Volunteer wanted - geekspeakr.com

Shiny's picture

I run a website called geekspeakr.com

Many organisers of technical conferences, meetups, and dinners want to have more gender-balance in their lineups, but they don't know where to find technical women speakers.

Enter geekspeakr.com, a simple directory and connections system to help technical women speakers and event organisers to find each other.

The site runs Drupal5. I've got a small list of excellent feature requests, but need to upgrade it to D6 before i get into that sort of custom dev.

This is been on my todo list for much more than a year, and now with a baby due in a couple months i have to admit i'm not going to get around to it.

I'm looking for a volunteer to do the D5 to D6 upgrade. It's probably trivial.

It runs views module, CCK, a customized version of the "nudge" module (that's the quick contact functionality) and node profile.
database is postgres 8.

Please contact me if you're willing to help with the upgrade.

Would be awesome to get a volunteer or two for this...

This is a great resource for allowing conference organizers to reach out to women speakers and increase their numbers.

I'm obviously quite booked up until code freeze/Drupalcon, but after that (mid-to-late September) I'll see if I can carve out some time if no one else steps up.

Shiny - I might be able to help...

But first, congratulations on the baby!!!! And you're right, this is going to sink to the bottom of the list (quite necessarily) :-D after the baby comes.

Can you contact me off-list and we can discuss further???
