Upcoming Drupal Camps and Cons

Just a quick update to those of you who do not participate in the Twin Cities Drupal Slack channel. There are a couple of out of town events coming up that some of us will be attending and there may be ride share / room mate opportunities available to anyone else who wishes to come with.

MidCamp is happening in Chicago in a few weeks.
https://www.midcamp.org/

It would appear that there are at least 5-6 people who plan to drive to and from Chicago for Midcamp, so we will likely be taking two cars and would have room for more.

December Happy Hour ????

There was a little confusion about our meetup plans for December, so we never officially announced Happy Hour this month. However, it was posted on Meetup.com and some folks may just assume it's happening - so, I'm hanging out at BauHaus Brew Labs to have beers with any Drupal fans that show up. I expect at least a few others.

If you are in the area, come on by for a beer and a little Drupal talk.

See you soon.

I am just passing along this announcement about an upcoming hack-a-thon in the Twin Cities - at the historic Union Depot. I will not be able to attend this hack-a-thon, but I have attended several similar events in the past and very much enjoyed them. I would attend if I could.

I would love to see Drupal better represented at local civic hacking events. This is a great opportunity for us to engage with other developers, learn about other technology and encourage the use of Drupal as a solution for important problems in our community.
