    Although the published agenda didn't happen, I got a lot out of the meeting, perhaps because I'm a newbie. I appreciated hearing people weigh in on Drupal in the real world. Sometimes when you research something just by websurfing you'll get steered in the wrong direction because everything is rose-colored. I appreciated the different viewpoints on the state of Drupal, and the wide range of discussion topics. Thank-you to all the advanced Drupallers who sat through the more basic presentations.

I am very comfortable with and have a popular math publishing plugin called wpmathpub. I would be happy to share my experience as I move from Wordpress to Drupal.

    Best regards,
