Rather new to coding/web development, I received a Bachelor's in Communications Technology last December, 2013. Although finding this as quite a learning curve, I am eager to find others seeking to advance in Drupal.
Our mission is to help people build better websites using the Drupal content management system (CMS). Drupal is the world's most popular enterprise open source CMS. Drupal is not just another free open source site builder, it powers some of the world's top websites such as whitehouse.gov, The Economist, Sony / BMG's music sites and Twitter's developer community.
Its' popularity is derived from its power and flexibility. With the proper Drupal training, you can build practically any kind of website. This is where the user group can help.
We have two monthly meetups, one for beginners looking to start learning Drupal and one for advanced developers and designers.
