome :)
    • Half the problem is that it's a bloody CMS.

      Which is not to insult your application, since I've never used it, but you have created an application in the most sexy/popular area (CMSes) or the most sexy/popular coding type (Web Programming).

      You are bound to have some significant issues with promotion amoungst the bazillion other CMSes.

      But on that note, there's a number of CMS recommendation/listing sites out there, and you should be listed on every single one of them if you can.

      Most of those lists are PHP-hea
      • I think one of the problems is that I don't have any reference sites. Back in 2000, when I started developing it, there were only a handful of of CMSs out there. I based the concept on a patchy PHP based CMS. It was pretty difficult to have the app grow as fast as the technology... so it got old pretty fast. Moving it to mod_perl was, IMHO, a pretty smart thing to do. It boosted functionality and stability. I still try to stay away from the real buzzword technologies, try to keep the dependency list as smal
