August 5th Social - Drupal, Drinks and Dries Buytaert

Please note the change in date and meeting location. Instead of our regular program meeting at Matrix, we'll be welcoming a very special guest -- Dries Buytaert -- known internationally as the creator of Drupal, Drupal project lead, CTO of Acquia, and Mollom spam fighter. We're planning an informal meetup while he's in town the evening of Thursday, August 5th, 8 to 10 pm in the upstairs meeting space at Gordon Biersch in midtown. So plan to take the evening to kick back, beat the heat, have a beer with Dries and connect with your Atlanta Drupal community! You can follow Dries on his blog at
http://buytaert.net/... or on Twitter at
http://twitter.com/dr... Bio: Dries Buytaert is the original creator and project lead for the Drupal open source web publishing and collaboration platform. Buytaert serves as president of the Drupal Association, a non-profit organization formed to help Drupal flourish. He is also co-founder and chief technology officer of Acquia, a venture-backed software company that offers products and services for Drupal. Dries is also a co-founder of Mollom, a web service that helps you identify content quality and, more importantly, helps to stop website spam. A native of Belgium, Buytaert holds a PhD in computer science and engineering from Ghent University and a Licentiate Computer Science (MsC) from the University of Antwerp. In 2008, Buytaert was elected Young Entrepreneurs of Tech by BusinessWeek as well as MIT TR 35 Young Innovator.

    Fantastic get-together. A big thanks to Dries (and Matt) for dropping by and sharing their insights on Drupal! It was also great to see attendees from Boone and Asheville, NC.

    Went great. Dries was gracious to be there despite being tired and having a busy day ahead. Lots of good conversations all around. Enjoyed talking with old friends and new.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
