Our program kicks off at Droplabs on Monday, July 22, 2013. It will be held on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month (between 7-9pm) through Monday, November 25, 2013. Optional lab hours will be held at Droplabs prior to each Monday session from 6-7pm, as well as for a few hours on Saturday afternoons.

Drupal book For courseware, we're using the book, Drupal 7 Module Development, as well as Build a Module.com videos and other materials, including code from the Examples project and curriculum from supporting Drupal training companies.

Sound interesting? See http://droplabs.net/modbootcamp for all the information we could think of, including a FAQ and the link to the boot camp application form.

This is an ambitious program that's for the Drupal community, by the Drupal community, and we want to be sure to get it right, so be sure to tell us as much as you can when applying, including feedback in the "Feedback" section. Space is limited and applications that are light on details are less likely to be accepted.

New to Drupal or the SGV Drupal meetup? See http://groups.drupal.org/node/295838#comment-918913 for notes from a recent meeting. Here's a testimonial from a happy attendee:

This is a very well organized and informative session. We got a good mix of senior developers and new comers and some in between. It is a pretty good turn out with 11 people considering it is in Pasadena right around rush hours. People are just terrific, very friendly and ready to help others. Feels like I have moved forward by leaps and bounds. Thanks everyone!
