DrupalSouth

The number of critical issues holding up the release of Drupal 8 is now in the 50s. When will it be released? When it's ready. In the meantime there are some great opportunities around to start to get up to speed on what Drupal 8 is all about. Not least of which are 7 sessions at DrupalSouth in Melbourne next month.

Check them out:

First up, our keynote by Angela "webchick" Byron: Drupal 8: What you need to know

Demonstrates relationships for different components of the web accessibility guidelines. Described in detail at http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/components-desc#guide

 

Accessibility matters. For everyone. For those of us who build the web, and for those who use it too. All of us.

Here's some great resources that caught my attention in recent days.

The Great D8 Accelerate Chook Raffle (a silly chicken silhouette and the Drupal 8 logo)
The Drupal Association board approved a new initiative to help get Drupal 8 done.  It's called the D8 Accelerate fund. We also agreed to personally help do fundraising to support the program.  So I'm running a chook raffle.

DrupalSouth is the biggest Drupal gathering in the Antipodes.

We'll be at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre over three days in early March 2015. March 5-7 to be exact.
