Welcome to the UK group
If you want to advertise or find a job, the use new jobs.drupal.org site.
There are lots of regional groups that organise events and they are great people to get in touch with if you're trying to reach the Drupal community in the UK.
The UK community also has another site with lots of great resources: http://drupal.org.uk/
Drupalers in the UK are a friendly bunch, and we'd love to meet you in person, so why not come along to one of our community run events.
If you are someone that would like to organise events, or you would like to help people that do, have a look at our resources section for information on how we can help.
