For over a year now, Peter and I have been working on re-developing our web based conference management codebase with Drupal. The opportunity to do this for a real conference with a real need arose when we were asked to join the technical committee for the 2010 Australian Computers in Education Conference.

It was a drupal filled week. We set two new Drupal sites free into the world, and signed up to sponsor DrupalSouth.
DrupalSouth is happening in Wellington on the weekend of 23-24 January 2010. It promises to be New Zealand's largest gathering of Drupalppl with Australia and elsewhere due to the proximity of linux.conf.au taking place the week immediately before hand. The totally fabulous Angie Byron and Emma Jane Hogbin will be speaking, as will scores of other great Drupal professionals, and not-so professionals. After attending Melbourne DrupalCamp earlier this year, I am really looking forward to participating and getting to know more of the local community.
For the past 6 months or so, I've been working with a small team of people to put together Open Edge 2009, a one day forum to explore open education issues for Australian schools. We've got a phenomenal list of contributors involved and I'm really looking forward to it.
