User group meeting

Join us for the Twin Cities Drupal October meetup happening (surprise!) on its regularly scheduled date -- Wednesday October 23rd from 7-9PM at Intermedia Arts.

Topic -- Backdrop

Nate Haug and Jen Lampton openly discussed the idea of forking Drupal this past July at DrupalCamp Twin Cities (first public mention?) and then made good on the idea later in the summer. The launch of Backdrop CMS made DrupalCon Prague more interesting than usual and continues to raise hopes and controversy.

If you have questions or opinions (and I know you do!), join us. We'll lay out what we know, quash some rumors and start some new ones. I may even explain my offhand remark that Backdrop is the "Obamacare of Drupal." Then again, I may not.

Community Lab Hours 5-7PM

Don't forget we're holding Community Lab Hours from 5-7PM right before the meetup in the same location. Come work on Drupal, get some help with your questions, share your ideas, get some stuff done!

Door prize

Due to the great generosity of Chris Shattuck, we will be giving away a gift card for free access to the acclaimed Drupal online video learning library BuildAModule. Remind me to do this and you'll have the opportunity put your name in the jar for the chance to win.

The good stuff: Socializing, networking, food, beverages

Pizza? Yes. Bring a beverage to share. Eat.drink, talk, network...

Ooops! Spelling error corrected...

Didn't catch the mis-spelling of our favorite Drupal fork until the message was sent to y'all. No disrespect was intended, to be sure. I've corrected the error and if you didn't catch it, you'll just have to use your imagination 'cos after I finish typing this I'm not going to admit it ever happened.
