Downtown Drupal Meetup + Droplabs Holiday Party + Food Drive for the LA Food Bank! December 16, 2013

Start: 
2013-12-16 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles

We're scheduling an extra special Downtown Drupal meetup this Monday, December 16, 2013, and you're invited! This time we're combining a brief Drupal meetup with presentations and raffle prizes with our annual holiday party and food drive.

As we did at our award-winning holiday parties in 2011 and 2012, we're organizing a food drive for the LA Food Bank. Our goal is to beat our combined proceeds from 2011 and 2012 and raise at least $1090! See https://droplabs.net/node/382#food-drive for details.

This event is being hosted by Droplabs (@Droplabs), a Drupal-friendly coworking space, classroom and computer lab in Downtown Los Angeles.

We're the leading low-cost coworking space in the Greater Los Angeles Area and have programs, services and workspaces that are uniquely designed for entrepreneurs, freelancers and remote workers.

Drupal Meetup

Our meetup begins at 7pm and follows a basic format with Drupal news and announcements, local job announcements, 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.

For any changes to our agenda for the evening, stay tuned to this meetup announcement or click the "Sign up" button at https://groups.drupal.org/node/387878#signup (or both!) to be notified when the agenda has been updated.

Holiday Party

Even if you can't make it to the meetup, you're welcome to join us at 8pm after all the raffle prizes, job announcements and presentations for our annual holiday party. We'll be mingling and networking for most of the evening, and the party is potluck-style so bring something to share that you like to eat or drink. Post a comment at https://groups.drupal.org/node/387878#comments to let others know what you're thinking of bringing.

Food Drive for the LA Food Bank

We're organizing another food drive for the LA Food Bank, a 501c3 non-profit which distributes food to over 640 charitable agencies including Midnight Mission and the Boys & Girls Club. Here are some good ideas of what to bring:

Feels like I have moved forward by leaps and bounds. Thanks everyone!
