Our mission is to connect Drupal users in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, North Carolina and surrounding areas. We get together monthly for presentations, site demonstrations, and hack nights. Our goal is to help new Drupal users get up to speed, foster the development of existing Drupal designers and Developers, and contribute to the larger Drupal community. The Research Triangle has a big concentration of technical folks, universities, and start-ups and we want to expose as many people as possible to Drupal and all that it offers.
Sorry, forgot to create the matching g.d.o. event for the IRC meeting that was scheduled via Meetup. But most folks probably got the notice via Meetup.
Anyway, here's the chat log for this month's planning meeting:

Hi TriDUG peeps,
I've got a new post up on opensource.com ... an interview with Doug Vann. I think you'll enjoy it:
What's holding back mainstream Drupal adoption?
Stephen Pashby and I pitched the SEO for Drupal talk we did for TriDUG a few months back, for Drupalcamp Atlanta 2012. If you are headed to Drupalcamp Atlanta, we would appreciate your vote for our session topic:
My name is Cy Jobes and I work for Local Government Federal Credit Union in Raleigh, NC. (www.lgfcu.org)
We are looking to use Drupal in our next design of our website. In doing so we will be using more of what seems to be an enterprise level of things. I say “enterprise” because every person I ask about our method of development and live servers, and how we need to have them setup, tells me I need someone with enterprise experience.Read more
Mark your calendars, and join us. It is fun to be in the same space with other Drupalites!
And don't forget Robert's generosity in donating the space to us for this time.
If you enjoy this event, and like the idea of coworking, you can help Robert and others fostering businesses like this by (1) spreading the word to others who may find such a format helpful, and/or (2) spending a day when we're not there as a group at Bull City Coworking and paying for a day pass. Pay it forward, and keep things like this accessible!Read more
How much would you charge for a small freelance non-profit project? (Upgrading a small site from Drupal 5 to 6.)
Please take this Triangle DrupalCamp interest survey:
At various times in the past folks have talked about a Triangle area DrupalCamp. During the TriDUG IRC planning meeting today, it seems like there finally might be enough people interested in helping make this happen.
During the meeting, I promised to query folks here about times that would be best to have an exploration meeting. (Afternoon of next co-working day was suggested...).
Anyway, after some research into organizing a DrupalCamp, e.g.;Read more

This is the monthly IRC TriDUG Planning meeting.
Looking for presenters for the 20th. Got a favorite module you want to talk about or just want to show others a site/get feed back? Either show up or send one of the organizers a note.
How to join:
I’ve not used Haml for anything ever, but I have used Sass for sites that I’ve coded by hand, though not with Drupal. With that in mind, I also haven’t watched these presentations, but I do remember the first one getting a lot of excited buzz at DrupalCon Chicago. Finally if you grow to love Sass, look into using the Compass CSS authoring framework that builds on Sass and makes it even more amazing:
The following presentations were made at the past two DrupalCons in the US:
DrupalCon Chicago 2011
Themeing Haiku with Haml, Sass, and Peroxide.
The following blog post inspired me to start using Chrome Canary: http://jtaby.com/2012/04/23/modern-web-development-part-1.html and I haven’t looked back since. If you’re a developer that link has a ton of stuff that I can’t possibly remember about what you can do with the Canary edition of Chrome. As a designer, I primarily use it the same way I used Firebug: checking CSS and layout issues.Read more
