Feb 2 UM Drupal Group Meeting

Yesterday the UMass users drupal group met. (Notes from the meeting to be posted here soon.) We had a great turn-out and productive discussions.

  • we spent 5 minutes (more or less) on a bunch of agenda items
  • the items were solicited at the meeting
  • next month at our Feb 2 meet, we plan to focus on rules and components and menus

I hope we also get agenda items on the fly on web usability, accessibility and design at our next meeting. And maybe we can look at one new module (just for fun).

Hope to see you on Feb 2. Thanks to all who attended.
