Event type: 
User group meeting

Hi everyone,

Drupal 8 is nearing the release candidate stage, with only a handful of critical issues remaining. This month, core developers committed to providing an upgrade path between all remaining releases, which means it's finally time to start building your first sites in Drupal 8!

Let's get together at this month's meetup to start our first Drupal 8 sites together. At the meetup, I'll lead everyone through the install process and then show off the new features of Drupal 8 for the site builder. I'm planning to focus on things you can do out of the box, without writing custom code or installing contrib modules. This is an area where Drupal 8 has really improved over Drupal 7.

We've talked about some of this stuff at previous meetups and DrupalCamps, but now it's time to get your hands dirty and try it for yourself. Everyone goes home with a shiny new Drupal 8 site to play with!

The meetup will be next Monday, September 28 at 7:00pm at Ann Arbor Spark Central (330 E Liberty St). Everyone planning to install Drupal 8 should come to the meetup with laptop, and ideally, with an available hosting account or local development environment to install Drupal on. If you don't have a local development environment, we'll help you set one up.

This is a meetup for all skill levels and interests, so I hope to see a lot of new faces next week as we welcome the future of Drupal.

Reminder: A2 Drupal Meetup Tonight

Hi everyone,
Just a quick reminder that tonight at the Ann Arbor Drupal meetup, we'll be installing Drupal 8 and trying out its shiny new features for site builders.

At long last, I can say that this is not a drill. Release Candidate 1 is expected on October 7, which means the Drupal 8 train is now leaving the station. Hop on board with us tonight!

Meetup Details:
Time: 7pm - 9pm
Location: Ann Arbor Spark Central (330 E Liberty St)

Bring a laptop if you want to follow along with the Drupal 8 install. After the Drupal 8 discussion, we'll have our usual Q&A time. (for all versions of Drupal) So, bring your questions, and the Group will do its best to help you out. And as always, I'm sure we'll go to Bar Louie after the meetup for some drinks and snacks. See you tonight!
