Come on down to the Denver/Boulder Drupal Meetup for our next meeting at AppliedTrust!
This month we have a great presentation by Alex Knoll (arknoll) and Tim Whitney (timodwhit) giving an overview of how New Media builds Drupal sites using profiles, drush make, Features, Migrate, and drupal-lamp (https://github.com/newmediadenver/drupal-lamp).
I'm very excited about this myself as I've been having issues with my local development environment since upgrading to Mavericks. With this tool, setting up an environment for module development or site-building is very easy.
As always, there will be drinks and food provided by AppliedTrust.
If you are interested in speaking at a future Boulder DBUG meetup, please fill out this form (http://atrust.com/dbug).
