Meeting Overview

We have two topics for this month's meeting. We'll start out at the Drupal Beginners Corner, with an entry level discussion about getting started with Drupal. Whether you are a developer, designer or a content editor, everyone has to start somewhere. Then we'll transition into a show-and-tell on Drupal 8. It's meant to be a fun fact filled morning, so be sure to take lots of notes. As always, bring your questions, and we'll bring our answers.

Featured Presentations:

Drupal Beginners Corner: Drupal What?
Various Presenters
A shallow dive into why someone would choose to use Drupal. An informal discussion about Drupal for developers, designers, and even content editors.

Drupal 8: Show and Tell
Eric Steinborn, Web Developer, NYS Office of the Attorney General
Eric has been working with Drupal 8 for a few weeks, and boy are his arms tired. Tired of typing questions into Google that is! Drupal 8 has changed much of our development practices. We need to adapt, and quickly. Eric will walk you through some of the major changes he's found from his Drupal 7 to 8 transition. His presentation will be filled with tips and pointers of things to do or to look out for. So be sure you bring something to take notes!
