Join us Tuesday, December 11th, 2012 at Coloft for a special end of the year gathering & open floor meetup followed by after hours Social & Networking.
This month we'll start with quick news & announcements followed up to three lightning talks, and then quickly breakout into focus groups & questions. Come stump the experts! Afterwards, we'll host an end-of-the-year networking and bash at a local wine bar (either Bodega or Rustic Canyon). Join us!
Last month was packed full of technical presentations with a great turnout and October was a great success at the Wine Bar. This month we're combining the two -- a little tech follwed by a little social. Come to one or come to both! LA Drupal has some of the best talent involved in Drupal. Come join us and bring question to stump the local experts. We'll break into multiple focus groups depending on what types of questions we have, some potential topics: Drupal install fest, drupal theming, preprocess, Drupal behaviors/jQuery, and Drupal module dev breakout, etc. Please feel free to post your questions in a comment or just show-up and we'll do our best on the fly.
- News & Announcements
- Job announcements
- Lightning Talks
- Stump the experts breakout sessions
- Raffle prizes & Giveaways
After hours ("Drupal After Dark"): After the meetup, it is typical for many of us to meet at a local restaurant or pub for additional Drupal networking. Please make a suggestiong (with link to map) in the comments, based on suggestions we'll decide as a group during meetup and everyone is welcome to join!
