Drupal4Lib BoF at ALA Anaheim

Saturday, June 23, 2012
10:30 am to 12:00 pm, US/Pacific

I just had a look at the schedule for ALA Anaheim and noticed there wasn't a get-together for us library drupalers -- to talk shop, to talk projects, joys, frustrations, discoveries, etc.

So I know it's kind of late but how about a Drupal4Lib BoF on Sat. 23 (10:30a-12noon)?

Location - Anaheim Marriott. Rm 315.

Please leave comments & suggestions below!

That time works for me though Sunday afternoon is better. As an exhibits-only attendee, I'd prefer a location where I would have access. :)

I'm open to meeting anywhere that works for everyone.  However, please don't change it to Sunday!  That's the only day I'm booked solid!

First, hi Ian!

Second, Sunday's kind of yuckie because there's the Top Tech Trends meeting (always a favorite) then the General ALA awards, presentations etc.

That's why Saturday looked best.

Meeting up with other drupalers sounds great. I can't make it on Sunday though-- attending a morning session and then leaving. Ian, will it work on Sat. if we can find a place where you can meet us?

Saturday's not a problem, looking forward to it!

but Saturday & Sunday are both out for me, I'm basically double-booked all day long. Is anyone still around on Monday? Or does everyone leave early?

Okay, Cary suggested that we meet at the Marriot and then go out to lunch afterwards.  Note, Cary's also got a session in the afternoon.  So the day is shaping up to:

  1. Drupal4Lib BoF: Sat. (6/23) 10:30a-12noon - Marriott
  2. Drupalers' Lunch: Sat. (6/23) 12noon-1:30p - Marriott
  3. ALA Drupal Session w/Cary Gordon: "How to Quickly Build a Web App Using Drupal": 1:30p-5:30p - Marriott
