Fellow Vancouver Drupal users...
robertDouglass has thrown down the gauntlet for user groups the world over. As a hotbed of Drupal activity, can we be left behind?
With the impending Drupal User Group meetup coming around the corner, I'd like to organize a session for playing with the 5.0 release.
Not a coder? New to Drupal? You can still contribute! I will be around to help any users who need non-coding tasks (and believe me, these are both abundant and essential).
I will be sitting in #drupal-vancouver on irc.freenode.net. You can also contact me over jabber @ firstname.lastname@example.org
If enough of us want to get together in meatspace, I'll find a venue - I'll even supply beer, pizza and wings.
