If you are into Drupal, you will be into CDMUG's Spring Jam. Our goal is to bring everyone together for open communication, education, and most importantly fun. Designers, developers, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, Drupal development companies and non-profit organizations.

All skill levels are welcomed. We have presentations for beginners, themers and advanced developers. During the day, sit in on seven Drupal 7 presentations from industry experts, and into the evening get ready to burn the oil with our BoF (birds of a feather) camp-style marathon until midnight.

Meet other members in the local Drupal community. A great networking opportunity, land a new job, or hire that Drupal guru your company has been looking for. Bring your laptop and plenty of business cards.

Breakfast, lunch, pizza, and beverages are included with admission price. Catering services provided Sashah Ruge of The Chef's Palette.

Did we mention all attendees have a chance to win a trip to Drupalcon San Francisco??
