Saturday, August 25, 2012 - 12:00 to 14:00

This afternoon's tutors are Christefano Reyes (@christefano) and Miguel Hernandez (Techivist), two of the Larks with Exaltation of Larks. This time block is devoted to you, so bring your questions and homework to work on. The tutors' time is on a first-come, first-served basis.

We're also pleased to announce that watching videos on Build a Module.com is FREE at Droplabs and that we are able to incorporate a mentored training approach at these open tutoring sessions. Build a Module.com has over 700 videos on Drupal development and site building and there's something for every skill level. Be sure to bring your headphones.

This is another session of our tutoring series at Droplabs and we welcome your feedback. We'll try to introduce a Users Helping Users concept, so if you're of a certain level, are waiting for an answer, and can help another, please do so!

This event is a fund raiser to benefit Droplabs and has a sliding scale donation of $10-20. No one will be turned away. Donations go directly toward the venue and helping to keep Droplabs free for the community.

What to Bring

Just bring your laptop, your business cards or whatever else you need. You're also welcome to bring some light food, sodas or beers to share with others at the meetup.

Do you have a job announcement? Bring a copy of your job description and several business cards for our "take a card, leave a card" table.

Please note that our guest wireless network is limited to 1Mb per client, so bring your MiFi router or a phone you can tether with if for some reason you need a lot of bandwidth. Access to our high-speed network is included with a Droplabs membership.

About Downtown Los Angeles Drupal

Downtown Los Angeles is one of the most active areas for Drupal in Los Angeles and LA County. We've been meeting regularly on the 3rd Tuesday of every month since early 2010 and now schedule up to 6 regular meetups and workshops a month and occasional trainings and social gatherings. Downtown Drupal members also produce special events, code sprints, and the annual Drupal Design Camp LA conference.

Attending Drupal events in and around Downtown Los Angeles is one of the best ways to meet and talk with other Drupaleros and we encourage you to attend as many meetings and special events as you'd like. Whether it's to find solutions to problems you've been having, sharing something you've learned or just meeting interesting like-minded people, the Downtown Los Angeles Drupal events are an essential resource for Drupal professionals and hobbyists alike.
