SilverStripe Auckland MeetupAnother successful SilverStripe Meetup was held at the new SilverStripe Auckland, New Zealand offices last week (15th Jan 2014). An office warming party! There was a great turn out with SilverStripe developer regulars, new faces and those interested to learn more about our SilverStripe open-source project. Following the usual format we had a couple of speakers share their SilverStripe knowledge (including myself) and as always we captured the knowledge in full audio-visual awesomeness.

So if you didn't end up making it along, or you are perhaps based overseas... fear not, we have you covered, read on.

First up, Frank Mullenger highlighted the features of SwipeStripe - an eCommerce module for the SilverStripe web platform. Learn more about this module and try the demo at 

Slides to follow soon...

Next, myself (Cam) talked about getting involved in the SilverStripe community spaces. No matter your skill set you can learn some simple skills and contribute to the SilverStripe open-source project. A little, done by a lot adds up to big things!

Slides available here

To round the evening off, an all important BBQ emergency drill was carried out and all had plenty of delicious BBQ food and drink to enjoy. All part of the service at the Auckland SilverStripe Meetup.

Thanks everyone for heading along and if you are interested in running your own SilverStripe Meetup anywhere in the world do please get in touch with me or you can look to join any of the existing Meetup groups around the globe
