Chicago

Chicago's local community of various user groups focused on Drupal. Groups have various meetings each month in/around Chicago. In addition, be sure to join our group if interested in posting or hearing about Drupal related job opportunities in the Chicagoland area.

If located in suburbs, check out the Fox Valley Drupal Meetups with topics for all users or check out the Village of Oak Park Drupal User Group (VOPDUG) which focuses on mentoring with code sprints. Feel free to join us in person to hang out at any of these valuable events by reviewing all of our events in right sidebar here -->

Chicago Web Pro Seeks Drupal Mentoring

Hello!

I'm a longtime Chicago-based web professional who is looking to expand my Drupal knowledge and skills. Everything I've heard about learning Drupal points toward the need to establish a relationship with a mentor: someone who can point me in the right directions, tell me of best practices, and introduce me to all of the foibles of Drupal and its contributed Modules. So, I'm looking for an opportunity to work with an individual or team on a Drupal project where I can be eased into the process of implementing Drupal sites.
