Nigeria

This group is a Not-for-Profit IT support group that would enable free flow of support and exchange of ideas in the Nigerian Open Source community. This we hope will help those of us that have benefited so much from the community to give back to the community that has helped our work so much. Events shall be organised from time to time by the group. The goal of this group is to foster the local community, provide local support and to allow the local Drupal industry to grow.

The three core roles of Drupal Nigeria User Group will be

• Education
• Support
• Socializing

This group is restricted to Nigerians or Drupal users (or interested users) in Nigeria.

Please help solve my drupal installation issues

Hi guys,
Please I'm a complete newbie in the realm of programmer, so I chose to do web programming. Following my practice session, I decided to test my first drupal website. But my problem is in completing the configuration. At the end of my configuration I receive "Fatal error: Call to undefined function field_attach_load()..." on my screen. I've browsed through a number of solutions on the forum but honestly, I don't quite understand some of the procedures. Please help me fix this issue and kindly break it down so I can understand. Thank you in anticipation.

Hello Guys,

Sorry i have been outta touch for a while, HND 1 students of Computer Science study Drupal as a course in my school (Ogun State Institute of Technology.. Formerly Gateway Poly Igbesa).

Snail speed membership growth

Hello everyone, the membership of Drupal Nigeria Group is growing, no doubt, but its growth is likened to the movement of a snail, shot with a slow motion camera! What can we do to change this. From what i see, Drupal has become a movement in the Web Technology Business in the Western World. A lot of us in Naija, have become voodoo app developers, just because drupal is getting better and better by the day. But the more, the merrier. Its about time we started evangelising drupal with some more seriousness and vigure. Lets start hosting small meet ups, and free trainings for newbees.

First , Let me introduce myself

I am charles Ihekwoaba by name and i build websites using drupal. i am partial or biased in this regard, and the reasons are beyond the scope of this discussion. I have been pleased with the outcome of my efforts (in learning drupal) and i think the same may be said for all of us here in this group.
