Drupal 8 for mobile native app

Hey guys

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!)

DrupalSouth Videos

Hey everyone!

The videos for DrupalSouth are now on the website!
https://melbourne2015.drupal.org.au/session-recordings

The vids can be found embedded on each session node.

They're also all listed on our YouTube channel
https://www.youtube.com/user/DrupalSouth

plus @cafuego is threatening to create a torrent at some point.

Unfortunately, one session was not recorded, and we're not sure why / how that happened. It was the accessibility session

Call for expressions of interest to run DrupalSouth in 2016 (and 2017?)

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.
