Adelaide Freelancers? Looking to move a client.

Hi Guys,

I'm looking to offload a client and was wondering if there are any freelancers around Adelaide who are looking for work? The client's site is a D7 Commerce setup, so knowledge of Commerce is a must. The client themselves are very easy going, always on time with payment and are quite reasonable with their requests. If I didn't have work coming out of my ears, I would be keeping them. I have a decent amount of work documented that they need to get done, so there's a decent amount of work up front with ongoing support etc.

Mini Survey: Drupal Pain points

Hello everyone,

I'm conducting kind of a short survey on some pain points of Drupal. I would really appreciate it if you guys could give your opinions on them :) Here are the questions:

Q1) The journey to start contributing to Drupal is somewhat complex and confusing for newbies. How can this be improved?

Q2) How can Drupal be made easier for newcomers to learn. How can the learning curve be made less steep?

Q3) Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 was a major shift for many. How can this change me minimized?

Q4) How can migrations from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 be made easier?

Any freelancers out there who need another client?

Hello!

I out of the freelancing game. One of my clients needs a bit of work done, so I wonder if there's anyone out there who would be interested in taking them on?

They are a labour organisation in the transport industry.

Their drupal 7 website integrates with their Netsuite CRM, but apparently some changes on the Netsuite side of things has broken it. So the initial job would be to fix this. I'm sure there will be ongoing, occasional work.

The client is based in Sydney, so ideally you would be too.

Message me if you're interested.
