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).

GeoCode 2.0

There is a hack-a-thon going on this weekend dealing specifically with geodata. Here is an opportunity to give back to the community using your tech skills. I plan to participate and would love to see other Drupalers attend.

I'm proposed a project, which I'm hoping will give me the opportunity to learn about accessing and creating public API's.
