Welcome to 2015!
It's going to be a great year here at WNYDUG, we can tell that already. We have some awesome events planned, like Chris Luckhardt coming in later this month to talk with us about Drupal 8 (details below), and we're working hard on setting up a large regional conference later this year (more about that soon).
We're also consolidating our contact information so that we can communicate more effectively with you. We've set up a CRM using RedHen at wnydug.net, where we'll be tracking individuals and businesses in the WNY area that are Drupal enthusiasts. Stop by to check it out, and make sure that we have your latest and greatest contact information.
We're starting the year off with a great discussion on Drupal 8 by a Drupal Master, so get this loaded into your calendars right now!
Here are the details:
