We will meet online for a special Hangout with Toronto Drupal Developer and UX Authority, Michael Keara (@useradvocate) who will discuss his radical vision of intentional site building through outside-in Information Architecture creation.

If you've ever been involved with a Drupal project—as a web site owner or as a site builder—you may have experienced a disconnect between the planning and the implementation trajectories.

In his video "Intentional Site Building and the Evolution of Drupal" <https://youtu.be/9WM7k8AXgYc> Michael argues that Drupal's core site building tools cause site builders and their clients to go off in separate directions. He offers a clear explanation for why this occurs and a radical solution that could make web site building almost as natural as having a conversation.

This ~45-minute presentation was made at DrupalCamp Toronto in 2014.

*YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO VIEW THE VIDEO AT https://youtu.be/9WM7k8AXgYc IN ADVANCE OF THE HANGOUT.*

Newbies, just join in when you can, here at the Hangout, starting at 7 p.m. A headset/mic gives the best results. Learn more at https://support.google.com/hangouts#topic=2944848

As always, WNYDUG members and others are welcome to bring in Drupal questions, finds, and ideas.

Due to the final two in-person meetups of the year falling on Thanksgiving Eve and New Year's Eve, we will stick with just our usual second-Wednesday "virtual" meetups on Google Hangouts.

Have a safe and happy holiday season.

Welcome to the Western New York State Drupal User Group’s monthly Google+ Hangout.

To borrow a line from the Boulder group, "WOO HOO!! It's that time again! Time for another great Drupal meetup!"

We will meet online and cover user-provided topics, plus talk over the idea of a special INTERNATIONAL Hangout to occur at a special time—tune in for details.

No problem. In fact, it would have been a problem if you went since our venue in Batavia recently shut down. Yet its Wi-Fi still worked (it was that fresh!). . . .

Introduction

WNYDUG meets monthly at venues around the region, including Buffalo, Rochester, and Niagara Falls. All of us have a hand in sites built with Drupal and/or use Drupal on a daily basis. Our active members are designers, developers, entrepreneurs, business people, and everything in between.

Meetings can be attended in person or online, where we talk about recent Drupal news, upcoming releases, learn about other members’ projects, and hear presentations on subjects that both matter to us and motivate the Drupal community.
