Big Day: Work Then Library Conference Then Drupal Meetup

Submitted by Leo Klein on Wed, 10/19/11 (10:28pm)

Today was a big day. I started it off at MPOW with a meeting at 9am sharp. At noon I left for Rosemont and the Illinois Library Association Conference. They were featuring not only a free pass to get in to see the exhibits but a free lunch as well: carved roast beef and turkey along with two kinds of pasta and either a tomato or cream sauce. Heaven! Following a quick stop home, I next headed downtown for the monthly meeting of the Chicago Drupal Meetup Group. The meeting this month was starting early because they had three people giving presentations instead of the usual 2. One was on the switch to Drupal over at the Field Museum.

I was at the ILA Conference for a short sweep through the exhibits on Wednesday. The two chief attractions (at least for me) were 1) Free pass for the exhibits and 2) Free lunchtime buffet (pictured above).
