We're offering Drupal 7 Module Development for the last time! The workshop is January 26th and 27th in Waltham, MA from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Our January meetup will be "show and tell" ...roughly 10-20 minute presentations on anything you have worked on recently (or not) that you'd like to tell the group about; a website, how you did a particular feature on a site, a tool you like, etc. If you'd like to present, post in the comments if possible.
Our next WMass Drupal Group meeting will be Thursday, December 15, 4pm
at Last Call Media:
136 West St., Suite 01 in Northampton, MA. https://lastcallmedia.com/
Partly due to a conflict later in the day, trying something different where we start early and do a "work together" session for an hour or two, answering each others questions that we might have - so come work and bring questions.
If there are no questions, we can dive into this agenda topic:
Desktop environment comparison: MAMP, WAMP, Acquia, Kalabox, Vagrant, Docker, Other?
...or anything else folks want to talk about.
NERD creates positive and supportive learning opportunities for people who work, or want to work in web and related technology. Too many smart, passionate people have been traditionally excluded from tech careers, and we're going to change that.
Each year we hold our annual NERD Summit. Learn with our local tech community at a free conference of talks, workshops, coding challenges, food, and fun!
Please join us! Save the Date!
