While SilverStripe is widely known and used in New Zealand and Australia, there are pockets of activity all around the globe. One such pocket happens to be Austria! While our best-known member is definitely Zauberfisch (German for magical fish), who is a frequent core contributor (and you may have heard his voice on SilverScoop, the SilverStripe podcast), I'm known as xeraa – bonus points if you can guess why. I have had quite a few points of contact with SilverStripe over the years.
We currently run the Austrian meetup group, which comes together every quarter. Most of the meetups happen in Vienna, but people from other parts of Austria attend on a regular basis. We also have regular participants from Slovakia, big credits to them for taking the long journey every time to talk about SilverStripe.Read full post
SilverStripe Dev Community, let me introduce myself...
Hi, I'm Cam Findlay. I have just joined SilverStripe Ltd as the new Community Manager. This is a new position we haven't had before so I am very much in listen, observe and understand mode for now (only 3 weeks in!). I come from a web development background having worked in various interesting companies and running my own consulting business. I'm hoping the combination of a good understanding of SilverStripe development, the open-source landscape and a focus on people will come in handy as we look to grow the SilverStripe developer community.
