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

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

For our June meeting, Andrew Berry and Khalid Baheyeldin will be presenting all you need to know to use this marvellous tool.Read more

I'm a Drupal freelance programmer in Kitchener-Waterloo looking to build a network of great Canadian Drupal theme designers (individuals, not entire companies).
D.org profile: http://drupal.org/user/473174
If you are interested in working with me to create websites, please add your comments to this page.
How it would work is, if I come across a project that needs both back-end and front-end development, I will fully develop the backend and then ask you to create the Drupal theme and if they have a PSD, arrange the theme to match their desired look.

Two years or so, we had a talk about the Semantic Web by Stéphane Corlosquet, who was one of the contributors to Drupal core in the area of Semantic Web.

Schema.org is a joint initiative from the major search engines to build a collection of schemas that webmasters can use to markup their HTML pages.Read more
