BlueHackers is an informal organisation of hackers and geeks who discuss and support each other on the topic of depression and mental illness. This BoF is an opportunity to meet with and talk freely about the topic of depression with other affected people. This isn't a therapy group, and is not a substitute for professional help. However talking openly about this topic is one of the most positive and helpful things we can do for each other.  Participation is completely optional and voluntary - you are welcome to sit up the back and just listen if you prefer.

We won't be going through this section in detail in the tutorial.  We'll be building a sample site with a lot of this thinking already done. But if you want to use your own sample content, have a think about these things and come prepared!
 
  
Or if you want to choose your own dummy content, rather than use the samples provided... here's some fun sites to peruse.
