This month's meetup will showcase some of the quickest, easiest ways to get a Drupal site up and running. From command line installs to dev desktop to Docker, we will cover how to get started quickly in Drupal.

Topics covered:

- Easy local development with Docker.
- Using Composer to manage Drupal on a shared remote host.

NOTE: This meetup will also be streamed LIVE for all Florida Drupal Attendees. Stay tuned for details if you can not make it in person!


We are website building enthusiasts who focus on using the Drupal Content Management System (CMS) to build modern websites. We enjoy discussing web design & development topics and tackling challenges in website construction.

We discuss topics such as website building basics, user experience, web design, templating, web development, web accessibility, eCommerce, Drupal, PHP, Symphony, Composer, TWIG, YML, Linux, and much more.
