Arranging local meetups is also up for grabs. . . .

If anyone intends to take part in a local (Buffalo, NY area) WNYDUG in-person meetup, please respond here.

The past cycle of meetings did not have a "quorum" to speak of, but the final Wed. of the month at 7 p.m. still seems to be viable at the venue we have been using (SPoT Coffee, Transit Rd. in Clarence).

Again, please reply here if you are interested in attending or taking over the scheduling of these local meetups.

The February virtual meetup scheduling is up for grabs. . . .

Our second-Wednesday-of-the-month-at-7-p.m. Google Hangout this month falls on an evening when I have another event to attend.

Anyone who is interested in coordinating this month is welcome to go ahead. I can share the master document that contains all the social media presence guidelines.

Based on demand, we can schedule the March Hangout at that time. Both the online and in-person meetups need some rejuvenation to reach a minimum number of participants. Please reply to this if you are in favor of continuing either or both meetings.

Thanks,

-John

Have a safe and happy holiday season.

A look inside a typical groups.drupal.org local community meetup. . . .

Premise: Outside of DrupalCons and camps, g.d.o user group meetups happen to be fully qualified, regular events maybe worth dosing a bit more followup coverage.

In general, published meeting reviews are not just handy for their own attendees to have but also benefit everyone connected via the web. Where to post the coverage is up to each group; this post is only a thinking-out-loud prototype to offer background and then some specific details on a meetup that just took place.

WNYDUG Inaugural “mini-camp” Recap and Format Proposal

Précis

The Western New York State Drupal User Group https://groups.drupal.org/western-new-york coined the term “mini-camp” for its one-day, nontraditionally located event that was first held on a Saturday in late April, 2013. The benefits of a lower planning overhead, 11 a.m.–5 p.m. session schedule, and unanimous thumbs up of the venue and program inspired us to propose this format as an adjunct to Drupalcamps and Drupalcons.

Read up on the Drupal Community Cultivation Grants here. . . .

The folks running this grant program are providing a real amenity to groups like ours.

If you have a locally-based idea that would merit funding, please summarize it and bring it up here. Things like novel DrupalCamp supplements, taking our show on the road, introducing students to Drupal, etc.
