Welcome to VANDUG!

The Vancouver Drupal Users Group is the local meeting place for Greater Vancouver people interested in Drupal. We were formerly known as the Vancouver League of Drupalers, but that's a long story. We generally meet once a month (typically the 4th Thursday) on a variety of topics, both technical and non-technical. There is no cost to join the group or attend our monthly meetings.

We have a sister group in the Lower Mainland, the Surrey Drupal Users Group that meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Many people are members of both groups.

Modern sites, nowadays, are not just static HTML with content, but also platforms for communicating with other devices and systems (such as mobile devices, other sites, gaming platforms, etc). Decoupling the front-end and back-end of a Drupal site allow us to create a "Headless Drupal".
