Drupal comes to Dundee!

The first meeting of the Dundee Drupal User Group kicks off on Tuesday 21st May, in room 1G10 in the Dalhousie Building (http://www.dundee.ac.uk/general/campusguide/virtualtour/dalhousie/).

The room's available from 6.30pm, with the main event kicking off at 7pm:

  • Summary of what's happening on Planet Drupal right now
  • Job announcements
  • Lightning Talks - 5 minute slots for anyone to demo anything cool and interesting they've stumbled across recently.
  • Main Presentation: "The Current State of Drupal 8" - Dries Buytaert*
  • Pub

We have the room in the Dalhousie Building until 9pm, and will probably adjourn to Duke's Corner (http://www.dukescorner.co.uk/) for beer and chat afterwards. More details to follow over next few weeks.

All are welcome - especially those who are new to Drupal or want to find out anything about getting started. As with Drupal, the event is free... just please signup so we know who's coming.

(* Exciting though it is for the first Drupal Meetup in Dundee, Dries (the founder of Drupal) can't make it in person, so we'll be watching his keynote speech being streamed live from Portland OR at this year's North America Drupalcon. Kick back, soak it all in, maybe enjoy a beer)


Main Presentation - Dundee DD

I've just updated the agenda for the Dundee Drupal Drinks: the meeting coincides with the first main day of DrupalCon Portland, so thought it might be a good idea to sit back, relax and watch Dries Buytaert deliver his keynote speech (streamed live). Might even be able to smuggle in some free beer.
If you've never been to a DrupalCon, or want to get a great summary of what to expect in Drupal 8, this is wonderful introduction. A great opportunity for beginners and experienced Drupalistas alike.

I've also added in a slot for anyone wanting to hire local Drupal talent to give a brief pitch. Any agencies or web shops welcome to come along. Just sign up to this event please.

And if you can't make it do Dundee next Tuesday, you can watch Dries via http://portland2013.drupal.org/live from 7.30pm (BST)

Anyone else heading over to Dundee from the Fife side? I'll need to hunt out bus times if not – this would be so much easier if I could walk on water.

University sites seems reluctant to divulge the location of the Dalhousie building at the moment, hopefully it'll respond by some time tomorrow.

Hi Adrian,

The campus map should have the location. Click Dalhousie Building in the list underneath the map (you can filter the list by using the 'Search Locations' box, which makes it a bit easier to find).

It was the campus map that wasn't responding. It worked eventually. :)

If anyone wants to do a main 15-30 mins presentation, let me know. A couple of lightning talks (5 mins, off-the-cuff) wold be great too.
