User group meeting

On September 15th at 6:30 PM we'll be having our next meetup at the new Zivtech office. We'll be doing a show-and-tell style meetup where attendees can share tips and tricks and work they have been doing recently.

Are there any particular topics people would like to have covered/cover? Do we want to pick a theme for the discussion?

I wouldn't mind presenting on the way we handle deployment and updates and hearing how others are handling the issue.

I can do a quick explanation of how (and why and when) to create a custom schema and views integration to store and use data without making everything a node and show examples.

Or I'm open to showing whatever people are interested in when they get there. I'm hoping we can start getting more of the folks who came to Drupal Camp to show up for meetups.

that custom schema demo sounds pretty cool.

Maybe I could talk about Studio theme or SaSS. Or whatever :)

Both of these topics are fairly advanced. Perhaps we could also do a section of Q&A / "How do I?" for beginners?

I'm down to lead beginners upstairs on whatever they like

We can use the projector downstairs and hook up to the tv upstairs.

Also I think my topic idea is way too time-consuming so I'm thinking of switching to a quick demo of my new Drush function for variables.

Aww, I was looking forward to
