Druapl 7 Release Party and the Hong Kong Drupal User Group

Thank you for everyone attending our Drupal 7 Release Party by Hong Kong Drupal User Group at 2011-01-07. We had around 40 attendants, which was almost 3 times of our normal HKDUG meetup! More photos can be found in here and Flickr!

The party was started with a Drupal 7 slideshow and video by Dave Hansen-Lange, and Edison Wong gave a brief review of Drupal 7 Installation (ppt, pdf), Drupal 7 core improvement quick review (ppt, pdf) and Drupal 7 3rd party modules upgrade status (ppt, pdf). We also had an active Q&A section and shared for some key question about upgrade from Drupal 6 to 7, too.

Moreover, within the Drupal 7 3rd party modules upgrade status section, Edison Wong compare both Drupal 6 and 7 functionality with a custom installation profile, which start develop since BarCamp HK 2010. This installation profile is now available for public download. Please feel free to download and comment with your idea :-)

Finally, we are scheduling for next HKDUG meetup on February 24. Hope to meet you soon!

P.S. Oooh! An additional meetup for HKDUG newcomers on January 28! Don't miss this chance and let's meet with other Hong Kong Drupal fans :-)
