GovCMS 2.0 – Thom Toogood & The 100% Open Source Stack
This is a special, opportunistic meetup arranged at short notice, hosted at Xequals new offices and event space on Cuba St. It is directly relevant to all Drupal stakeholders in Wellington who have anything at all to do with Government & Drupal. For those of you who didn’t know, GovCMS is the open source Drupal distribution which is now the standarised web platform for the Australian Government.
Thom Toogood, an NZer who has been central to the project, is coming to Wellington and wants to present to us on this example of government innovation using opensource, with big implications for the Australasian Drupal community.
Highly recommended for anyone who works on New Zealand or Australian Government websites, or is involved in digital infrastructure and strategy.

As announced in July 2018, the GovCMS (Australia) team are now working with Salsa Digital and amazee.io to build the next generation of the GovCMS hosting platform. Last Nov 2019 they migrated 102 GovCMS sites onto the new GovCMS platform (https://salsadigital.com.au/news/102-govcms-sites-live-on-next-generation-govcms-platform) and have on-boarded a lot more sites since.
Thom Toogood, Platform Architect (amazee.io) & Toby Bellwood, Technical Lead (GovCMS) will provide an overview of the new platform and how GovCMS sites are developed, tested, deployed and hosted on it.
Xequals will provide food & beverage for all attendees. If you have any special dietary requirements, please email [masked]
