Last night (1/14/2009), Sacramento user group had a great meeting, held for the first time at its new and permanent-for-the-foreseeable-future location, Hoppy Brewing Company, which provides us with our own room, free wifi, as well as some great beer and food.
Ten of us showed up - an amazing number considering that we've had three different meeting places in the last 5 months. If we can pull ten despite previous scheduling and location difficulties, it will be very interesting to see how things evolve for the group now that it will have continuity of location and frequency!
In addition to introductions, each person gave some information about what they were hoping to do with Drupal for the coming year, as well as something they would like to see happen for the Sac DUG itself in 2009. Lots of great ideas were put forth, which included internal group stuff (code sprints, ideas/formats for monthly presentations), as well as some external stuff where we, as a group, might get involved directly with contributing-to/evangelizing Drupal and/or helping a charitable organization get going with a Drupal site.
Thanks to everyone who came, and I look forward to seeing you all Wednesday, February 18th, 2009 at Hoppy Brewing Company!
