About Bakersfield Drupal

This is a new group in the Drupal community set up to serve the greater Bakersfield and Kern County region. The group is organized by Erin Clerico, a Bakersfield resident and experienced Drupal developer. Our purpose is to educate our members in all aspects of Drupal use and development, and to provide a venue to local Drupal users to network and share information.

  2. Once you have your account and have logged in, go to the Bakersfield Drupal home page at
  3. Finally, click the Join link found in the right sidebar. You'll be a member of the Bakersfield group l after confirming your membership.

Looking for sponsors

We need a six-month listing on to promote the group. If you would like to sponsor this listing (a single payment of $72) then we can provide a link to your business on this page and a shout-out at each of our meetups during the six month period.

We are also looking for a food sponsor - we will need two or three pizzas, some cookies, sodas and water for each meetup. Estimated cost commitment would be about $50 - $100 per meetup. Until we find a sponsor we will depend upon optional individual contributions and serve what we can. Again - your sponsorship will get a link on each meetup announcement and a shout-out at the meetup.
