Hi Everyone,

Come and join us for the first Drupal Show and Tell in 2017! This is a great opportunity to learn from the interesting talks as well as a chance to mingle and meet new people within the Drupal world.

This month we are meeting at 6.30pm at the Clarence Centre in a room generously lent to us by South Bank University. Tea, coffee and delicious sandwiches will be provided, we then head over to the Duke of York on Borough Road (http://www.shepherdneame.co.uk/pubs/southwark/duke-york) for a few beers and more Drupal chat.

On the night we will also be giving away 2 free ebooks from Packt Publishing (https://www.packtpub.com/), so come along for your chance to WIN!

If you are interested in attending, please do sign up and RSVP.

Our speakers and details of talks are below:

Speaker: Nigel Milligan

Title: 'Caching with Drupal 8 and NGINX'


Drupal 8 poses performance challenges to your architecture. Drupal out of the box comes with many potential solutions but these won't necessarily be the most optimal for your own build. NGINX has the functionality to provide significant performance improvement beyond Drupal's capabilities.

Speaker: Anthony Seale

Title: 'From law to web apps'


Working as a finance lawyer at a large firm, I soon developed desires to improve the efficiency with which lawyers operate. This talk describes how end-user need has driven the evolution of a legal web application, starting from learning to code, through the creation of simple Drupal Views, to making customised editable Views and finally ending up with a partially de-coupled JS application running off a RESTful API. This will be set in my experience of entrepreneurship and product-based work.

Speaker: Malcolm Young

Title: 'How We Work: Building a software engineering team culture at Capgemini'


This talk discusses how we’re aiming to build a culture of quality, and the challenge of balancing freedom and responsibility. We’ll look at how we encourage developers to take responsibility for improving their work, and how we can build an engineering mindset. It draws on lessons learned from working on large enterprise teams, but applies equally to small teams and open source contribution.

We would like to confirm that Cameron & Wilding are the organisers of this event. You can find out more about us here: http://www.cameronandwilding.com/

All the best
