Event type: 
User group meeting

Join us on Monday evening, November 7 at 6:30pm for the first installment of the Brevard Drupal Meetup Series.

The meetup will take place at The Shamrock Room in Cocoa Village. For those of you familiar with Cocoa Village, The Shamrock Room is owned by, and directly above, Ryan's Pizza. There will be no charge for us to use the room, but I did promise that we'll buy food and drinks and tip well.

The speaker will be Ben Hosmer from and he'll be giving a demonstration of Acquia Commons, a powerful new-ish Drupal distribution for social business software. Ben will take you through the main features of Commons as well as demonstrate a Commons site that he is involved with. You're guaranteed to leave motivated to go out and build a Commons site for yourself and/or a (present or future) client.

Wifi at The Shamrock room is available, but it may be spotty. There are 2 or 3 accessible access points, but nobody should plan on downloading any full-length movies while there. If you want to play along during the presentation, I encourage you to download Commons prior to showing up.

For those of you new to Drupal meetups, this is a great opportunity to come out and network with other Drupalists and hopefully learn something in the process. It's a casual event, so be prepared to come and talk, eat with, and share your Drupal knowledge with other attendees.

I have the signup stuff turned on for this event, just so I can gauge how many people will attend. This will The Shamrock Room plan appropriately.

signups are not mandatory

I asked everyone to signup so I would have an idea of how many people were going to attend so that I could give the manager of Ryan's an idea of how many of us to expect. Even if you don't/can't/won't/don't like to/are allergic to signing up, you're more than welcome to attend.

Also - you must be logged in to and a member of the Florida group to signup...


sorry to miss it

Mike, just touching base. We are sorry to have to miss this one - sounds like a great program. we are bringing our catamaran back from Annapolis and will not be back until about the 10th. Looking forward to getting back into our Drupal work and will for sure catch the next meetup.

Must cancel for tonight

I hate when plans don't work out

I'm sorry, but I had homework sprung on me. School is interfering with my learning!
