    Drupal After Dark: After in-person meetups, members often head to a local restaurant or bar for a Drupal After Dark social gathering. Online meetups segue into a social hour as well, we just change our virtual background from nerdy to something adventurous.

    We do have a request to demo updating/upgrading a site that is way behind on updates. We may not have a prepared demo for that, but Rick is prepared to do a Lightning Talk on the topic, and there are other folks updating sites who can share their workflows as well. So join us! Bring questions, or be there to offer answers, or just join us to be social.

    Welcome to LA Drupal's Meetup. LA Drupal member Todd Z. will give a brief presentation on setting up xdebug and various add-ons for IDEs, John M. will present on challenges he ran into setting up a View using taxonomies, and I quote "My thoroughly embarrassing and ridiculously stupid face-palming Homer quoting (Doh!) mistake."

    As always, there will be lively conversation before and after the presentations, and other spontaneous Lightning Talks may occur, such as setting up an XLM feed using the Feeds module, or other challenges one might face using Views.
