    The meetup was great.

    We should schedule another one soon, perhaps every two weeks?

    Is there another weeknight that would work better?

      I could easily do monday or tuesdays.

      If mondays work better, SPEAK UP!

    As a product manager and developer, yet new to Drupal, I've learned more tonight from Jeremy (and others), in only 2 hours, than from weeks of my
    own independent research. This meetup group is an essential kick-starter in Drupal development and an indispensable resource for all of my Drupal projects. Jeremy provides best practices and strategy, and lends his years of experience with Drupal, including his learning points from past mistakes.
    Jeremy has invited me to lend my own knowledge to the group, to provide a seminar on Drupal Gardens and Acquia Drupal at an upcoming meetup.

      It was a pleasure to hold such an engaging discussion in the meetup, Neil. Let me know when you will be around to present DrupalGardens and Acquia ISP services.

    Before you go and buy a new Apple or PC laptop, be advised that your OSS CMS Drupal group organizer buys and sells used 15" Mac Book Pro laptops regularly.

    We have some available now for $750 - $950, depending upon memory and year.

    New, MacBook Pro Laptops cost $2500+....

    Feel free to share this with your friends!

    Not selling for profit... just providing a service to this Meetup group.
