This month, we continued discussing implementations of Jay Epstein's (https://twitter.com/jeppy64 http://jay-epstein.com/) Relativity model (http://jay-epstein.com/relativity/overview). We discussed best practices for Relativity, including how to use the Field Group and Inline Entity Form modules.

The next step is for members of Broward Drupal to create their own site using Relativity, so we can discuss these sites at future meetups as a deeper dive into Relativity and how it can be used to create all kinds of applications.

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.
