Greater Los Angeles Drupal (GLAD)

About Greater Los Angeles Drupal (GLAD)

Greater Los Angeles Drupal Greater Los Angeles Drupal (GLAD) is the umbrella group for most of the Drupal activity in the Greater Los Angeles Area.

With several weekly and monthly events, the Greater Los Angeles Area is one the most active areas for Drupal in the world. We've been bringing more Drupal to more people since 2010, and have as many as 10 meetups and other events dedicated to Drupal topics each and every month.

Our members and organizers have produced hundreds of Drupal events, including job fairs, meetups and workshops, conferences, paid trainings, coworking days, study group sessions, movie outings, FREE tutoring sessions from Drupal professionals, and website barnraisings to benefit non-profits and members of our community.

The Greater Los Angeles Drupal leadership team endeavors to actively empower and support volunteers and attendees in the Greater Los Angeles Area, and to provide resources (venues, guidance, equipment, raffle prizes, etc.) and an open governance model with consistency, transparency and accountability.

What's different about this group? (?)

In addition to our unique open governance model, GLAD has a different geographic focus than other regional groups. Formerly named Downtown Los Angeles Drupal, we've been meeting regularly in and around Downtown Los Angeles, California, since early 2010.

GLAD organizers lead a large number of events in the Greater Los Angeles Area, including Downtown Los Angeles, Koreatown, Culver City, Santa Monica, Pasadena, the San Fernando Valley, Orange County, Riverside and Ventura.

Music Startup

Busy independent music company crossing film and TV landscape. Already built a platform for our endeavors but need help fine-tuning, beta testing and future proofing. We do some cool stuff and want someone cool who's up to speed and can come help imagine and deploy.

Event type: 
Drupal 8 Release Party

I have a Drupalista friend from San Diego who will be visiting on 11/14 and we figured since we won't be able to celebrate the release together on the 19th, we'd take the opportunity to do a pre-celebration get together. We'll be meeting at Bootleggers Brewery in Fullerton for beer, pizza and cake (yes, that's a good combo!) at 4:30 pm. If you happen to be in the area please join us!
