Building communities is an artsy science that is a strategic initiative for organizations of all kinds from nonprofit to for-profit. In this webinar, we will remove the mystery of building thriving online communities. We will look at community building best practices from leading community managers such as Jono Bacon of Ubuntu, and will understand how to use these pro-tips to grow and nurture global communities through a case study on Drupal.
Why Should You Attend This?
o To learn how the Drupal community grows and is nurtured
o To learn about the community management best practices
Drupal 8 will ship with a fancy new template engine (Twig) and a simpler theme layer. In this webinar, our speaker will show you some goodies from Twig and give you a walkthrough on how to get started with it.
He will also talk about the major problems that people were facing in working with Drupal 7 and what the community has done to make it better. This webinar will show - in both practical examples and on a broader scale - why Drupal 8 will make peace between backenders and frontenders.

Hi all! Please see my post about the Drupal Association's new community organizer newsletter. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions/suggestions!
Hello! I'm a Google Code-In 2014 student and as part of my task (http://www.google-melange.com/gci/task/view/google/gci2014/5873466930626560) I've created an event/meetup template. I've also been helped by my mentor Slurpee to create this template and would like reviews and suggestion regarding this template.
Here's the template link: https://pad.lullabot.com/p/Template_with_Placeholders
and the documentation: https://pad.lullabot.com/p/Event_Template_Documentation
Premise: Outside of DrupalCons and camps, g.d.o user group meetups happen to be fully qualified, regular events maybe worth dosing a bit more followup coverage.
In general, published meeting reviews are not just handy for their own attendees to have but also benefit everyone connected via the web. Where to post the coverage is up to each group; this post is only a thinking-out-loud prototype to offer background and then some specific details on a meetup that just took place.Read more
The first Northwest Indiana Drupal Group Event.
This event will be to kick off this group. Event will most likely be in Valparaiso, Indiana.
We will start with a short presentation, the group discussion and finally networking.
The aim of the discussion was to talk about how the different local groups are organized and what kind of problems do they find and document all of this so it can be used by potential group organizers.
The attendees of the discussion have different backgrounds, from their location having people from Spain, Czech Republic, Austria, Greece, Brazil, Germany, Scotland, Slovakia, Sweden, Holland, England and France, to their experience organizing groups, having people who has been involved in a group for years to people who wanted to start one.Read more
During 23 to April 25, 2014 we had a rewarding experiences when we reached our goal to create a Drupal Camp & Symfony Day in Mexico City at the same technical level of the Camps in USA and Europe.

We are very proud to be the first camp to held simultaneously both the Symfony and the Drupal community in one event.Read more
We have extra copies of the new Drupal Watchdog issue available for local Drupal user groups. You can grab this double issue focused on Drupal 8 at the Drupal Association booth #350 right now at DrupalCon Austin.
If you are not at DrupalCon and you can send someone from your local group to get copies.
A while ago I shared that we are trying to better understand who plays what role in the Drupal Community. A small team of Association Board and staff have done some interviews with about 20 community members and now we want to get a broader understanding - what are the issues that concern you, and who should be doing the work to address them?
We're reaching out to our most active community members to ask you to complete a survey about who you think should be doing what in our community.Read more
Hi Event Organizers,
The Drupal Association works with a lot of sponsors and partners - many of whom like to sponsor camps. It takes them a lot of time to research and reach out to all the camps that they want to sponsor, so we are making it easier for them.
We are asking sponsors and partners to fill out a form so they can tell us:
- What kind of camp they want to sponsor
- If they have a special offer for camps (free Internet, free developer tools, etc)

I've been cooking an idea about massive Drupal training in Mexico City among engineering and science students. It consist in three phases
1) Crowd-source a role centered Drupal learning curricula from existing sources and the community.
2) Marketing and promote the course + remote tutoring to students.
3) Evaluate graduated students, offer internships and future job opportunnities. Repeat
Here's a nice HTML template in the attached .txt file that can be used to announce DrupalCamps.
Simply replace "__" with information relevant to the actual event between the HTML tags. You can directly copy paste this template to your website.
Recently, I made a site to make writing DrupalCamp event announcements a lot easier.
Instead of manually doing everything, you can now edit this template and either copy the page, or generate HTML markup for use.
Hopefully, this will be useful to someone.
