Pasadena / San Gabriel Valley Drupal Meetup

End the month with some fun and Drupal at the San Gabriel Valley Drupal Meetup at Pasadena City College on Thursday, April 25, 2013 from 6-8pm!

The meetup this month will include both Users Helping Users, which is a chance for members of the community to help and be helped by others with whatever questions and problems they're having with Drupal; and Lightning Talks, which are brief, 5-minute long presentations on any topic related to Drupal.

Please note that while Users Helping Users is not designed to be a replacement for bona fide consulting from a Drupal professional that there are plenty of Drupal experts and professionals who attend our meetups and sometimes they need help, too!

Do you have a presentation or job announcement that you'd like to share with the group? Is there a topic about something you'd like to see a presentation on? Leave a comment at http://groups.drupal.org/node/295838#comments to let the organizers and attendees know what you're interested in.

Users Helping Users

The meetup this month will include both Users Helping Users, which is a chance for members of the community to help and be helped by others with whatever questions and problems they're having with Drupal; and Lightning Talks, which are brief, 5-minute long presentations on any topic related to Drupal.

Agenda

Our meetups follow a basic format and start off with Drupal news and announcements, local job announcements, raffle prizes and full-length presentations. As always, we'll have community Q&A, during which time anyone in attendance can ask questions, divine answers from the crowd and give brief, 5-10 minute-long presentations known as lightning talks.

After the meetup, we'll finish off the night with more networking and a Drupal After Dark at 8pm. We may stay at Intelligentsia or over to Jake's or Lucky Baldwin's for something stronger. Even if you can't make it to the meetup, going to the Drupal After Dark is a great way to meet your fellow Drupal community friends and colleagues. Join us!

    This is a very well organized and informative session. We got a good mix of senior developers and new comers and some in between. It is a pretty good turn out with 11 people considering it is in Pasadena right around rush hours. People are just terrific, very friendly and ready to help others. Feels like I have moved forward by leaps and bounds. Thanks everyone! Christefano got an amazing newbie friendly random generator for the ruffle prize, all us new comers got a prize :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
