Can Drupal outdo native applications?

This is part of an existential struggle to keep an open web and Internet.

Forces wanting to close and divide the web/Internet are legion: Big ISPs and film studios who fight against Net Neutrality; native app pushers; Facebook; et al.

To keep an open web/Internet we need to preserve Net Neutrality and to produce many good web apps to replace the flood of native apps.

Meeting tonight!

Don't forget that our regular monthly SeaDUG meeting is tonight. We're going to talk about goals for 2017—what we want to learn and how we want to improve this year—both collectively and individually. We'll also help anyone who is planning to submit a session for next month's PNW Drupal Summit to prepare their submission.

SeaDUG presentation ideas

At last week's meeting, I showed a list of 50 ideas for short (15-to-20-minute) presentations for SeaDUG meetings in 2017. The idea is that we can pick 3 or 4 of them each month for someone to present to the group. I created a wiki page to keep track of the topics. If there is a topic that's not on the list, that you would like to learn about or can present on, please add it to the page. Topics for February were selected at January's meeting. I will update the list to indicate them.
