Announcing the DrupalSouth Diversity Scholarship

Over the years I have benefited greatly from the generosity of the Drupal Community. In 2011 people sponsored me to write lines of code to get me to DrupalCon Chicago.

Today Dave Hall Consulting is a very successful small business. We have contributed code, time and content to Drupal. It is time for us to give back in more concrete terms.

We want to help someone from an under represented group take their career to the next level. This year we will provide a Diversity Scholarship for one person to attend DrupalSouth, our 2 day Gettin’ Git training course and 5 nights at the conference hotel. This will allow this person to attend the premier Drupal event in the region while also learning everything there is to know about git.

To apply for the scholarship, fill out the form by 23:59 AEST 19 October 2019 to be considered. (Extended from 12 October)

Upcoming Book Reviews

Packt Publishing seem to have liked my review of Drupal 6 Javascript and jQuery, so much so they have asked me to review another title. On my return from linux.conf.au and Drupal South in New Zealand, a copy of the second edition of AJAX and PHP was waiting for me at the post office. I'll be reading and reviewing the book during February.

I will cover LCA and Drupal South in other blog posts once I have some time to sit down and reflect on the events. For now I will just gloat about winning a spot prize at Drupal South. I walked away with Emma Jane Hogbin and Konstantin Käfer's book, Front End Drupal. I've wanted to buy this title for a while, but shipping from the US made it a bit too pricey even with the strong Australian Dollar. I hope to start reading it in a few weeks, with a review to follow shortly after.

Got a book for me to review? I only read books in dead tree format as I mostly read when I want to get away from the screen. Feel free to contact me to discuss it further.
