Gainesville

This group is for everyone living in the Gainesville area who's interested in Drupal. You can post here about anything relating to Gainesville and Drupal, whether that's events, local job postings, or just a call out to talk shop over beers. To receive alerts about these events, join the group.

Meetups focus on connecting people. The target audience is Drupal developers, users, and people who want to learn more about Drupal. We start the meetups with a round of very focused lightening talks that discuss real world solutions to existing problems and Drupal news. These presentations don’t discuss code – anyone with a technical background can understand them.

Meeting Schedule
looking for volunteers

We're open to ways to improve these events and this group, so speak up if you have ideas!

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.

Based on a number of factors, we decided to pursue Florida Technical College (FTC) as the venue for next year's camp. If available, this will greatly simplify the planning: we know them, they know us.

DrupalCamp Atlanta (Sat. Oct 19) - Who's Going?

DrupalCamp Atlanta is approaching quickly - Saturday, October 19, 2013. Aside from Florida DrupalCamp, it's annually the largest Drupal event in the Southeast United States.

It is a great opportunity for the regional community to get together for a full day of learning, networking, community contributions, and some fun.

I'll definitely be heading to the camp (DrupalEasy is a sponsor, after all!), and I'm wondering who else from Florida will be making the trip.
