This month we hope to do some preparation for the upcoming Drupal 8 sprint: http://groups.drupal.org/node/277768 -- perhaps if we have enough local interest we can join the sprint formally as a group the weekend of Mar 9. Otherwise, our goal is to help everyone interested in joining this, or another sprint, to be prepared and have the tools they need to help contribute to Drupal.
It will likely be pretty informal and very hands on Q&A. We'll also have lots of time for networking and general Drupal Q&A.
We're still working out details for this months meetup, if you have something to share, please contact an organizer or leave a comment.
About the meetup
Each month we come together to learn or share something about Drupal or web development in general. WE Labs is our new venue and this will be our third meetup there. Its located in the heart of downtown Long Beach and is a kind of incubator for everything exciting and new happening in Long Beach. Be sure to check out their website, especially if you're looking for an awesome coworking space: www.welabs.us
