2015 was a really busy year for me, I’m sure I’ll forget lots in doing this run down, but I’ll try to do one anyway. The year started pretty shittily, with Laurel being ill, but we soldiered on and enjoyed some cricket anyway

The Catalyst Open Source Academy again went well, with the group working on Koha getting a lot done.

The boys and I went on a trip to the Hawkes Bay at the end of January which was a ton of fun, splash planet is great fun with kids. One of the highlights for Te Pō Atarau was getting to feed a lamb.
In February we went to watch the Jousting at Harcourt park and the kids got to try archery.
In April, Te Pō Atarau invented which might be the most complicated game I have ever tried to play
And I presented at the Open Source Open Society conference.
I turned 42 in May and Te Pō Atarau turned 6. I also went up the coast to participate in the Digital Nati sessions, which was great.
The highlight of June for me was the kid’s disco which I live tweeted.
July was busy with Matariki, and my favourite Kaumatua kapa haka, as well as Armageddon and Māori language week.
August was about the quietest month of the year, but then in September we went to Fiji and the US.
We got back in October, and 4 days later I flew out to Kohacon15 in Nigeria, which was a totally amazing trip
November was the LIANZA conference.
Kahurangi turned 9.
And we had Island food O’clock for one of our beer o’clocks at work.
And December was Kiwicon and of course Christmas
