A barn raising is an event during which a community comes together to assemble a barn for one or more of its households, particularly in 18th- and 19th-century rural North America. (Wikipedia)

The same can be done for websites.

SCALE (Southern California Linux Expo) is going to be a little earlier next year and this has moved forward the CFP (Call for Papers). We will be building the SCALE site on Drupal 7 this year. In the past, the CFP was on a separate non-Drupal framework and importing the data was the source of some headaches. I hope by bringing the CFP into Drupal from the start, we can improve on that situation.

A study group for Drupal 7 Development is being formed. As a study guide, the group will be using the book Pro Drupal 7 Development by Dave Reid, Todd Tomlinson and John VanDyk, published by Apress.

This study group was announced at the last Downtown Meetup at and it focuses primarily on programming and module development in Drupal 7. Books will be distributed at the first meeting of the group on June 20th. There is no fee for joining this group or for the book.
