No meeting on 1/25, further discussion at the next Happy Hour

It's a good time for a check-in: there's talk of combining the JAM with the monthly meetup. I think it's a good idea to reduce the overall number of commitments that an active community member makes, but I also think it's important to ensure that new users always have a place to go. Now is a great time to focus on keeping up the good things that the TC Drupal community is doing well, without losing sight of attracting new participation.

Drupal for Good - Twin Cities Style

As many of you are aware, our friend and colleague Matthew Tift has been writing a lot about the Drupal Community and most recently, Drupal as a Political Act.

He has also been having discussions with a number of people about re-emphasizing the idea of Drupal as a social good and encouraging more thought on how the Drupal community is doing things to make the world a better place. I've had a couple of such discussions with him and he's inspired me to think more about these topics.

I'm new. :)

So believe it or not, I have been working with Drupal since 2013, and I never even knew this group met up or existed. I really wish I had known before!

I just wanted to say hi, and that I plan to join in with some of the Twin Cities Drupal events as my schedule allows. Excited to be able to talk with others face to face. I'm one of the owners of a small(very small) business here in Minneapolis known as Twin Cities Leather & Latte, located on Hennepin Ave S and 27th Street.
