175 George st, cbd
Are you looking for volunteers to present at this meetup or will this one be focused on a recap of Drupalcon?
Hi Nick, if you have something you want to present that's great, just let us know, either post here of meetup.
At this stage I know of one short presentation, an overview of a fairly large international Drupal project.
I missed the last meetup and haven't heard if any other presentations were arranged.
I'm sure there will be lot's of discussion about the Drupalcon and D8
I would be happy to give a run through of a site that I'm just finishing. Using panelizer / fieldable panel panes etc as a replacement for blocks.
Sounds good - I've not delved too far into Panels + Panelizer but interested to see it in action.
Hey - all the details are on meetup - i just added the event here for those not on meetup
The DrupalCon in Sydney was excellant and we have decided not to run a meeting in February.
Our March meetup will most likely be a discussion about things we learnt and what's coming in D8.
If there are already presentations organised, or you would like to present please add it to the comments.
The presentations from the Sydney DrupalCon are available http://sydney2013.drupal.org/program/schedule
I would be happy to give a talk on Spark & Panopoly. These things are geared towards creating great UX for content editors / site builders.
That sounds great David...a lot of things in D8 moving towards being more friendly to non-tech users and as such think it's a great topic to support the D8 discussion that will be had.
I'll put up a formal agenda in the coming days, however the plan was to cover the usual intros, thanks, general chit chat then have an open discussion on:
Then 2 more formal discussions which are yet to be locked-in but I've heard of a number of suggestions!
The talks this month are:
Crighton Nichols, a short presentation on Design for Change.
David Peterson, Spark & Panopoly & Acquia's strategy.
Next month, Nick Schoonens will run us through a project, using panelizer / fieldable panel panes etc as a replacement for blocks.

Thanks everyone for coming to the event! At this stage I wanted to open the floor to a couple of discussions as per the meet-up last week.
1.) Day/Time - We've been the 2nd Tuesday of every month for a while but want to check which day works best for people. Please vote on the poll here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/289098
For the upcoming event (9th of April) we'll stick to the current Tuesday schedule, but going forwards may change this based on demand.
2.) Venue - Whilst the pub is central and food/drinks are great, we have hit a bit of a size cap. The suggested venue will need to hold 40+ comfortably and have access to a projector and either WIFI or good 4g/3g in the area and needs to be relatively central to Brisbane. Other desirable items include: close food/drinks and public transport.
Please post any venue suggestions over the next week and from there we'll work on determining where we hold the meetup going forwards.
The State Library has been suggested in the past. Or The Edge.
Personally I would much prefer wifi/projector/space/quiet at SL to food/drink/noise at Irish Murphy's.
I have reached out to The Edge to see if they could accommodate the Brisbane meetup, and have also been chasing up a couple of other options.
The Edge may have a space that might be suitable - the Lab 2 workshop room - it holds 40-50 people in a theatre-style set-up (or about 30 people for classroom-style set-up). It has a projector screen and also a 50" LCD Bravia TV as standard equipment.
Usually there is venue hire involved to use the space, but they have indicated they would be willing to consider a partnership arrangement with the group, and waiver the hire fee for this space. I'm not quite sure what that means yet but have been invited to go and have a look so thought I could get some more details then.
Thanks for looking into this Robert.
The edge has been mentioned as a venue before, the only objections I remember were:
Be good to here others opinions on this venue, the times etc.
