  • Needs a location

  • Follow the Druplicon...
  • Searching in Drupal works, but by default is limited by simplicity. First, learn how various modules such as Search API extend Drupal's search options with customizations. Second, witness the awesomeness of Apache Solr for Drupal in all of it glory presented by Lee Mitchell.

    Starting in 2014, we're meeting at a new location with room for more attendees than ever before.  National Association of Realtors (America’s largest trade association) opens their doors at 6:00pm for attendees to arrive, socialize, and hang out before meetups. Location is on Michigan Ave close to the river's bridge and is accessible through main lobby entrance with a visit to front desk. Presentations officially start by 7:00pm. RSVP is required to attend and feel free to bring a friend by registering for up to two guests.

      We apologize for all confusion lately regrading meeutps. If anyone is interested in helping organize or can present on any Drupal related topics, please message me. We're having a fairly difficult time finding help these days.

    Is there page on this group where in I could suggest topics that can be considered for Discussion. I am really looking forward to a meetup wherein we could discuss Event Registration + Commerce system. Somthing like COD.

    I am new to Drupal, however, I can help with a small task if that is possible.

    It's not great having times change last minute, but I think we should all consider the amount of effort that Matthew puts into this single handedly.
    I think instead of complaining it would be more productive for people to make a contribution themselves.

    Please make a comment if date is changed again. It is difficult to make plans for CDMUG when they often change hours before an event.
