As one of the longest-running and largest Drupal events in the Asia-Pacific region, DrupalSouth is an opportunity for the greater community to come together and celebrate all things Drupal. In 2019, DrupalSouth will be making its way for the first time ever to Hobart, Tasmania, under Downunder!
With our team distributed throughout Australia, PreviousNext use DrupalSouth as an opportunity to get everyone together in person each year, run a team off-site, dinner and to enjoy the conference together. We’re also sponsoring and mentoring at the Sprint Day on Wednesday November 27 prior to the main conference commencing. PreviousNext staff are volunteering on the event organising team and our sister company, Skpr, is sponsoring Michelle Mannering’s keynote presentation on Thursday November 28.
The conference will feature both local and international speakers, including twelve sessions by PreviousNext’s team who were selected to present this year. The event program committee had no details on the applicants throughout the selection process so all sessions were chosen based on topic and content alone, with PreviousNext set to present or be involved in the following sessions:
- Eric Goodwin – Highly Processed Migrations – Thus 9am
- Shelley L’Green – The Art of Parenting Applied to Challenging Clients – Thurs 10:15am

We find DrupalSouth is a perfect opportunity to engage socially, network and mix with our region’s active Drupal contributors and community members. The conference will run over two days at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Hobart, from 28-29 November, preceded on Wednesday 27 Nov by a Code Sprint for those are keen to join in.
