It's time! The very first meeting of the East Bay Drupal Users Group is happening after work on Wednesday, February 27th. The topic is Drupal Content Staging, and we have a great feature presentation by the legendary Dave Cohen. While he is perhaps best known as the author of the Drupal for Facebook module (http://drupal.org/project/fb) Dave has also done terrific work on many different aspects of Drupal development. For this, the first official EBDUG Meeting, Dave will present an updated version of his talk: "Drupal Staging Problem (revisited)." Come learn how Dave has crafted a technique involving intrigue, daring, and a few carefully crafted scripts to attack "the Drupal Staging Problem." Read more about it here: http://ebdug.org/sessions/101-drupal-staging
For our case study, Andrew Ward of Kalamuna will be showing how his team used Panopoly to create a site for a university department with features far beyond what you would expect from its modest budget: http://ebdug.org/sessions/101-case-kalamuna The sponsor for this meeting is Blisstering Solutions (http://www.blisstering.com/) - Thanks for supporting the local Drupal community! Please come on down to the beautiful new Tech Liminal space and help us get this thing off the ground. Tech Liminal is on Clay Street between 11th and 12th. Easy freeway access and plenty of free parking at that time if you want to drive, or just a block from the 12th St Downtown Oakland BART station if you'd prefer to take mass transit. It's in the Ask building, right next to Specialty's on the ground floor facing Clay Street. The session will be recorded and posted to the site afterwards; it may even be webcast live if we can figure out the technology in time! Be there at 6:30 to be a part of the opening day excitement. There will be prizes, surprises, and a flyover by The Blue Angels, plus pony rides for the kids. Or...maybe there will be just some discussion about Drupal, but that's still a good time if you like Drupal!
