Mobile and CMS

Hey folks

July's Melbourne Mobile Meetup is intended to be about how you can leverage the features of common Content Management Systems for the mobile aspects of your website. This is not just responsive design, but using CMSs to feed native apps to.

Speakers are to being confirmed, but we're looking to have presentations about some of the common CMSs such as WordPress and Drupal.

If you are interested in speaking about a CMS that you've leveraged for mobile websites, please let us know.

See you then!


Norm Douglas - Joomla!
Norm has been building websites since 1997.  More importantly though, he has been involved in online marketing and business marketing for most of his career. He is heavily involved in the Joomla Open Source community and firmly believes in the Open Source philosophy.  Open Source products allow us to build you a site that will not only be standards compliant, robust, and fully managable, but also able to be built upon by other Open Source products.  This means you are not locked into one technology and can build upon your site at anytime.


Chris Ward - Drupal
Chris is a Drupal project manager and heavily involved in developing Drupal sites as well as the community in Melbourne and globally.


Jack Barker - WordPress /
Jack is a freelance web developer, and co-founder of (which helps you find Australia's trendy Food Trucks).
Jack will be talking about WordPress as:
- A mobile-friendly CMS, and also
- A backend for mobile apps

    Very informative session. As a Microsoft developer I found it funny when everyone was bagging Microsoft, but all good. I was more impressed in the thought process and the applications, than I was the technology. It's made me rethink about how I should think about some of my own projects.

    Hey guys, I'm a PHP / MySQL Web Designer, Database Designer/Administrator, General Programmer who has just started working with Phone Gap in order to create a few iPhone Apps, but I'm actually looking for like minded programmers, graphic designers, musicians ect... (those with a flair for creativity) to start up an enterprise as honestly I'd much rather make a go at this as a team rather than a singular entity....

    If anyone is interested don't hesitate to email me at [masked]

    Hi, just sharing some ideas that I'd be interested in to learn more about:
    - mobile payment models
    - metrics within a certain network or organisation
    - location based push of information (i.e. I am in a hazardous location and I am being pushed specific information of that location like nearest emergency, safety plans etc). This would be of interest for large engineering companies

      Payments was last session. Metrics will be coming. Push could be a good idea :)

    Yet another Tuesday conflicting with other meetups. Tuesdays are disproportionately chosen :(
