Drupal meetups are officially back in the San Gabriel Valley and are now on the 4th Thursday of each month. Following our reboot of the SGV Drupal group with our Reboot and Drupal After Dark at Intelligentsia on May 17th, we're meeting this time at Il Fornaio in Old Town Pasadena on Thursday, August 23, 2012 from 6:30-8:30pm. Join us!
Those interested in participating remotely during the featured presentations are welcome to join us via WebEx.
Thank You to Our Sponsors!

During the meetup, several of us will be in the regional #drupal-la channel on IRC and all are welcome to join us. The event organizers will also be monitoring Twitter for feedback and questions that mention @SGVDrupal.
The meetup begins at 6:30pm but you're welcome to come earlier at 6pm for Users Helping Users, which is a chance for members of the community to help and be helped by others with whatever questions and problems they're having with Drupal.
Please note that while Users Helping Users is not designed to be a replacement for bona fide consulting from a Drupal professional that there are plenty of Drupal experts and professionals who attend our meetups and sometimes they need help, too!
Our meetups follow a basic format and start off with Drupal news and announcements, local job announcements, raffle prizes and full-length presentations.
As always, we'll have community Q&A, during which time anyone in attendance can ask questions, divine answers from the crowd and give brief, 5-10 minute-long presentations known as lightning talks.
After the meetup, we'll finish off the night with more networking and a Drupal After Dark at 8:30pm. We may go out for coffee or tea at Intelligentsia or over to Jake's or Lucky Baldwin's for something stronger.
Even if you can't make it to the meetup, going to the Drupal After Dark is a great way to meet your fellow Drupal community friends and colleagues. Join us!

We've been having Drupal meetups in the San Gabriel Valley since June, 2010. In addition to scheduling monthly meetups, our organizers hold occasional trainings and workshops and get together for social gatherings.
Attending SGV Drupal events is one of the best ways to meet and talk with other Drupaleros and we encourage you to attend meetings and special events regularly. See our event schedule at http://groups.drupal.org/sgv for more.
Whether it's to find solutions to problems you've been having, sharing something you've learned or just meeting interesting like-minded people, the SGV Drupal events are an essential resource for Drupal professionals and hobbyists alike.
The San Gabriel Valley Drupal group proudly participates in the California Drupal Travelers Program and can host businesses and community members who are visiting the area. Inquire within by contacting any of the SGV Drupal organizers.
