A group for Drupal users in southern Ontario, mainly from Kitchener, Waterloo, as well as Cambridge, Guelph and surrounding areas.

Who

All Drupal enthusiasts are welcome to join us for discussion and demonstration of topics for beginners and beyond.

Topics range from implementation examples and demonstrations to tutorials and workshops to round-tables, question and answers and panel discussions.

Meetings are held monthly, except for July, August and December. Attendance is free. We meet on the third Thursday of each month, from 19:00 to 21:00.

Where

The meetings are held at The Working Centre which is located at 58 Queen St. S. Kitchener, Ontario.
