Following are a few of the scenarios where PressGang CCMS may be the right solution.
PressGang CCMS was founded as an internal startup project during the development of JBoss EAP 6. Faced with creating an entirely new documentation suite, the team took the opportunity to create an entirely new way of authoring documentation. Built by technical writers, by technical writers.
The original team consisted of Matthew Casperson, Misty Stanley-Jones, David Ryan, Tom Wells, and Darrin Mison. Additional developers Lee Newson and Katie Miller were added as the project scaled rapidly across the organisation.
Due to internal challenges, a public build for PressGang CCMS was never officially made available or possible. Participating in a Startup Weekend, David Ryan built a public Amazon machine image based on a virtual machine image created in collaboration with Lee Newson. This experience encouraged further focus on solving technical writing problems, and David left Red Hat to cofound the Corilla project. Legacy PressGang CCMS images can be supplied upon request.
The PressGang project is no longer being developed. If you want to join the mission to make technical writing awesome, please refer to the Corilla project.
