Chicagoland Library Drupal Group : Dec. 7 (9:30a-12noon) at OPPL

Submitted by Leo Klein on Thu, 11/12/09 (12:31pm)

We'll be having a get-together of the Chicagoland Library Drupal Group on Mon., Dec. 7 (9:30-12noon) at the Oak Park Public Library.

I'll be doing a presentation that's been near and dear to my heart recently: incorporating WYSIWYG into Drupal. It's called, appropriately enough, "The Joys & Sorrows of WYSIWYG".

Russ Bomhof and Geoffrey Hing from CRL (who recently launched their site in Drupal) will also be presenting.
