It seems like an age ago now, but in 2013 I wrote about mapping Umbraco content to POCO and presented on the state of Umbraco and Azure as I saw it at the time.
I also wrote an article called My three circles of Web CMS Nirvana (I was into diagrams... inspiration.
So this is quite a meaty post which I intend to break into parts. And if you have the willpower to read My three circles of Web CMS Nirvana you'll be astute enough to realise that part 1 is "to have your CMS output a bunch of files... is IUmbracoContentSerialiser to keep the separation between CMS and runtime as clean cut as possible.
What does the JSON look like?
It looks like this (bodyText removed):
"Name": "Create an Umbraco document with Perl and Web services",
for producing wire-frames of web
page layouts, though as Elliott Kember points out - in a rather long
winded blog post - it can be dangerous in the wrong hands.

Everyone knows about Firebug right? If not and you are a web developer, you are missing out and making your life much harder!Yslow is an add-on for firebug that analyses the download time of a webpage and gives you tips on how to improve. Test results are graded A-F and displayed in a very simple format. You can click on each test which takes you to a Yahoo page explaining the test in detail and the steps that can be taken to get a better grade and ultimately better page performance.Foxmarks... my productivity.

My new site http://autoumbraco.darren-ferguson.com/ allows you to install an instance of Umbraco by filling out a web form which will take you less than 10 seconds. You can choose from version 3 and 4 and also specify whether you want any packages pre-installed – such as Warren Buckley’s excellent Creative website wizard.Why is this useful? Scenario 1: you want to demonstrate Umbraco to a client/colleague who has never used it before. You are out of the office and don’t have IIS running on your laptop.Scenario 2: You want to check out a new Umbraco package or test one that you are developing but you don’t want to install it into any of your development/production environments before you’ve tested the functionality.Scenario 3: You want

A while back I discussed the desire to have a document that
helped me to evaluate a web content management system from a
developer perspective. A few other people expressed interest in the
idea so I've published a very rough first draft here in case anyone
wishes to collaborate or provide any feedback.The document is intended to be a verbose specification of a
simple website to build in the CMS the functionality of which is
extremely common to most websites. The exercise itself should take
no more than a day and leave a developer with a good feel of how to
perform basic tasks such as create content types and templates. The
simplicity of the exercise is such that I'd expect any reasonable
developer to be able to sit in front

Here are some presentations I have given:
2013: Umbraco and the three flavours of Azure
2011: Building Commercial Packages and The Deli
2010: Multi Language websites in Umbraco
I'm into speaking at the moment, I'm happy to come and talk at your event.
I am a content management enthusiast with more than 15 years of industry experience.
I run an Umbraco gold partner called Moriyama in which my role is involves all things content management and web related.
I run the Umbraco Level 2 certfication in the UK and travel worldwide to teach the course. I'm actively involved in developing and maintaining the course materials.
I contibute to the Umbraco project in many ways and have
appropriate folders under the Umbraco web root. A little digging
around suggests that the place to put CSS files is in
~/Content/Styles so I drop my CSS files... realise that by modifying the
default Layout I've trashed the out of the box example layout, but
luckily I can now just go and install a clean copy of Version 5
matrix to use as a reference alongside the site that I am
building... an entirely new development
The old Ferguson Moriyama site used web site forms and Umbraco
to handle a lot of our back office processes - in the next post in
this series I'll be trying to put some forms onto my web pages
. Verify Path. Allows you to check that the web server user has the required permissions to backup under the specified path.
6. Test FTP settings. Check that Umbraco backup can communicate with your FTP server.
7. Allow backup under web root
Disclaimer: I see this as a nice little hack, and something that I’ll use for development and fast prototyping. I’m not recommending it for production use and I know and appreciate that the guys behind Umbraco would probably discourage this in terms of 'best practices'. There is nothing here you couldn't do with C#.
Anyway, having said that, I think Perl is a great and very current technology. I use it day in day out as part of my work with Interwoven TeamSite and it still powers some of the biggest sites on the web including the BBC and parts of Amazon. Web frameworks like Catalyst are excellent and I’m quite prepared to argue my corner with anyone who thinks that Perl is old ‘skool’ and dated.
For those of you who aren’t
