Digital publishing technologists chart the future for web content

05 Feb 2016

On Monday some of the best minds in digital publishing technology will gather at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra at an annual conference called DrupalGov, founded and convened by Komosion’s Platform Director Christopher Skene (pictured above).

Komosion is a sponsor of the sell-out event which will hear how the open source web publishing software Drupal has been harnessed to create
govCMS, a platform already underpinning 51 government agency websites with 15 more in development and 25 agencies in the queue.

Drupal is used to publish websites for
NBC, Warner Brothers, Flight Centre and the Whitehouse. The conference will include presentations titled “govCMS and the future of government websites”; “How building Drupal with Agile changed my life”; and “Drupal's role in the digital library”.

Komosion hired Christopher Skene, the technical architect for the Drupal distribution powering the Australian Government’s govCMS service,
a year ago to create a platform with as robust an underlying architecture as govCMS and a range of extra bells and whistles for our clients in the private and public sectors.

We launched that platform,
Komodo Kanvas, powered by Drupal in September last year and it's already powering a range of financial services and travel sites including Luxury Travel magazine, and the InterContinental Hotel in Sydney’s Double Bay.

If our platform is of interest, please reach out to Konstancija (“Stan”) Ruza by email or phone +61 427 433 418.

We will also be supporting the conference by reporting on it for
The Mandarin, via our Senior Communications Consultant, Michael Pirrie - a former Fairfax and Network Nine journalist and executive adviser to the President of the London 2012 Olympic Games, Lord Coe.
