Demos of Drupal Distributions – Wellington – 4 June 2019

Wellington Drupal Meetup

What

“Out of the box” is used a lot in CMS solution world. But what does that really when looking at Drupal? How many boxes are there, and what comes out of them?!?

A strongly recommended meetup for anyone who is evaluating the strengths of Drupal and what the different flavours of it look like.

In this meetup we’ll be exploring what can Drupal distributions can do. How many of them are there? What are some good use cases that these solutions can be matched to?

For example, did you know Drupal has a distribution for each one of the following?

  • Social media community
  • Government website framework
  • Online publishing for large publisher needs
  • DAM (Digital Asset Management)
  • API aggregation / containerisation
  • Events management
  • Knowledge base
  • Profile management
  • AND TONNES MORE!

We’ll be answering these questions and more at the next Drupal meetup – with live demos wherever possible.

Gold and Cathy will lead us on content and discussion around this powerful solutions landscape as we explore what the various flavors of Drupal ‘can really do out of the box’.

Wellington Drupal Meetup

What

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.

There are a limited amount of spots available so click that RSVP button!
