The Umbraco core is open source, yes. But it’s open source backed by a talented commercial company, the Umbraco HQ.
This way you can rest assured knowing that the Umbraco software and services that you’ve based your projects on are all fully supported, organized and kept up-to-date by a professional organization. An organization that’s got more than 10 years experience and is made up of a selected bunch of highly talented and friendly people.
The friendliest CMS community on the planet
And super skilled, may we add! The Umbraco community currently consists of over 200,000 active users. Or as we like to call them, craftspeople. Because that’s what they are, craftspeople with talent who use Umbraco as their tool to build, extend and improve projects - everyday.
Our highly-committed community tests betas and fixes bugs, contributes to the core CMS and gives us honest feedback. These Umbracians help us move the project forward so that you, and everyone else, can use a CMS that doesn’t get in the way of things and fits the current needs and demands of the market. And we don’t call them the friendliest community for nothing - go discover for yourself on Our.Umbraco.com and join in.
Umbraco Partners - a seal of approval
There are plenty of fish in the sea. Same goes for when you have to find an Umbraco agency for your next project. You’re of course in the search for a good one, a reliable one, a talented one - the perfect match.
This is where the Umbraco partnerships come in handy. Because the Umbraco Silver, Gold and Platinum Partners all come with a guarantee - a guarantee of best practise Umbraco skills, as they’ve invested in being trained to a certain level of certification by Umbraco specialists. A guarantee that will help you separate the salmon from the surströmming, and the sharks from the salmon.
