The Chicago Drupal Meet Up Group is proud to present at least two featured presentations about the hottest Drupal topics each month. We have room for 75 people and all skill levels are welcomed. If you are brand new to Drupal we recommend attending one of our free monthly training workshops.

Gary Koehl will be presenting....My First Team Based Drupal Project...the development process of my first team based Drupal project from start to finish.  The presentation will include a look at how the deployment environment was created with the help of Drush, and how it tied in SVN to the project.  The Features module will also be discussed and how we handled some of its limitations.  Gary will also briefly touch on how we used the migrate module.

Joe Moses will be presenting....Swimming in Commerce.....go beyond a quick dive-in to show you how to stay afloat, navigate and effectively use the Commerce module(s). He’ll explain its features and show you how to use it from a site builder/admin perspective. To bring it all together, he’ll include a couple case studies and show examples of some sites running in the wild.

Tim Madden will be presenting...Taming Git...continuing the talk from last month with focus on using git itself -- and drush too! (We will not go through the slides again, but if you missed them you can review them here: )


Almost every CDMUG presentation is recorded and now available online @

If you are not able to physically attend, join us virtually in our #cdmug IRC chat room on freenode. Members hang out in the chat room on a daily basis even when meetups are not happening. If you are unfamiliar with IRC view feel free to utilize our web based chat client @

All meetups will be in traditional CDMUG fashion. No dress code, relaxed attitudes, open ideas, laptop encouraged, remember business cards, and we will probably go for a beer afterward.

    Topics presented at CDMUG always reveal the usefulness of an aspect of Drupal that you may not have gotten to yet. I have to take a better look at drush and consider how best to use git with Drupal. Also, got a really good primer on how to build an e-commerce site.

    If anyone wants to take a little jaunt between work and meetup, today (and Thursdays all summer) there will be a food truck meetup at the old Ethyl's bar in the West Loop with 5 or 6 trucks of delicious. Check out for details and let me know if you plan on going.
