Drupal + Startups = AWESOME!

Are you looking to build the next BIG web-based startup?

The bad news: 90% of startups fail.

The good news: Lean Startup methodology can help you to systematically find success (or fail faster and cheaper).

At this session we’ll discuss why most startups fail, how to do it better with Lean Startup and, of course, why Drupal is an ideal platform for building a web-based startup application.

(FYI, I'm going to give this same presentation at Drupal Camp Fox Valley on October 5th. So, I'd really appreciate your feedback, criticism and comments on it in order to sharpen my presentation giving skillz! ;-))

The best food at a Meetup!

As always, Steve will bring some amazing home cookin'! We might not be the biggest Meetup, but we have the best food!

Bring your problems & successes:

Are you working on a Drupal site and hit a problem? Bring it to the meetup and we'll try to help you solve it!

Did you just create something awesome with Drupal? Or learn something cool? Show it off during a 5 minute lightning talk.

    Oh, and a couple more random things...

    Here's the issue from the Backdrop queue talking about how Backdrop won't be API compatible with either D7 or D8: https://github.com/backdrop/backdrop-issues/issues/65

    Also, we didn't have a chance to talk about next month! If anyone has any ideas or requests for the topic, please let us know.

    I also promised someone that I'd upload the video (which actually I don't usually do - usually I just record my presentations so I can watch them and try to get better). So, I'll post that too when it finally finishes uploading. :-)

    See ya next month!
