PreviousNext speakers at DrupalGov Canberra 2017

The PreviousNext team are gearing up for our annual pilgrimage to DrupalGov Canberra, being held on Monday March 27 at the QT Hotel. With more than 200 tickets already sold, the conference is set to be one of the largest Drupal events in the Southern Hemisphere and a testament to how significant Drupal is now within the Australian Government.

PreviousNext has supported DrupalGov Canberra since the first event in 2013, both as sponsors, but more importantly as speakers sharing our extensive Drupal expertise.
