TOPICS THIS MONTH:
Drupal News: BADCamp update! Drupal 8 stuff! (its ugly folks), Drupal.org (are you a member?)
We will quickly go over a state of the Union on Drupal 8 and what people are working on before code freeze.
Then its on to...
Commerce Kickstart 2! The crew over at CommerceGuys.com have a full release candidate for the Kickstart 2 distribution. Commerce is ready for prime time! We will be going through a 30 minute walk through of features to show that you can officially give up Ubercart and embrace the power of entities within Drupal. If anyone has done anything with Kickstart or Commerce and would like to share please do!
This month we have some great giveaways provided by Buildamodule.com and Video2Brain.com training videos. Show up before 7 to get a raffle ticket! (and some Pizza!)
Pizza will be provided courtesy of SendGrid. If you have any bulk mail needs, check them out they work great with Drupal's SendGrid Integration module
