                          Drupal makes me hAPI: Open
                     source social publishing architecture

 Drupal is open source social publishing software that empowers individuals,
 teams, and communities to easily publish, manage and organize a wide
 variety of content on a website as well as build more complex web
 applications.  Tens of thousands of people and organizations have used
 Drupal to power scores of different types of web sites, including community
 web portals, corporate web sites, social networking sites, personal web
 sites or blogs, and much more.  

 Drupal's roots extend deep into the Linux and Open Source communities. 
 Drupal had its "coming out" at the 2005 FOSDEM conference in Brussels and
 early iterations were mainly developed on Linux.  

 This talk will cover the Drupal framework with an emphasis on architecture
 and programming patterns while touching on a number of other topics such as
 performance tuning and hosting integration as well as considering the
 underlying reasons for Drupal's wide-ranging success, all served up with a
 healthy smathering of awesome sauce.  

 The presentation will also include a short real world case study of a
 Drupal SaaS implementation "the BeerCloud" (an Android and iPhone
 application which uses Drupal as a backend)  More Information: 

   * Drupal

   * Drupal + Services Module + Beer = BeerCloud on Android and iPhone

 Map & Directions:

   We meet in the basement. Enter the library and head to the back. If the
   door is closed when you arrive you can ask the manager of the library for
   the keys to the room if you're comfortable opening up the basement, or
   you can wait for some of the others to arrive.
