A2hosting support and installation notes

A2Hosting has generously offered one free hosting account for our group and a 25% discount (coupon = a2drupal) for group members on all services.

The free account is a Small Biz shared host account. It seemed logical to me to load Drupal and tell the group about my experience.

This group needs wings!

I am looking to get the Ann Arbor Drupal Users group off the ground. It is clear to me now that Ann Arbor does have enough Drupal programmers to warrant a group of its own. I was especially happy to hear about Drupal being taught at UMich. But...the group is in need of a few things to make it sail.

  1. Critical Mass - We don't quite have the critical mass, although we have 5 new subscribers since last meeting. I think the tipping point for stability and momentum will be around 35-40 members. So get the word out!

Location?

One of the things that came out of our 31May meeting is the need for a regular location.

Most everyone liked meeting at Wolverine tower with its large room, projector and easy access from the highway. But the lack of wireless available to the Non-UM people was disappointing.

Michael Hess offered space on the UMich campus. The downside to this space is parking and poor highway access.

Personally, I vote for the UMich campus location as wireless will be all important when we have a working meeting.

Car pool/Bum a ride.

I live in the commerce, mi area and was wondering if anyone lives around this area that I can car pool with to the meetings. I have a 1980 CJ-7 Jeep so it's not very trustworthy for driving for distances. I would be willing to pay for gas, it's just I don't want to drive down there and have my jeep crap out on me.

1st Ann Arbor/Jackson meeting reflections

Our first Ann Arbor/Jackson, Michigan meeting is now behind us. I pause now to reflect.

We had ~11 People from Lansing, Jackson and Ann Arbor. Thanks to mikejoconnor of the Jackson, Michigan group for initiating. Less than 50% of the crowd was from Ann Arbor (sad). Although I see reason to maintain two seperate groups, it is clear to me that these groups will benifit from regular collaboration.
