Drupal Downunder will feature three tracks of curated sessions and panels from some of the brightest minds within the Australian Drupal community and beyond. Topics will include design and user experience, coding and development, and business and strategy. Sessions will be targeted at users of all levels, from those new to Drupal to the most seasoned veterans of the community.

Code Sprints

As an open source software project, Drupal is constantly being worked on by a wide community that includes developers, designers, content editors, project managers, and anyone else interested in volunteering their time and talent. Code sprints are an opportunity for anyone to pitch in and help make Drupal better, whether it’s by writing code, reviewing patches, developing new modules and themes, or helping improve content and documentation on the drupal.org website.

Lightning Talks

We'll have one jam packed all in plenary session for lightning talks. 3-5 minutes to showcase your project, idea, event or what have you! Sign up during the conference on a first come, first served basis.


Birds of a Feather sessions, are informal meet-up’s at conferences, where the attendees group together based on a shared interest and carry out discussions without any pre-planned agenda.

BoFs can facilitate networking and partnership formation among subgroups, including functionally-oriented groups such as CEOs or geographically-oriented groups. BoFs generally allow for more audience interaction than the panel discussions typically seen at conventions; the discussions are not completely unguided, though, as there is still a discussion leader.
