Among the various projects I give myself and don't have enough time for, I recently started helping out with development on the Convention Master system, which is used (primarily in the furry community) to look after the various management aspects of the convention - ticket sales, registration, inventory, etc.
Note: This article assumes you have already followed the Phabricator installation guide and have all the relevant user accounts already configured on your system. If you have not fully completed Phabricator setup, go do that, then come back. This article focuses on Ubuntu 16.04, but most of it should work anywhere.
So yeah, development on my various projects kinda froze for a while there. I should explain. I'm staff at a volunteer convention thing here in Vancouver. I've been a volunteer staff lead there for years, even ran the whole shebang once. Well, this year our chairman had to step down partway through the year for personal reasons, and being someone who's been at that level previously, I was asked to step in and take over for the rest of that year's run.
