Coming off yet another successful DrupalCamp Florida (thank you, volunteers!), a few of us were talking about how we can best reinvest some of the leftover funds we have from the camp back intp the community.
Perhaps the most important thing we can do is help grow and strengthen the Florida Drupal community.
With this in mind, we're happy to (re-)announce that if you are a Florida Drupal meetup organizer, you can request reimbursement for expenses to help grow and strengthen your local community.
We're willing to pay for things like:Read more

Hey Palm Beach, Miami, Sarasota, Tallahassee, and Tampa Drupalers? Where are your meetups?
Ok - maybe that's not a fair question...
I realize that Palm Beach and Tampa have been posting their meetups on meetup.com - but please also cross-post them here as well (Orlando does the same thing...)
How about you, Miami (looking for a new organizer?), Sarasota, and Tallahassee? Let's get things kick-started!
I am excited to be the track chair for site building at DrupalSouth in Wellington next year and it's time to get your session proposals in!
Site building is the glue that pieces together a Drupal site and everyone has their favourite tools, tips and techniques for achieving requirements. I am also considering sessions around tools and techniques for content editors in this track and am up for hearing some wild ideas from new voices, so don't be afraid to submit a session idea no matter who you are or how new you may be to Drupal.Read more
At last night's Brevard meetup, after an outstanding project management presentation by Robert Lazlo, we discussed future topics at Brevard meetups. Based on that discussion, here is the proposed schedule for the next couple of months:
- Tuesday, July 9 - Responsive menus and navigation - Mike Anello
- Thursday, July 25 - Search API and Facets - Caroline Achee, Git-Flow for Daily Use - Kevin Basarab
- Monday, August 12 - Drupal 8 Preview - Robert Lazlo
- Friday, August 23 - Proposed Florida Drupal Trivia night - more info coming soon.
Erik Bladwin (yes, that's the proper spelling as far as I'm concerned) and I recently took part in a DrupalCon Portland session entitled <a href="https://portland2013.drupal.org/session/making-drupal-meetups-and-events-rock>Making Drupal Meetups and Events Rock. As part of our preparation we, along with the other panelists, set up an online survey about Drupal meetups. One of the more surprising datapoints that came out of it was over 50% of the 161 respondents indicated that meetup.com was how people learned about their meetups. Perhaps we're missing an opportunity to grow the Florida community even more.
I know that in Brevard County, we're not using meetup.com. I'm not sure about the other local meetups around the state, but I think it's time that we make sure that we're all reaching as many Florida Drupaleros as possible.Read more
