Branding in Drupal - Matt Throne

Matt will talk about the challenges he faced when building a Drupal site for Jigsaw PR and how a good logo can change everything.

Let the Machine do the Work - Dave Hall

Automation helps reduce errors while freeing up developer time. Dave will provide some practical examples of how automation can improve your development workflow. Your team can use the time saved to think.

Display fields the way you want - Anton Baggerman

A brief intro to the Field Formatter API with some practical examples of why you would want to use it.

TAFE presentations and Showcase

A number of short presentations of work done by last semester's TAFE students.

Informal mentoring and Q&A

Some Drupal old hands, Ivan, Ryan and any number of others, will be available to help out with any Drupal questions or problems you may have.

Looking for work?
A chance for Drupal developers who are looking for work (contracts, partnerships, employment) to make a 1 min pitch to the audience. This is your chance to intro yourself. Be sure to mention your skills and what work you are looking for.

Lightning talks
Got a quick 5 min talk up your sleeve? Bring it along on the day.

Get involved

We are actively encouraging presenters and mentors to come forth to take part in future events. If you have some ideas, just let us know. Each month there is room for lightning talks as well, so if you have something to present bring it along.
