I would love to know any thought on developing native apps "powered by Drupal" (TM).
I have plenty of experience developing responsive websites which work great on a phone. However, for this new project the phone app should:
(a) appear in the app store/Google Play
(b) be able to take photos
I'm going to develop using D8 even though it's not quite ready yet (not long now, though!)Read more

A few different people have expressed some interest in running DrupalSouth next year (or the year after).
As some of you know, Linux Australia has been the legal entity supporting our events since 2011. We have been acting as a series of event sub committees, convened for each event. We have now formalised that into an ongoing committee to advise Linux Australia and also to better support future event organisers.Read more
