Thanks to all of you who attended the final Wellington SilverStripe meetup of 2012. It was great to see many familiar faces along with some newbies, too.

Nicolass Francken of Wellington's web agency Sunny Side Up talked about SilverStripe and e-Commerce modules. Nicolass started with an overview of the projects and developments currently out there within the community, followed by a demo of the e-Commerce module he has had much success with - Sunny Side Up eCommerce module.

SilverStripe Developer Julian Seidenberg talked about his experience as GSoC mentor to student Vikas Srivastava, who worked on the extensions section (Modules, Themes and Widgets). The process for submitting extensions will take advantage of Composer for dependency management (based on Andrew Short's work integrating Composer with SilverStripe - not Simon Welsh). Learn how the new extensions mechanism works and how to get your module ready for the new system by using the resources below:
