Weekly roundup of Drupal, Technocrat & Technology news!
This year’s UX Australia 2014 conference that took place in the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth was another tremendous success. For the past couple years it’s been a privilege being a primary sponsor of such an important event for the User Experience community. With it gathering in excess of 500 people of every level of interest and involvement in UX, it is without a doubt the must-do event of the year for the region. The presentations were great, and the steady stream of pre and post conference social and networking events were icing on the cake.
