This group discusses the subject matter of book, points out the errors in the book and discusses the differences between Drupal 6 and Drupal 7. New members are always welcome! This study group also discusses how to write modules, the Drupal API, what is a hook. The subject matter of the book is well suited for module development. We will also attempt to create one module during the 27 weeks we are meeting. We have a wiki to record meeting notes and discussions at http://groups.drupal.org/node/235103.

Our meetups follow a basic format and start off with Drupal news and announcements, local job announcements, breakout sessions, raffle prizes and full-length presentations.
As always, we'll also have community Q&A, during which time anyone in attendance can ask questions, divine answers from the crowd and give brief, 5-10 minute-long presentations known as lightning talks. We'll finish off the night with more networking and a Drupal After Dark at 9:00pm.

About High Performance Drupal
What is the High Performance Drupal meetup about? The "high performance" part of the name is a catch-all to describe Drupal scalability, performance and benchmarking but we also discuss hosting, infrastructure, deployment, monitoring and highly repeatable processes. Also, this meetup has been held at coffeeshops in the past and the addition of caffeine makes our meetings feel as if they go faster and faster as the night goes on.
This is an meetup that focuses exclusively on advanced topics and there will not be a Users Helping Users portion to the evening.Read more
