One of our several continuing courses is Web Development night, hosted by r00ster. The event is intended to show the ropes to those who are new to web development, and to introduce new technology to the old dogs. While each event will have a focus (Drupal, PHP, foundational concepts like GIT[ ], etc.), if you’re working on a site, bring it in for suggestions and help.
While Web Development nights are usually every Thursday, keep an eye on our Event Calendar for updates and check our Mailing List to find out what the topic of the evening will be (and to suggest topics of interest). While we have some older laptops running Ubuntu, it would be advisable to bring a computer of your own with the development tools you’re already familiar with, along with any sites you’d like to create. For more details, contact r00ster!
As always, we recommend you bring a laptop, but have spares if necessary
