Thanks to everyone who came along to our June meetup in Wellington. We hope you enjoyed your well-deserved beer and learnt a thing or two! We were treated to two excellent talks from Sam Minnée and John Milmine. Here's a quick rundown of what they spoke about, with slides and videos for those of you who weren't able to make it.

Sam Minnée

SilverStripe CEO Sam Minnée spoke about the technical improvements being made to the ORM in SilverStripe CMS 3, explaining how it will improve performance and reduce the code needed to get information in and out of your database.

John Milmine

John Milmine, Developer at well-known Wellington web agency DNA, gave an insightful presentation on how to make your SilverStripe site quicker with a variety of performance tasks to do with Javascript, CSS, SilverStripe templates, and the Apache webserver.


If there’s something you’d like to hear or speak about at our next meetup in August, get in touch through the comments, via Twitter and Facebook, or email We’d love to hear what you've been up to with SilverStripe. If you haven't already, join our group for regular updates. We'll be announcing the date of the August meetup soon!
