Introduction from down under

Hi all,

Been lurking on FeverBee for a while, mostly landing here when googling Community related topics for work. My company Hinterlands has been building Communities for customers in Australia since about 2011.

I love building successful Communities and keen to share my experience here on FeverBee.

Welcome @chriskuta - great to have you here.

So your company consults with other businesses to build communities?
Any particular types of community or industries? Are you platform specific?
Do you have any speciality yourself that people here might draw from?

I look forward to hearing from you on your thoughts and experiences.

Hi @Nick_Emmett - thanks for the questions.

We’re a digital agency at heart that specialise in technical implementation and customisation of online communities. We primarily support Lithium, Discourse and Vanilla right now, however we are looking at AEM Community and Salesforce solutions. Industry wise its quite diverse from telcos, finance to utilities.

My speciality is user experience, I’m particularly interested in online communication models and how we can improve these as technology gets better. I’m intrigued that the humble “forum” layouts, while well over 20 years old, haven’t really changed all that much. :slight_smile:

Hey Chris,
Fancy seeing you here. :slight_smile:
I can’t remember whether I told you that this was my last gig before I moved to team Discourse.

Hey @HAWK - yes… actually I had read lots of your posts here before we met at Swarm last year… :grin:
