We have a great meetup this month in the San Gabriel Valley. Join us from 6-8pm at Fuller Theological Seminary Glasser Room 110 on Thursday, November 21, 2013, for Drupal news and announcements, local job announcements, raffle prizes, community Q&A, lightning talks and full-length presentations.
Presentations at this event include Workbench and a novel implementation of Workbench moderation; Introduction to the ThemeKey module; and Continuing discussion on GLADCamp, the Greater Los Angeles Drupal Camp.
Are you new to Drupal or the SGV Drupal meetup? Here's a testimonial from a happy attendee:
This is a very well organized and informative session. We got a good mix of senior developers and new comers and some in between. It is a pretty good turn out with 11 people considering it is in Pasadena right around rush hours. People are just terrific, very friendly and ready to help others. Feels like I have moved forward by leaps and bounds. Thanks everyone!
Our raffle prize and parking sponsor for this event is Exaltation of Larks, a Drupal design and engineering firm with a team of Drupal experts in Los Angeles. Visit us at www.larks.la and follow us at @LarksLA to learn more about our Drupal services and upcoming trainings.

Do you have a presentation or job announcement that you'd like to share with the group? Is there a topic about anything you'd like to see a presentation on? Post a comment below to let all the organizers and attendees know what you're interested in. Lightning Talks — brief, 5-minute long presentations on any topic related to Drupal — are very welcome.
Workbench provides overall improvements for managing content that Drupal does not provide out of the box. Workbench consists of several modules. We will look at the main module and Moderation. We will show how moderation can be use in a novel way.
ThemeKey allows you to define simple or sophisticated theme-switching rules which allow automatic selection of a theme depending on current path, taxonomy terms, language, node-type, and many, many other properties. It can also be easily extended to support additional properties exposed by other modules.
Announcing GLADCamp, the Greater Los Angeles Drupal Camp
GLADCamp, the Greater Los Angeles Drupal Camp, is a free, 3-day event coming up on March 7th, 8th & 9th, and is at Hilton Pasadena & Convention Center in Pasadena, California.
After many months of planning, this meetup is our coming out party and we're excited to announce and discuss what we're planning, including sessions, BoFs, trainings, industry-specific summits, a job fair, a barn raising to benefit a local non-profit, receptions, and more!
The meetup this month will include Users Helping Users, which 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.
Please note that while Users Helping Users is not designed to be a replacement for bona fide consulting from Drupal professionals that there are plenty of Drupal experts and professionals who attend our meetups and sometimes they need help, too!
Our meetups follow a basic format and start off with Drupal news and announcements, local job announcements, raffle prizes and full-length presentations. As always, we'll have community Q&A, during which time anyone in attendance can ask questions, divine answers from the crowd and give brief, 5-10 minute-long presentations known as lightning talks.
We will post location details as soon as possible.
We will begin at 6:00

Just bring your laptop, your business cards or whatever else you need. Extra points go to anyone who can bring power cords and extension strips.

After the meetup ends at 8pm, we'll finish off the night with more networking and a Drupal After Dark at a nearby restaurant or pub. Even if you can't make it to the meetup, going to the Drupal After Dark is a great way to meet your fellow Drupal community friends and colleagues. Join us!
