When we first started to ask around about the companies that should present at Switch, nearly everyone told us to check out this Apostrophe thing the guys at P’unk Ave are working on.

It turns out that Apostrophe is one of the premier content management systems built on the PHP symphony framework. The CMS is the latest baby from South Philly’s P’unk Ave, the same group that brought you Junto and Ignite Philly.

Apostrophe is meant to make website editing easy, especially for people with not much of a technical background. After logginging in, users can browse their site like normal and edit text and images from the frontend view.

The CMS is currently being used by Duke, Franklin and Marshall and the Philadelphia YMCA. The South Philly web development shop has promised us that it will be showing off the Apostrophe 1.5 for the first time at Switch, which includes additional features such better media management.

Come get inspired by Apostrophe and four other Philly innovators at Switch on October 6th at the Levitt Auditorium. Get your tickets today.

A big thanks to our sponsors: First Round Capital, Genacast Ventures, The University City Science Center,MCD Law Partners, VC Deal Lawyer, The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, Corzo Center for the Creative Arts, and University of the Arts.
