DrupalCon Sydney Day 2 Keynote is Senator Kate Lundy!

We are honoured to announce the Keynote speaker for Day Two of DrupalCon Sydney is Senator the Hon Kate Lundy, Minister Assisting for Innovation and Industry.

Senator Lundy is well known amongst the Australian open source community, and well regarded in open government circles around the world. Given Drupal’s wide adoption by governments and public companies, non-profits and open data initiatives around the world, we are very excited to have Senator Lundy deliver a keynote address titled, “From Open Source to Open Government.”

DrupalCon Sydney adds new tracks + more featured sessions

Hopefully the featured sessions we've already revealed have whet your appetite for the feast to come at DrupalCon Sydney. Because we've got some more tasty treats to add to that line up. Last week we featured sessions in traditional DrupalCon tracks Coding & Development and Sitebuilding. Today we'll take a look at sessions in two tracks new to the DrupalCon experience: Content Authoring and in-depth Case Studies, as well as DrupalCon favourites Business & Strategy, Frontend and Community.

Session proposals for the Business & Strategy track

With less than a week to go before submissions close, NOW is the time to submit your session proposal for DrupalCon Sydney 2013’s Business & Strategy track!

I’m thrilled that we’ll be offering a significant volume of sessions that target audiences beyond just the tech-heads. In particular, the Business & Strategy, Content Authoring, Case Studies and Frontend tracks will target technology executives, business owners, managers, content authors, administrators, marketers, designers, people interested in accessibility and more.

Get in on content authoring!

DrupalCons naturally tend to focus on the sitebuilding and development side of things, which led us to choose Content Authoring as one of our floating tracks.

The idea of content as a component of web development is not new, but it is often forgotten in practice. As developers, it's easy to write content off as 'not my problem' when developing a complex CMS. As clients, it's easy to say 'content comes later' and focus on supplying requirements instead.
