The OSTraining Podcast #22: Andrew Embler and Concrete5

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Andrew is the founder and CTO of Concrete5, an open source CMS that’s comparable to WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and others.

Concrete5 has been around for over a decade and has introduced some innovations that other projects still haven’t managed to equal. For example, for a long time now, Concrete5 users have been able to click on any part of the site to edit items, right there on the page.

I talk with Andrew about what it’s like to run a large project for many years. He describes the ups-and-downs, including a major release that broke backwards compatability and frustrated some community members. Andrew also talks how he found a second wind, 10 years into building his project!
