Get off your Agile treadmill and build a community instead
Speakers Tim Gray and Bruce Darby from the University of Edinburgh will take a new look at continuous improvements and how you could be applying this to your community building as well as your products. So not just building services and functionality but organising events and engaging with the people that use your software and websites as well. When we implemented our new CMS using Drupal we could see the power of community development. Let’s have a discussion about what you are doing (if anything!) about community engagement - either with your users/customers/clients or any other community (e.g. Drupal) and what the advantages and disadvantages are.
The talk will last from 6 pm to 7 pm and afterwards, we will adjourn to the nearby bar, Hemma, for informal discussion and chat.
Learn about how you can use Drupal for your own organisation, discover the basics of using Drupal, improve your mastery or learn more about the latest hot subjects. And meet lots of great folk.
Over the 2 days there will be 3 core events: Drupal for Business – "How your organisation can benefit from Drupal"; Drupal Training – a full-day training session; and DrupalCamp – presentations, discussion and chat for everyone.
The first meeting of the Dundee Drupal User Group kicks off on Tuesday 21st May, in room 1G10 in the Dalhousie Building (http://www.dundee.ac.uk/general/campusguide/virtualtour/dalhousie/).
The room's available from 6.30pm, with the main event kicking off at 7pm:
- Summary of what's happening on Planet Drupal right now
- Main Presentation (tbc)
- Lightning Talks - 5 minute slots for anyone to demo anything cool and interesting they've stumbled across recently.
We have the room in the Dalhousie Building until 9pm, and will probably adjourn to Duke's Corner (http://www.dukescorner.co.uk/) for beer and chat afterwards. More details to follow over next few weeks.
All are welcome - especially those who are new to Drupal or want to find out anything about getting started. As with Drupal, the event is free... just please signup at URL below so we know who's coming.
This will be the 4th annual camp held in Scotland and this year moves to Scotland's largest city, Glasgow. The day will feature community lead sessions across 3 tracks with guest speakers to bring it all together. Further details will be announced soon.
