    A great way to finish up the year. Thanks Bevan and Welly for the quality presentations and Matt, Colin and Ivan for the lightning talks as well. A jam packed night that ran through to 9pm. See you at the MeetupMixup on 7th December for the final end of year party.

    I have a lightning talk, but it's web-usability related. Is that subject frowned upon in Drupal? Is it ok to talk about it?

      I love carousels. I think every website should have one.

      You needn't think or wish; every website DOES!
