The SXSW 2011 wrap up

The tradeshow at SXSW this year was fantastic yet again. We got to share the benefits of LightCMS with hundreds of talented individuals we'd never met before and we also got to eat some awesome food in Austin. One of the great things about the SXSW tradeshow is the diversity of the crowd. We were able to spread the LightCMS love with everyone ranging from designers to ad agencies to educators to charities to film directors and the like.

We extend an enormous thank you to everyone who came by our booth and tried out our product. Your support and excitement was encouraging and uplifting.

Also, our "Web Designers are Sexy" gear turned out to be a huge hit once again. This year we took twice as many shirts as we did last year, and yet we nearly ran out by the end of the first day. Pretty crazy considering everyone who got a shirt also signed up for a LightCMS account. 

If you weren't able to snag a WDAS shirt at our booth, be sure to keep up with us on Twitter and Facebook for the next chance to win one. You can also check out for more information about the shirts and details about any upcoming giveaway opportunities.

To share in some of the SXSW fun, check out a few pics below.

Phew! Setup took a little while, but it was definitely worth the work.

When we ran out of shirts, we tried to lure people in with free stickers. Let's just say that it didn't quite have the same appeal.

Pictures can be either awesome or epic. This is one or both of those.
