About Renee:
- Renee is a CMS Developer and Webmaster at UBC's Department of Computer Science, and co-owner of Panic Stations Media, a tiny multimedia consulting and development shop. She has spent over six
years designing and deploying Drupal sites for mid-size departments and businesses, and has spent ten years working as a web developer in the education and non-profit sector. Last May she spent a month in
Botswana, Africa, deploying a Drupal site on behalf of a support organization for kids with HIV/AIDS. As part of that project, she implemented OpenLayers so that geographical info could be easily added
by novice users.

Drupal Showcase/Lightning Talk: We want you to showcase your latest project or share a great development tool with our group. Come prepared to give a short 5 minute talk on any Drupal related topic. If you want to use a laptop to demo a website or admin panel, please be sure you have the necessary cable to connect to the overhead projector. Please contact to schedule your showcase.

Drupal Q&A: Bring your questions on anything related to Drupal from how to do something technical in PHP to what modules are needed to implement a feature you need.

Cost: While there is no cost for this event, it would be great if you can come prepared to order something (some of us order dinner, some just drinks) along with a 15% gratuity as we really want to keep up a good relationship with ABC as they've been great in allowing us to book their conference room.
