Lightning Talks

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to present for 10 minutes on a topic of their choosing. You may show off your Drupal site, ask some questions of the audience, give a module demonstration, share some marketing ideas for Drupal, and so on. Just keep it brief. No expertise or planning required - just do it.

Dinner

After the meetup, some of us will continue the conversation over dinner at MIT's Muddy Charles Pub. We will likely pre-order some dinner so it meets us there. We'll take a count about half way through the meeting.

Please plan on bringing $10 to participate in pre-ordering food and some drinks. If you would like to sponsor dinner, comment below and organizers will reach out. You will be recognized at the meeting as well as given the chance to do a featured talk.

Hi all. Unfortunately, I'm

Hi all. Unfortunately, I'm away in Portland, OR so will miss this one. Bryan Hirsch will be leading the mtg.

I tossed around the idea of going to Toscanini's for ice cream instead of the Muddy. Seems like an August thing to do. They have a big table there where folks can gather and chat. It is a slightly longer walk than the Muddy, but not too bad. Anyway, might be good to figure this out beforehand so folks can eat dinner before the mtg. See http://maps.google.com/maps?q=tosci+cambridge,+ma&hl=en&sll=40.629561,-7.... Google Places says that Toscanini's is closed but I don't think thats true. Anyone confirm or deny?

Toscanini's 899 Main Street

Toscanini's 899 Main Street is open til 11pm on week days: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Toscanini%27s,+Main+Street,+Cambridge,+MA&....

Their site shows the wrong location at 1310 Mass Ave (Harvard Sq) which I never heard of, not surprised Google map says it's permanently closed (former location maybe?)

Toscaninis

I saw a fairly sizable crowd there on Thursday night, so GP is probably not correct.

Hi,

I am a Business Development Manager with Ebizon, a Drupal company based out of Noida, India.
I wish the same Drupal meet-ups could have been arranged here as well so that we can share our experiences and knowledge on Drupal.
Atleast, I would have shared my experiences selling Drupal as the best Open Source CMS available in the market.

Well Guys, have fun with 3D's: Discussing Drupal over Drinks n Dinner.

Thanks & Regards,

local authors haven't received their copies of the book yet - actually there are some at my house in Natick but i'm traveling up from NYC by bus - so i would love to get my first look at the finished copy - oh, and let others get their first look - if anyone has it, or is passing Natick.

Thanks!
