first meetup: May 17th, 6pm @ McFadden's
The first Providence Drupal Meetup will be held next Monday, the 17th at 6:00pm a McFadden’s Restaurant & Saloon. We’ll be in their private room; food and drinks will be served. Parking is free on and off street (starts at 5 pm).
Doors open at 6 pm; we ask that you try to arrive by 6:30 pm for networking. The program starts promptly at 7 pm. The program includes introductions, a presentation, and a chance to pick the brains of your fellow attendees.
We'll update this post with more details, but the plan is to showcase a few short presentations (including on by me about what's coming in Drupal 7) and panel-style Q&A afterwards.
Sponsorship for this meet up is still open. For a paltry $100, sponsors buy finger foods for all and drink tickets for the first 10 attendees. There are several great benefits, including a plug and logo on the sponsored events post (always the top post until the day after) and a few minutes to introduce yourself (or have yourself introduced) at the event. Learn more about sponsoring a meet up.
As always, please RSVP by leaving a comment! We need to show up those WordPress Providence folks, so get the word out and come on by.
