Hi all,

Just wanted to let y'all know that Brooke Heaton and I have just released Drupal 8 version of the popular_tags module. It is very helpful to sites that want to encourage editors to converge upon a smaller set of frequently used tags, rather than a huge set of infrequently used tags.

Florida DrupalCamp 2016 Venue and Date Discussion

Over the past month or so, a few of us have been discussing the possibility of having Florida DrupalCamp 2016 at the Stetson University campus in Celebration. There was a possibility that it would be open to us, but the situation has changed and they are no longer interested in hosting the event.

DrupalCamp Atlanta is coming up next month (October 16-17, 2015) and it would be great if we could announce our dates and venue at that time.

FLDC15 Planning kick-off

Seeing how we're behind the 8-ball a little bit in planning FLDC15, Mike Herchel, Dennis Solis, and I just had a quick call about how best to proceed. The call was open to anyone paying attention in the #drupal-florida IRC channel.
