University of Minnesota

The University of Minnesota Drupal User Group works to share knowledge and resources, find solutions to shared challenges, and enable effective use of Drupal at University of Minnesota campuses across Minnesota. Staff, students, and faculty are all welcome here.

We will strive to be a bridge, not a silo, and encourage participation and sharing with others in our communities, be they geographical (Twin Cities at g.d.o) or professional (Higher Education).

Beverages and light food stuff will be provided. Bring your own games (but don't worry, we'll have plenty).

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.

    Twin Cities Drupal Government People

    I recently attended the Drupal4Gov BOF at DrupalCon Baltimore and was told that government folks are more likely to attend to Drupal events that have specific content targeted at them. Is this true?

    I am curious if there are any government folks who use Drupal and would be interested in a 1/2 to full day Drupal 4 Government Summit at Twin Cities Drupal camp this year.

    This is not an official announcement, just a probe to find out if there is any interest in the local community. This is something that I would be interest in facilitating, if there is sufficient interest.
