Ottawa

Welcome to the Drupal Ottawa User Group. We will use this group to develop the Drupal community in Ottawa, to plan local events (DrupalCamps, informal get-togethers, etc.) and to share success stories and planned / completed drupal implementations. Public servants (this is Ottawa after all) interested in deploying bilingual / Common Look & Feel compliant governmental web sites will find colleagues in this group facing the same challenges related to the introduction of drupal in the federal government.

It’s been pretty silent from the Ottawa Drupal Association as of late. Other priorities have taken up time and changed direction for the board members.

That said, the current board has served it’s two year term and it’s time to get some fresh, excited, and motivated people to lead the organization.

This is officially a call for nominations for the new Board of Directors of the Ottawa Drupal Association (ODA).

EVENT DATE CHANGE

We are moving back the 2017 Drupal North Summit to August 25th-27th.

We’ve made this change as we realized the original July date was not the ideal timing for the event. Out of consideration, respect, and in support for other Drupal events in the general region, we have chosen to pick an alternative date.

We know it’s always a challenge with the community growing so fast and with events such as these Summits, Camps, and Cons, popping up all over the world, we can’t appease everyone and there may be some closely timed events. But, we are going to try our best!
