Hey there North Texas Drupalers, and welcome to Drupal in 2015!

We'll be kicking off the new year in February (why be like most people and do it in January??) with two great presentations.

First off, we'll be learning How To Integrate Angular JS (https://angularjs.org/) into Drupal. AngularJS is "HTML enhanced for web apps!" Commonly referred to as Angular, it's a lightweight Javascript open-source web application framework maintained by Google and a community of individual developers and corporations to address many of the challenges encountered in developing single-page applications. Come learn how to make your Drupal sites do more better with Angular!

Then, we will take a look at Structural SEO in Drupal. Does your Drupal site have a unique, properly sized and keyword-focused page title and description for every page? (including Views-based pages) And why does that matter so much? Have you implemented Schema.org microdata so Google better understands the meaning of your content? When your posts are shared to Facebook or Google+, does it show the picture and description you wanted? Are you submitting a valid and populated XML Sitemap to the search engines daily? How can you tell if Google thinks you are doing all of the above? Come learn how to optimize the structural elements of your Drupal website to optimize your on-page SEO - all with just Drupal contrib modules and configuration - no programming!

We'll be announcing the March meetup soon, and it's all about the Drupal 8.

We will be back at the Addison TreeHouse (http://www.addisontreehouse.com/) - thanks for their continuing generosity. Look for a sign for Dovie's restaurant on the west side of Midway and turn in there, drive to the back left and look for building 14681. Enter and go up the stairs. We'll be in the Treehouse Room.
