Drupal Providence is a quarterly meetup focused on all things Drupal & Open Source.
We host featured presentations, lightning talks, development challenges, open source contribution nights and an open forum to just talk Drupal. Our goal is to bring our local Drupal community together to network and collaborate.
Join Drupal Providence in August as we welcome Adam Bergstein & Matt Glaman to share with us some highlights from Simplytest.me resent complete rewrite. During this presentation, they will share the history of simplytest.me and the steps taken to revitalize the project. They will highlight how this vision and execution of work has aligned to the teams values and helps better achieve the projects mission. Together we will review the new architecture of the site and some key improvements made to improve the service. Finally, they will share the first official roadmap and present the future priorities and quarterly delivery targets of the project.
