Join Drupal North East - a User Group for developers, themers, designers, administrators and users of Drupal to meet up with like-minded people and share all things Drupal.
After meeting up regularly through networking events, Drupalcons in Paris, Copenhagen and Chicago and discussion on IRC, a number of local Drupal enthusiasts have come together to help get the meet-ups started in the North East.
We've developed a website for the group where you can register to receive e-mail updates, however we will also try post information about meet-ups and any other events on this Drupal.org.uk group. To visit the website go to: http://www.drupalnortheast.org.uk
For our seventh Drupal Yorkshire, Matt Smith (co-maintainer for Omega) is heading over the hills from Manchester to Leeds, to present a talk on guess what? Omega, one of the most popular contributed Drupal themes. It has had a facelift, and it’s almost unrecognisable!
Drupal Yorkshire Meetup #6 highlight will be Nathan Lisgo presenting a live talk on Behat at Curve Agency's offices in Leeds city centre. They will be supplying free beer and pizza for all Eventbrite registrants! We usually start loosely around 6:30-7pm we'll probably finish up around 8:30pm and head to the nearest pub for various additional refreshments and Drupal talk.
We are excited to have Orange hosting us in Leeds on Tuesday 16th April, for our fourth Drupal Yorkshire meetup. Tickets are scarce, so get signed up sooner rather than later, if you are interested in attending.
Are you a Drupal developer, themer, designer, documentation writer, or project planner?
If so you are invited to participate in the Drupal Drop In Sprint - a new series of monthly events enabling the community to gather together and work face to face on Drupal core, contrib modules, and handbook documentation.
After over 20 people attending the January event, we're hoping that it will be a case of starting as we mean to go on. February's event will see a talk on Panels and discussion around the idea of a Drupal Hack event for charities in the region and more to be confirmed. If you would like to attend or just find out more make sure you register at our website!
