We'll discuss planned features, creating a dynamic user experience, and the value of mentorship. Using CharDUG as the pilot group, we'll review what those in the Drupal community would like to see in a mentorship program.

CharDUG is Charlotte's Drupal User Group. We meet once a month to host presentations, socialize, and discuss all things related to the Drupal content management framework.

"Drupal is content management software. It's used to make many of the websites and applications you use every day. Drupal has great standard features, like easy content authoring, reliable performance, and excellent security. But what sets it apart is its flexibility; modularity is one of its core principles. Its tools help you build the versatile, structured content that dynamic web experiences need.

It's also a great choice for creating integrated digital frameworks. You can extend it with any one, or many, of thousands of add-ons. Modules expand Drupal's functionality. Themes let you customize your content's presentation. Distributions are packaged Drupal bundles you can use as starter-kits. Mix and match these components to enhance Drupal's core abilities. Or, integrate Drupal with external services and other applications in your infrastructure. No other content management software is this powerful and scalable.

The Drupal project is open source software. Anyone can download, use, work on, and share it with others. It's built on principles ( like collaboration, globalism, and innovation. It's distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License ( There are no licensing fees (, ever. Drupal will always be free."
