Wellington Jan 7-15

Hello! I am a Drupal developer based in Denver, Colorado and will be in Wellington and surrounds Jan. 7-15; I would love to connect with some local Drupallers while I'm there and/or perhaps borrow a desk for a day or two at a local agency for some coworking and note-sharing. Any user group meetings I should know about?

Lately I have been working heavily in Drupal Commerce 2.x and so any e-commerce people, please reach out!

Thanks, Brad

Alex here, organiser of the Wellington Drupal Meetups.
As discussed in our last event, we are keen to do another collaborative sprint together sometime this year, focusing on a D8 module that needs a lot of love.

The poll is here!

Startup Weekend Whangarei

Hey all,

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.

Thinking of moving to New Zealand - Whats the job market like?

Hi, I'm looking to go travelling and spend a year in New Zealand on WHV. I hope to pick up some contract work whilst in Auckland and Wellington, but I'm not so sure that there is a lot out there for a mid/senior level developer.

Can anyone give me an idea what the job market is like? Is there much out there, it seems not...

I also have experience in DevOps processes, like Ansible, Jenkins, Docker, Architecture etc, but I am lacking in experience compared to my Drupal knowledge, so I'm not sure if I could go for a fully fledged DevOps role.

Thanks
