Hey all! Just another Summer of Code student checking in. I'm going to be working on search engine optimization work this summer. I feel like the ten of us are going to add a lot to silverstripe, and end up with some really amazing results at the end of the summer.

This is very, very cool and I can't wait to see how SilverStripe flourishes with the extra attention!
