Presentations and lightning Talks

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.

Users Helping Users

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!

Agenda

Our meetups follow a basic format and start off with Drupal news and announcements, local job announcements 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 begin at 6:00

Comments

Good meetup

Hi,
We had a continuing issue with gaining access to the meetup, and we were missing an HDMI cable so were limited but it was great conversation and users helping users.

The attendance has been a little lacking for these meetups. I think we will suspend the August meetup because it is so close to DrupalCampLA. But would like some feedback on where to go from here. Is there a better night? Maybe it is just that the Drupal needs of the SGV are being met in other areas. Let me know here.

Great seeing John, Steve and Jeff last night.
