Anyone who wants pizza, give me a count of who's coming and I'll get it here!

Also, let's get some discussion going on what people want to discuss. Last month we had a discussion on performance enhancements. I think front end development was another one people wanted to discuss. Other ideas?


I'd like to come and eat

Some of the other topics brought up we
- Web services in Drupal 8
- Theming
- Scaling and high availability
- geo locate module and filtering results
- agile project management
- using external databases

We also had a conversation after most of the people left in the first draper meetup about maybe doing a code sprint of our own. I don't know how that would play out in a meetup but it was another idea for a topic (maybe better suited to a day of coding).

As a clarification, front-end development was the idea of how to do it without coding it. What was possible out of the box or just adding on some modules.

This will be the first time I've had a chance to come.

Quick intro: I've been working with Drupal for close to 3 years now while also finishing up with school. I'm mostly a front-end designer/developer, but also spend a large amount of time planning, building, etc. Didn't know we had any local groups until Drupalcon.

Welcome Topplestack

robertdbailey, would you want to talk about Drupalcon Austin? Or anyone else that went there? Some great takeaways we could all learn from?

Last call! I'm planning on

Last call! I'm planning on just a couple pizzas, and we'll probably touch on Drupalcon Austin, and maybe go over some D8 cool stuff. We can touch on front end dev if no one else has anything else they want to talk about :)

I wanted to be there today, but got caught in a last minute problem at work. Hope to be there next month. Life has been crazy but should be quite a bit calmer for the rest of the summer. Hope you guys have a great time!
