Tarpon Springs, and Lakeland on the West coast, though to Orlando and Daytona Beach on the East coast.

Group for mutual assistance in installing configuring Drupal sites. Especially  community and  newspaper  sites

Orlando Meetup dates and location

The Orlando Drupal Meetup takes place every month on the 4th Thursday of the month. Unfortunately, that means that in November we run headlong into Thanksgiving, and in December, we run afoul of all kinds of holidays, not to mention the general year-end lethargy and vacations.

Our solution for November and December this year is to simply move the meetup up by a week to the 3rd Thursday (that is to say, November 16 and December 21). I would like to propose that we make this a permanent change, in order to avoid this same problem cropping back up in the future.

Florida Drupal Meetups - financial support

With this in mind, we're happy to (re-)announce that if you are a Florida Drupal meetup organizer, you can request reimbursement for expenses to help grow and strengthen your local community.

We're willing to pay for things like:

Liability as a Drupal Developer

Good day, all:

My company has been a provider of "traditional" software development for the past 30 years. However, Drupal development - or any other CMS work - has not been a focus of the company, despite the fact that we have extensive coding resources both in-house and out, we manage a significant array of servers in our Orlando data center, and we have a number of local clients (potential Drupal prospects) to whom we provide IT support services.

Here's a quick summary of where we'd love some additional help:
