SilverStripe Auckland - October Kickoff Meetup

October will be our inaugural Auckland SilverStripe Users Group meetup! Come along to meet and greet SilverStripe users in the Auckland region. As this is our first meeting, we'll keep it light on the technical content, but please come prepared with a 1 minute spiel on:

  • Who you are

  • What you do

  • What you would like to get out of these meetups

We'll have a quick talk about meeting formats, timing etc, then we'll launch into our first presentations. Since this is our first outing, I thought we'd keep it simple:
Securing Your SilverStripe Website SilverStripe has an easy to use installer, but in many ways this isn't suitable for a production environment. In this session we'll discuss the issues of database & file security, what additional steps you should take for different environments, and understanding how not to break the security model. This impacts on all users of SilverStripe. Server administrators need to know how SilverStripe works in order to order to set up their servers securely. Developers need to know how to work within the security system, and managers and content owners need to understand what the limitations and risk are with any website.
Venue Opus International Consultants Level 3, The Westhaven 100 Beaumont Street Lots of parking on the street that is free after 6pm.
Timing Due to clashes with other groups of similar interest, I have tried to reserve the 3rd Thursday of the month as our regular meetup time.
Sponsorship We'd prefer this event to be free, so if anyone would like to sponsor the group or a particular meetup, that would be great! Sponsorship will get you advertising to a bunch of technological leaders in the Auckland area, exposure on this site, in subsequent mail notifications etc.
Calling all Presentors! We want you to present at our meetup! Whether you're a web agency that uses the framwork, a hobbyist contributing to the project or a project manager with experience deploying websites, you have something to add to the group. Email meetup topics or suggestions to [masked]

    Awesome to meet others interested or using Silverstripe in their projects. A good start with an overview of the security features of Silverstripe and PHP vulnerabilities to be aware of. Would be nice to be able to get someone from the Silverstripe team in Wellington to go over more specifics of Silverstripe (including what is in the pipeline of upcoming releases) and help encourage the use Silverstripe as a CMS in the PHP community.

    Top effort by Hamish as a kickoff for Silverstripe in Auckland and looking forward to the next meet up. (ok I won the spot prize of Windows 7 but that aside - a good start)
