Why Developers Love:

Speakers: Tom Sliker, SC Drupal User Group President; Will Jackson, Drupal Trainer

Drupal features an amazing collection of features allowing any type of site. Whether your site is a blog, brochure company site, full blown social community, ecommerce shopping site, or an informational site for an organization Drupal is the right tool for the job.
Key features are scalability, stability, performance, and cost. It is Open Source and supports strong search engine optimization out of the box.
Thousands of developers are contributing to Drupal’s core (the main code that makes up Drupal) and there are more than 10,000 modules that have been contributed by the Drupal community which extend Drupal’s functionality.

Welcome to Open Hack Night in Columbia! Open Hack is an event open to current and aspiring developers. We have a meeting every two months, providing developers a chance to mix-and-match three options:

Presentations: We have two presenters talk about two different languages. The presentations are 30-40 minutes each with up to fifteen minutes for questions.

Unconference: Not interested in the topics for tonight's event? Come share what you're passionate about? We'll have 6 unconference slots of ten minutes each. Come drop some knowledge on your fellow devs!

OpenHack: Want time and space to work on something or pair program with someone new? That's cool, grab a spot and a friend and spend some time working together on a project.

After the presentations, bring your favorite board game, Magic deck, or hold a LAN party and hang out with your fellow developers. We'll keep the doors open!

Open Hack Columbia is a collaboration of CETi, Voterheads, and IT-oLogy.

Please register so we have a good idea for food and drinks!
