next meetup: Tuesday, 1/17 @ Lullabot's place - co-sponsored with Providence Web App Security Group
Our next Providence Drupal Meetup will be on Tuesday, January 17th at 7:00pm at Lullabot's Activity Center (150 Chestnut St, 3rd Floor, Providence, RI). We’ll be kicking back with food and drink in their swanky cool space. Parking is free on and off street (starts at 5 pm). Drinks and mingling starts at 6, so come early!
We're playing co-host with our friends the Providence Web Application Security Group and Greg Knaddison, Acquia's Director of Security Services (aka Head of Drupal Security) will be giving a talk 'live via sattelite' (ok, Skype). The title of the presentation is "Drupal as a Security Vendor". He will show the methodology that is used in Drupal for handling security issues and comparing/contrasting with how other similar projects do it. Greg has said that this presentation will be more "OWASPy" than "Drupaly".
Greg won't actually be in attendance, we'll be trying out a "virtual" presentation where Greg will present live from Denver over a Skype connection.
Don't let the techy topic fool you - this is a great conversation about just how much is done in Drupal to counteract the 'Open Source means insecure' FUDdle that is so often thrown about when suggesting Drupal as a platform on client projects.
A huge thank you also to our hosts at Lullabot and especially to our speaker, Greg Knaddison.
Please forward this on to anyone who might be interested and please bring a friend or colleague along!
