We meet on the last Tuesday of the month at the Rich Media Institute.

LA Drupal meets monthly and offers a nice place for members and new people to learn and talk about Drupal, a world popular content management system (CMS). RSVP is not required and attendance is free.


Building R.E.M.'s concert tour site in Drupal

Learning Drupal? Want to see a completed Drupal site for the world-famous music group R.E.M.? You're in luck!

Our LA Drupal member Blake Lucchesi, from BoldSource, a local Drupal firm, will be showing us what makes this new web site tick. Come see the modules used, listen to the customization needed, and ask tons of questions.

Presentation technical level: Beginner (anyone)

See the R.E.M. tour site at http://tour.remhq.com

Developer Topic: Preventing SQL/XSS Code Injections in your PHP

Dave Keays, from RDK Software, will be showing the PHP crowd how they need to watch their code and make sure we don't let our guard down with accepting user input from things like forms. Drupal runs on PHP, so if you're interested in making modules or developing on top of Drupal then you'll want to learn all things related to PHP security and code injections is at the top of the list.

Presentation technical level: Intermediate-Advanced


In addition to our presentation(s) of the night we have open-mic opportunities for those who have general Drupal questions or need help, time for those who are hiring or looking for consultants, upcoming Drupal training announcements, a message from our Drupalcon L.A. Proposal Group, updates about DrupalCamp LA 2008, and as always, the end of the meeting networking session with the fun and knowledgeable LA Drupal crowd.
