6:30pm - Drupal Presentation I:
Topic: Tokaido
by: Michael Richardson
Tokaido is an automation platform for Drupal development on Mac. If you've used tools like Lando or DDev, it will be familiar but it goes much further than just providing a local environment.

In addition to spawning production-grade hosting environments on your using Docker, Tokaido automates daily dev tasks so you don't have to waste time doing it all yourself.

With Tokaido, it's fast and easy to:

- Launch new Drupal projects in a single command
- Start environments against existing projects
- Build and run test infrastructure with Nightwatch
- Create and restore local database snapshots
- Upgrade or downgrade PHP, MySQL, or MariaDB
- Enable or disable add-on services like Memcache, Solr, and Redis

In this talk, Mike Richardson, co-creator of Tokaido, will show us how easy Tokaido is to use and why it's worth making the switch.

7:15pm - Around-the-Room Intro's

Three elements: (1) Name; (2) Drupal role & context in ten words or less; & (3) something interesting in Drupal or other webtech that you've been working on lately.
