Final list will be given to the venue at 10pm on July 31st (the evening before the meetup)

Plans?

  • LIGHTNING ROUNDS
    New feature. Have a topic you can present in 5 minutes (with 5 more minutes for questions)? The basic idea is there are patterns for developing sites the "drupal" way ("what would drupal do? etc."). Tell us a quick 5 minute recipe for how to put the Drupal "bricks" together. Theming techniques or other things may also be appropriate. Propose it below. Make sure you mention it is for the "lightning round" otherwise it might get confused with a longer presentation.

    • Adobe Shadow = Awsome Mobile Front End Dev ~ duckx
    • Signup for 5 minute ~ Lightning Talk
    • Signup for 5 minute ~ Lightning Talk
  • 20 Min Talks
    Have a topic that needs more then 5 minutes, we have slots of 20 minute talks. The basic idea is there are broader subjects or more detailed discussions this is the type of talk you would want to signup for, please mention 20 min talk when posting your talk description and the audience you expect to speak to.

    • Wrapup / Round table of NYC Camp ~ Forest & Co.
    • Getting more bang fo your Drush ~ Bleen
    • Singularity ~ snugug
    • Signup for 20 minute ~ Talk
  • We will also have the New 2 Drupal BoF(birds of a feather). If you are new to Drupal and the talks don't apply to you some of us will take a group and talk with you about your issues.

Signup Instructions!: 7 World Trade Center security checks your photo id against the list of attendees that we provide.

I am glad, because I went in on Sunday mostly for that sessions.
I was going to demand a refund of the ticket to the camp.

Still looking for more speakers

If you have a topic you would like to peak interest in or start honing a longer presentation we have 5 minute lightening round talks and if you have a longer topic we have 20 minutes talks.

These meetups are powered by the community so if you have a subject you are confident about, or have been using come and show us. You can show others what works or talk about what didn't in your current project.

As always, if people aren't

As always, if people aren't tired of my babbling, I can show off Singularity, a new, awesome grid system for Sass that, in essence, brings Mark Bolton's Gridset App to Sass.

SASS!

Lightning talk idea

I'm not sure I can make it but

a) I'm interested in finding out if anyone is driving up to Drupalcamp CT on Aug 17th or 18th.

b) I also want to mention the Drupal case studies again. We still need new case studies and we need editor-types to volunteer reviewing the submitted case studies. we're working on a blog post on it for the drupal.org front page, but in the meantime, if anyone wants to suggest sites that deserve to be featured or wants to join the case study reviewers, get in touch!

Hey Lisa,

Hola - Can we still sign up? I got Page not found from the 'sign-up' link...
thanks!

I submitted the attendees

robbiethegeek's picture

I submitted the attendees list for the meetup. I apologize I couldn't add you because neither your G.D.O profile and your D.O profile had you full name visible. The venue has a requirement that we submit full name and you show ID matching it to attend.

I apologize again,
Robbie

P.S. Please update your profile with a full name in case there is an issue again I can pull that info and add it manually.

Unfortunately my trip to NYC

Unfortunately my trip to NYC has been delayed so I won't be able to attend this meet up. Hope to see you in September :)

i went to check the sign up

richbaldwin's picture

i went to check the sign up list and didn't see my name.
for some reason i thought i signed up but i guess i didn't...cr*p

SAME HERE!

chrisgelles's picture

Hey!

I'm not on the list either.
Do I not get to go?

Sorry to those that didn't signup

robbiethegeek's picture

Our host has requirements about submitting the full name of the attendees to them, because they need to submit it to the building security. That is why we require that you sign up on Groups.Drupal.Org because the signups tab exposes that data for the organizers. This is also why we post the cut off date and I close the signups as I submit the attendees list, so there are no discrepancies.

Please accept my apologies and we hope to see you at future events,
Robbie

Playday scheduled for 8/11/12 : http://groups.drupal.org/node/238988
and we have standing monthly meetups and social meetup.


Meetups are first Wednesday of the month.
Social meetup (Worldwide Drupal Happy Hour, aka Drupal Beers) is the last Wednesday of the month.

So close

Have a great meeting. Best.
