Thanks for setting this up! I will be there from 5:30-7, but I will have to leave around 7pm.
A topic i'll ask about during this session: I'm curious who has upgraded a website from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 - what issues did you encounter, what best practices should i take into consideration, etc...

Hello all,

I was asked if I'd like to do a short talk about GIT, and I would like to know if there will be a computer and projector available with access to google docs for my slides. I don't have a laptop to bring of my own.

I have a short presentation that I did for the group about a year or two ago, so I'll be editing it to reflect more current thinking.


Yes, Google Drive Access Avail.

Hi Patrick,

Yes, there is a computer and projector that you can use in the Zone 5 conf. room. No problem!

We have a Mac mini driving a projector and ten smaller monitors in our main conference room, so if all you need is web access then you're all set. Any other specific needs, just let me know.

This is Jira a Issue tracking program. It has a Git plugin that makes tracking Issue's and connecting them to Git commits really handy.
