Welcome to LA Drupal

LA Drupal is the hub for Drupal users in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas to network and collaborate; including Orange County, San Gabriel Valley, San Fernando Valley, Inland Empire, and the whole of Southern California. One of the largest local Drupal user groups in the world, we promote and encourage open exchanges of ideas within the Drupal Community and also with the other open source communities (including PHP and MySQL).

The main monthly meetup is held on the second Tuesday of each month, with presentations and time for open discussion and networking. Our meetups are free and open to everyone at all skill levels. See our Calendar of Events for all the local activity, including job networking, trainings and social occasions.

Join us each summer for our annual DrupalCamp LA conference, for the LA, Orange County and greater Southern California area.

24-hour Online Drupal Video Training Library

Our free online video training library has over 200 videos and hundreds of Drupal/PHP training hours! View recorded sessions from camps, meetups, trainings, and the official DrupalCon.
