Wellington's October Meetup: Govt platform, Deployment, and Testing

Posted by Sigurd Magnusson on 15 October 2013

Three and half presentations were made to a very full meetup in Wellington last week.

The "half" presentation being the couple of minutes I spent celebrating the 3.1.0 release (complete with features like side-by-side editing), and showing off the recent translation of our software into Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic.


  1. The first talk was by Mateusz Uzdowski, who has spent almost a year working on the software and infrastructure that runs the New Zealand Government Common Web Platform. He gave a talk on the platform from a developer's perspective. Watch the video on vimeo. You can also register for developer training.
  2. Second up, Cameron Spiers and Stephen Holdaway from Heyday spoke on a release deployment tool named "beam". Watch the video on vimeo.
  3. Last but not least, Unclecheese (this being Aaron Carlino, also from Heyday) mixed humour and technical skill with his presentation on "heytest", which among other things, visually illustrates how websites render differently between two code bases. Watch the video on vimeo.

Please join our meetup group to be advised of our next regular meetup!
