Vancouver

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.

Twitter and IRC

Hey all -

Just another PSA here, to let everyone know there's now a Twitter account set up if you want to follow for meetup reminders, etc. at http://twitter.com/vandug. The group admins all have access to the password, and if one of us gets fancy, we'll set up some kind of hashtag retweeter system.

DrupalCampPDX Dates

We've picked some tentative dates for the next Portland DrupalCamp: August 22-23, 2009.

So scour your calendars and make sure there aren't any other big tech events that weekend. Obviously any date is going to cause problems for some subset of people but we want to make sure we're not up against another regional DrupalCamp. It'll be close to DrupalCon Paris but hopefully we'll still be able to draw in some other people on the West Coast.

April Meeting Idea

Inspired by events like Launch Party and the like, what do people think of having a night of lightning talks for the April meeting? Say four to six 10 or 15 minute slots for people to come up and talk about something cool, interesting or informative.

Thoughts?

Calgary Open Source Systems Festival

Simple post to promote COSSFEST. Hopefully the Vancouver community can send people to Calgary. Any one wishing to speak contact Shawn Grover (sgrover@open2space.com). I'm already planning to do a site building presentation but given some volume I'm sure we can get a Drupal track going.
