What we're about

The Chicago Drupal community has a long and proud history as one of the most active and vibrant in all of North America. The mission of the Drupal Chicago is to create an open community among everyone interested in the Drupal open source content management platform.

The Drupal Chicago Meetup Group (http://www.meetup.com/drupalchicago/) holds meetups and hopefully provide something of interest to everyone. Presentations and speakers are aimed at a general audience, with site show-and-tells, module demonstrations, news and announcements, and question and answer sessions. If you are new to Drupal, this is a great place to start and continue to learn about new Drupal things.

We are always looking for presenters (http://bit.ly/DrupalChiSubmitTalk) and companies to host (http://bit.ly/DrupalChiHostMeetupInterest).

If you live or work in the suburbs, check out the Fox Valley Drupal Meetup group (http://www.meetup.com/Fox-Valley-Drupal/) with topics for all users.

Volunteers in the Chicago Drupal Group also organize MidCamp - Midwest Drupal Camp (http://www.midcamp.org/). Drupal camps are multi-day events that can include training days, session days, code and documentation sprints, and social events. Held annually in March, MidCamp is quickly becoming one of the larger and prestigious Drupal camps due to its high level of speakers, content, accessibility, and attention to detail.

Drupal Chicago is dedicated to providing a harassment-free meetup experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. For more details please see the full Drupal Chicago Code of Conduct (http://www.meetup.com/Chicago-Advanced-Drupal-User-Group/pages/Code_of_Conduct/)

MidCamp 2021 Planning

Online event

Please join us for our every other week MidCamp 2021 planning meeting! Why come? Because we value giving back to the Drupal community and this is one way you can do that. What should I expect? That's mostly up to you -- there are a lot of roles and skillsets needed to put on a conference like MidCamp. Regardless of what you do day-to-day, you can find a fit. What if I don't live in Chicago? That's OK! The planning of things is done remotely. A good portion of the planning team doesn't live in or near Chicago. People join because they care about Drupal and want to help make MidCamp happen. How to join? We'll be using a Waiting Room for the Zoom, so please RSVP here if you plan on joining so we're able to let you in. We also welcome you to join the #midcamp-organizers channel on our Slack team: https://mid.camp/slack.
