Though a final spec is still a work in progress, HTML 5 is already playing an ever increasing role in the web and mobile development work I do. It's grown from a blogging app into a powerful, lightweight and versatile CMS.  Wordpress is awesome. While the iPhone is a nice device, I've embraced the open source philosophy of developing for the Android mobile platform. When HTML, CSS and Javascript aren't enough, the majority of the web development work I do is in PHP. MySQL is the world's most popular open source database for a reason. Twitter may still be a little rough around the edges, but microblogging is for real and the Twitter API rocks. jQuery, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile UI are making it easier for content developers to build next generation web applications with open source tools. OpenX is my favorite open source solution for managing and maximizing your online and mobile advertising inventory. When WordPress isn't the right tool for the job, I turn to the equally amazing open source CMS framework known as Drupal. content developer helps you build share and monetize content driven community focused web sites using open source tools like wordpress, buddypress, openx and flowplayer, and social networking platforms like twitter and facebook.
