First meeting of 2012 will be a focus on jQuery with Drupal. We will start by covering the basics of adding the library to your site, popular modules to get started, and finish by showing how to create your own plug-ins for Drupal.
Duo Consulting opens doors at 6:00pm for attendees to arrive, socialize, and hang out before meetups. We try for presentations to officially start by 7:00pm. Comment your RSVP with full name and bring photo ID to gain authorized access to Duo's office downtown.
