Final list will be given to the venue at 10pm on September 4th (the evening before the meetup)


    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.

    • Tagging with tags ~ bleen
    • 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.

    • HAR & Eric's Cool Tool ~ ericduran
    • Signup for 20 minute ~ Talk
    • Signup for 20 minute ~ Talk
    • 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.

whoa, no presenters?

I'll give a lighting talk about a recent tool I build (http://ericduran.github.com/chromeHAR)

Talking points:
- What is a HAR file?
- Why/When is it useful?
- How to view HAR files - Warning I'm biased ;-)

Take your time, explain what HAR's are, and why they are important and why you created your project and how you did it :)

Lets make it 20 mins.

Great Meetup

RKopacz's picture

Just wanted to say thanks to the entire group, great Meetup! I had some questions and was wondering: ok to ask them here or is there a better place for that? IRC?

Thanks again.

Support / Response to Questions

robbiethegeek's picture

I would say that you are likely to get more response in IRC. Lots of us are in #drupal-nyc on FreeNode.net. Head over to http://drupal.org/irc for more info on IRC & Drupal. You may find that you can get more support responses in #drupal-support or the #drupal- but you can always ask in #drupal-nyc,
