Since the first Drupal Downunder in Brisbane 2011 our staff have been attending and presenting at the Australian Drupal conferences.
They are fantastic events for networking with other Drupal Developers, reaffirming old friendships and stepping away from the computer screen for a few days.
The DrupalSouth 2016 conference is nice and conveniently located just down the road at the Gold Coast. The Q1 building will be something to admire, however it is the information sessions put on by other Drupal Developers who love Drupal and admire Open Source that is the biggest drawcard.
With sessions in tracks such as Planning, Business Strategy, User Experience and Public Drupal, the conference is starting to engage more managers and clients, while retaining the traditional Site Building, Front end and Community tracks that Drupal Developers crave.
This year's event promises to be big - with sessions on Raspberry Pi, govCMS and the pleasure and pain of website content. We all go looking for something different, so look out for us there.
