User group meeting

Drupal meetups are officially back in Ventura County! We're kicking off our new series of Drupal After Dark outings and monthly Ventura Drupal meetings with Introductions & Users Helping Users at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse in Westlake Village, CA, on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, from 6:00-8:00pm. Join us!

There aren't any formal presentations scheduled for this event. Instead, we'll be getting together and talking tech and Drupal over some good food and microbeers. We'll have a round of introductions and raffle prizes, but for the most part we're introducing ourselves and getting to know each other.

If there's interest, we'll do a "reverse case study" of the BJ's Restaurant website at and talk about how we'd build it.

Formal presentations are being planned for our meetups on the 2nd Wednesdays of each month, starting on May 8, 2013, at Ventura Drupal's new meetup host, Pixelgate.

Users Helping Users

Users Helping Users is a chance for members of the community to help and be helped by others with whatever questions and problems they're having with Drupal. We'll also have community Q&A, during which time anyone in attendance can ask questions, share their Drupal experiences and divine answers from the crowd.

Please note that while Users Helping Users is not designed to be a replacement for bona fide consulting from a Drupal professional that there are plenty of Drupal experts and professionals who attend our meetups and sometimes they need help, too!

Raffle prizes! Collect them all! Must be present to win!

Our raffle prizes often include discount codes, magazines, DVDs, books, and free seats to professional Drupal trainings.

If you have any items you'd like to donate to the raffle, please contact any of the organizers at the meetup. We are always grateful to our sponsors for their continued support. Thank you!

Location and Directions

   BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse

BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse is a great location to kick of our Ventura Drupal meetups. It's right across the freeway from Pixelgate, our host for next month's Ventura Drupal meetup, and is a good midway point between Ventura and Camarillo and the West San Fernando Valley.

It also turns out that BJ's uses Drupal to run their website!

I'm looking forward to meeting more folks tonight from both Ventura County and the West SFV!

If there's interest, tonight we can do a "reverse case study" of the BJ's Restaurant website at and talk about how we'd build it.

We're meeting at a restaurant and can't guarantee sound quality, so there will not be a WebEx meeting this time.
