For May's meetup, we're going to try something different.

We're going to host a Drupal 8 workshop where you'll learn the benefits of choosing Drupal in 2017 and get a beginner's guide to Drupal theming and module development.

If you're trying to decide if Drupal is the right choice and want to get under the hood, then come and join us.

If you have any Drupal questions, bring your laptop, and we'll be more than happy to help.

By the way, I'm looking for two people to present on Drupal theming and module development. Leave a comment if you'd like to present one.
