The Chicago Drupal community has a long and colorful history. Itis one of the most vibrant around the country, and possibly the world. We have been long time attendees and members of the Chicago Drupal Meetup Group.
We see a need in the Chicago community for an advanced Drupal meetup. Somewhere we can get together and talk about solving the problems developers face. In addition we wanted to help ramp people up to contribute to Drupal core using the Drupal Ladder program. Finally, we wanted people to have access to a broad range of Drupal related content and support Drupalers of all levels to attend the CADUG.
Our primary goals:
Supportagrowing and diverse Drupal communityin Chicago
Focus on advanced topics for Drupal architecture, development, and DevOps
Help developers extending Drupal into application and product building
Help coordinate local sprints and hackathons for larger contributions
Help contribute to open data initiatives within Chicago
Help support local groups for other open source communities
Although the CADUG is geared towards advanced Drupalists, we enourage those from all areas to attend and learn with us. Our goal is to compliment existing meetups and create an open community among local professionals working with Drupal as their vocation.
