List of Events
On the last Wednesday of each month at 7pm, Droplabs has an open stakeholders meeting with the Droplabs founders, keyholders and members of our community in and around Los Angeles, California. These meetings are a great opportunity to kick back after a day of coworking, get to know your neighbors and coworking and request, offer and brainstorm new services and upcoming events to serve our members and larger community.
We're meeting this time at Droplabs, a Drupal-friendly classroom, coworking space and makerspace near Downtown Los Angeles. Those interested in attending this meetup remotely are welcome to join us via WebEx.
At this Drupal Commerce meetup, we'll be continuing with the Commerce Module Tuesday videos that we introduced last time, and we'll demo and discuss the various modules covered by the series. We'll also cover recent news and events of interest that are happening in the Drupal Commerce world.

What is Drupal? For large and complex websites, nothing beats it! Where do you start? What is the best way to organize your project to get the best chance of success?
This workshop will help you turn your ideas into a concrete to-do list — whether you're building the site yourself, handing it off to a developer to build, or something in-between.
At this workshop, you'll have access to Drupal experts at Exaltation of Larks — a Drupal strategy, consulting, development and training company in Los Angeles — learn about Drupal and have a fun day!
This is the perfect workshop for you if:
- You're new to using Drupal and need a jumpstart in planning a large project;
- You're investigating Drupal's viability for your next project;
- You're wondering whether to invest time in learning Drupal;
- You don't have the time to learn Drupal but will be involved in a Drupal project.

Force.com Hackathon at Droplabs
Hey, Force.com Hackers... This is it! Time to dig into your backlogged issues, developer sandboxes, and/or sketches on legal pads for all those hair-brained schemes (or schemas) of yours and git 'er done!
We will be hosting a hackathon this Saturday, June 8th from 11am to 3pm at Droploabs near Downtown LA. We will have on-hand a developer evangelist with whom I'll put together a Level I and Level II challenge/mini-hack for those of you who haven't conjured up your own ingenious ideas yet.
This is a weekend, which should allow more driving time to the event. Since we only have a 4-hour window, please try to show up on-time and with a not-too-ravenous appetite so that we can consume mass quantities of hacking!
Cheers, Nathan Pepper
