Which of the drupal meetups are best suited to the beginner? I'm interested in attending the 4th Thursday one, but what else is good?

Droplabs' Drupal Coworking

Droplabs' Drupal Coworking Fridays and Intro to Drupal workshops, as well as the weekly Drupal Tutoring and Coworking events, are excellent for beginners. These are loosely structured and are perfect for learning at your own pace.

We have a site license to Build a Module, so if you want to watch any of those instructional videos just let anyone on the Droplabs staff know and we'll set you up with a day pass.

My opinion is that any of the "general" meetups are good for Drupaleros of any skill level. The Downtown Los Angeles Drupal meetups, for example, have a general focus on how organizations and entrepreneurs are using Drupal.

The High Performance and Frontend Drupal meetups are specialized for developers/engineers and designers/themers, respectively, but I recommend checking out their meetup agendas in advance to see if there's a topic that will be covered that interests you.

I'm looking forward to seeing you again at one of our meetups. Let us all know if this information is helpful, or if you have any more questions. Thanks!

The specific times and locations for each meetup are always somewhere in the description of the meetup announcement.

It's especially important to check for that time and location information for meetups that occasionally move from one location to another (for example, the High Performance Drupal and Frontend Drupal meetups).

In general, most of the Downtown Los Angeles Drupal meetups are at Droplabs, a free coworking and hackerspace in Downtown Los Angeles. You can learn more about Droplabs and sign up for the newsletter at http://droplabs.net  

DISREGARD THIS, it's a duplicate comment...

On the http://groups.drupal.org/dtla landing page, I tried clicking on the "Subscribe to our Calendar of Events" link but I don't see all of the meetups listed in the calendar.

For instance, "Pro Drupal 7 Development book study group" is every Monday and "Drupal Tutoring and Coworking" is every Saturday (except the last Saturday), right? :)

Can you let us know when and where the meetups are? Thank you! :)

The iCalendar feed at

christefano's picture

The iCalendar feed at http://groups.drupal.org/ical/219129 only shows events that are currently scheduled on that calendar.

If you subscribe to the feed in Google Calendar, Outlook, etc., you'll see events appear only after they're posted here in the group at http://groups.drupal.org/dtla

That said, some events that do actually happen aren't always posted here. The weekly events that you mention are good examples of events that aren't regularly announced. I'll check with the organizer of those events to see what we can do about that.
