The call for sessions for DrupalSouth is
So get those sessions in, and help spread the word. If you’ve already submitted a session, thank you!!!
If you haven’t submitted a session, hop to it! Don’t miss the deadline because you couldn’t think of the perfect title pun, or you didn’t get a chance to give your description that final polish, or you’re worried that your speaking skills aren’t TED talk standard. Have you got something to share that’s of value to the Drupal community, and/or the wider digital community? Then we want to hear from you!
And finally, please do help us get the word out. We won’t be extending the deadline, so if you know someone who really should be speaking at DrupalSouth, please do everything you can to persuade them to submit their session idea NOW!
Submit your session at https://melbourne2015.drupal.org.au/program/session-submission
Oh... what's DrupalSouth?
It's THE Drupal event for our part of the world, happening in Melbourne 5-7 March 2015 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

If your website does not meet the following criteria, it will be removed;
- The website must not be down.
- The services or products may be free or commercial.
- The company must offer Drupal-tailored services. A company that focusses on a specific service for any CMS is not appropriate. A company offering a variation of this service that is tailored for Drupal is appropriate only if the Drupal-tailored variation is advertised as a major product or service on their website.
- A company that offers services or products specific to Drupal as well as equivalent services or products for two or more alternate technologies, is only appropriate if the company inarguably has more than one developer working 90% on the Drupal services or products.
- These criteria are evaluated based on the information available on the website linked to here.
My notes from the first Wellington Drupal meetup for 2016.
The notes roughly follow the agenda (http://www.meetup.com/Wellington-Drupal-Meetup/events/228220802/).
- Around 15 people for the first 2016 meetup.
- More modules to test out.
- Some great contributions to the community.
- A presentation on initial attempts to migrate a D6 site to D8.
- A lessons learned 'horror story'.
- Great discussions about managing client sites and scaling, and payment gateways.

Whangarei is about to have it's first start-up weekend (http://whangarei.startupweekend.org/).
For those who haven't heard of them it's kind of a start-up sprint. Over the weekend people pitch ideas for a start-up business or org, select some ideas & develop them into a pitch & try to develop it into a clear proposal for a startup over the weekend, including code & design to the degree possible.
So, I have been tasked with reaching out to tech folk & designers who might like to come along & learn something new or just contribute their ideas & knowledge.Read more
