User group meeting

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

Time: 19:00 to 21:00
Location: The Working Centre, 58 Queen Street S., Kitchener

The summer vacation is over, and this means that the Waterloo Region Drupal Users Group meetings are to resume.

For a long time, Drupal has been a self contained system, with almost all components developed in-house. Before Drupal 8, we've had calls to 'get off the island', and explore what is out there.

So, for our September meeting, we will do just that ...

The web is an ever changing landscape of technologies and frameworks. The important thing to distinguish is what the right tool for the job. Laravel is one of the forerunners in the market of PHP frameworks.

Join us to learn why many people are using Laravel to be able to solve their problems effectively and efficiently. Learn about the different capabilities of the framework. Including: The Service Container, Routing and the eloquent ORM.

Our speaker for September is Colin Mills, who is a student at Conestoga College and just recently had an internship at Vehikl a local web consultancy focusing on Laravel.

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.
