This month I'll be doing a walkthrough of using Commerce Kickstart (a Drupal distro that will get you 90% of the way of having your Drupal Commerce site up and running). We'll walk through installing Commerce Kickstart, installing additional modules and discussing how Products are setup and if we have enough time, go over Rules in Drupal Commerce (the true power in Drupal Commerce).Read more

The three organizations chosen are:

Orlando will be one of the host cities for the first Drupal Coworking Friday.

We'll be at UrbanReThink on January 27th 2012 in the "Garage" all day long (The UrbanReThink cost will be covered by Mediacurrent.)
There are plenty of good restaurants around Urban ReThink so we'll probably do lunch "out" and possibly dinner/drinks afterwards. (Meals will be the responsibility of the attendees.)Read more
