Join our monthly meeting of the Waterloo Region Drupal User Group meetup.

Date: Thursday, February 16th, 2017
Time: 19:00 to 21:00
Location: The Working Centre, 58 Queen Street S., Kitchener

Our speaker for February is me (Liam McDermott).

The topic is: Composer: what is it and how should Drupalers use it?

From how to install Composer for use with Drupal, to common usage patterns, this
talk will offer an introduction to Composer and a head start on how to use it.

Composer describes itself as a, 'Dependency Manager for PHP.' We'll talk about
what that means, why a dependency manager is useful, how Composer is used by Drupal core and many contributed modules (for Drupal 7 & 8), and navigate the ways Composer is becoming an essential tool for all Drupal developers and site builders.

Audience: site builders, developers, and anyone who thinks they may need to use (or just know a bit about) Composer in the future.

Meetings for the Waterloo Region Drupal Users Group happen on the third Thursday of each month (except for July, August and December). The meetings are held at The Working Centre, at 58 Queen Street South in Kitchener, between 19:00 and 21:00.

If you have a Drupal related topic, or showcasing a web site or a module that you built with Drupal, please contact us, and we will arrange for a talk.
