The Western Massachusetts Drupal User Group has been formed to create positive and supportive learning opportunities for people who work, or want to work in the Drupal Content Management System throughout the pioneer valley and beyond.

We operate an irc channel on Freenode: #drupal-westernma.
This Users Group meeting is Thursday, April 2 at 2pm in ISB 241H.
Meetings are open to anyone interested in Drupal and not limited to the UMass Amherst community. Bring problems, questions and ideas. Beginners welcome. Offers to make presentations are welcome.

There have been recent conversations concerning the acronym for New England Drupalcamp, and our goals for the camp. The intent has always been to create an event that promotes a greater sense of community amongst Drupal users across New England. However, we learned recently that we were jeopardizing the same sense of community we were hoping to foster with our old acronym. After listening to the concerns put forth by community members, it was time for a change.
Moving forward, New England Drupalcamp is to be known as NEDcamp.Read more
Hack for Western Mass (http://hackforwesternmass.org/) is coming up again: June 6-8 in Springfield (venue TBD).
Like last year, we're one of over 100 events happening across the country for the National Day of Civic Hacking. During the weekend technologists, designers, data nerds, and other creative types will team up with area nonprofits to work on technical challenges. 100 hackers worked with 9 non-profits on everything from a mobile food bank finder to a Scratch app that models how fish are helped over dams at the Holyoke Fishway.Read more
