Thanks to everyone who came along to our October Wellington Meetup. Word on the street is that it was one of our most popular meetups for 2011, with approximately 30 people attending.
Our MC for the evening was co-founder Sigurd Magnusson who kicked the event off, followed by presentations by community member Cam Findlay and SilverStripe Head of Developement Rainer Spittel. We have included videos of both presentations below, along with accompanying slides. See you all in the new year! Our next meetup is scheduled for January.Read full post

We have come a long way; many of you have already used the standalone framework to build great stuff, but it only came as part of the CMS.
