triDUG October Meeting & Presentations

  • October 14, 2009 · 6:30 PM
  • The Park Research Center

When Wednesday, October 14th, 2009 6:30 pm - 9:30pm Where The Park Research Center 104 T.W. Alexander Drive Building 18, Room #1809 RTP, NC Google Map More Info (PDF) This Month's Topic: Lightning Talks! This is anyone and everyone's opportunity to give a short 5 - 10 minute presentation on any Drupal-related topic of their choice! We should be able to handle 6 - 10 presentations. Your presentation can be as simple as sharing a Drupal-epiphany you've had or as complex as giving a tutorial for some Drupal-trick you've learned. Remember, even if you feel that you are not a very advanced Drupal user, anything that you can share from your experience will help someone in the group. If you have an idea for a presentation, please comment on this event and let us know about it! If you'd rather just show up and spontaneously present, that is OK too. Why are we doing this? A huge part of why Drupal is a successful open-source CMS is because of the community and especially the ability and willingness of community members to share their knowledge and help each other solve problems. We want to foster this willingness to help in everyone in our group, and we want everyone to realize that even with the lowest, most n00bish level of Drupal-knowledge, your experiences with Drupal are unique and you do have something to contribute back to the Drupal community! In Addition - The organizers of the group will be discussing with everyone the "future" of our group. We will be discussing what our plans are for future months' meetings, what our over-arching goals are for the group and we will be trying to get ideas and input from the community about what you all would like to see the group become.

    The presentations were generally informative and well presented. Personally I find myself not liking times when two persons are speaking across the room about a topic I'm not interested in. My idea is that at the beginning of the meetup, anyone with module or function specific questions write them on the white board. Then after presentations everyone can get together in groups to discuss these items concurrently. Just my 2 pennies :)

    I really, really want to come this time. I'd be glad to talk too, but I can't stay for 3 hours!

    Looking forward to this meetup. I've spent quite a bit of time (more then I care to admit) working with FEEDAPI and the Embedded Media Field turning Image content,video content & text content into feeds that are then turned into individual nodes. I may be able to help those who are stuck on this.

    I like talking. Maybe I'll give a presentation coming from the POV of a non-programmer / non-graphic designer who is 10 months into using Drupal. Not to teach anyone about Drupal necessarily, but to enlighten 'computer geeks' (I use that term with utmost respect) as top the road traveled by those who only have HTML/CSS background.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
