Drupal4Gov will be holding a learn/train/code event the afternoon of October 28th

Password: Array

The agenda is open to any open source project, not just Drupal. We typically build the agenda in the weeks before the event. Please feel free to suggest a topic directly to me at The Drupal4Gov government employees will debate the topics and select the ones they are most interested (including the project).

Hope to see many of you in October!

you know , there is an Open Source in Government group already.


It's nice to have user areas for both Joomla and Drupal on Govloop.

@Michael: Now that the Drupal CMS Club is opening its doors, I'll happily dive in there. =)

Thanks for the heads up!  I had spoken with the Web Manager University team a few months ago, and this looks like a great opportunity.  I'd be happy to don my President of OSM hat to put together a presentation for this!

I'd definitely be happy to share ideas, etc. I just learned that the US Army is using Joomla quite a bit, and I've got a good deal of Joomla experience myself, so I'd be happy to help folks out.

I am working on my first Joomla site for our workforce development program. It's not live yet, and it's a first attempt so I don't think it would be a great example. I look forward to learning more about website design from you and others who've been doing it for awhile.

Are you currently using Joomla for your agency's website? If so, I would love to see examples. I've been developing sites for several years now outside of my primary job, but was able to build a site a couple of years ago for our local community. It's managed by our city but it is not our primary site. It was designed to help promote ongoing learning in our community. You can visit it here
