Join us for a meetup to talk Drupal at the offices of at Oversee.net on February 15, 2011 in Downtown Los Angeles. There will be several presentations as well as open discussions, job announcements and time for networking. Several of us may be going to a local restaurant or bar for a Drupal After Dark afterward.
The meetup begins at 7:30pm but the doors open a little earlier at 7pm for Users Helping Users, which is a chance for members of the community to help and be helped by others with whatever questions and problems they're having with Drupal.
The first 15 people to sign up will get free parking and anyone who signs up after that can get discounted parking. Preference is given to those who carpool. All who sign up will also have instructions and last-minute details (if there are any) sent to them before the meeting.

If you'd like to give a presentation, announce a job position or ask any questions of the group, please come a few minutes early or leave a comment below. If presenting, be sure to bring your laptop (and power and display cables) and whatever else you need.
Job announcements and open Q&A
Everyone has a problem every now and then and the open Q&A session is a chance for attendees to divine answers from the collective wisdom of the group. This is also an opportunity for local businesses to make job announcements and ask for referrals and recommendations.
Presentations will be announced in the comments below.
We have time as well for lightning talks, which are 5-10 minute presentations from attendees who would like to share something with the group. If you'd like to give a lightning talk, be sure to come a few minutes early and bring your laptop (and power and display cables) and whatever else you need.
As always, please feel welcome to leave a comment below and let others know what you'd like to present ahead of time.
