Groups & Meetings

There are regular meetings for the Steering, Technical and Product groups, plus various meetings for those working on particular features. To check what's going on and when see the shared Google calendar

The Technical Drop-in is a fortnightly informal drop-in meetup for technical folk to hear what's happening, get help and guidance and share ideas.  If you'd like to join a session email us on hello@localgovdrupal.org or message the #technical-group Slack channel 

There is also now an informal meetup for content designers, if you'd like to join that then email us on hello@localgovdrupal.org or message the #content Slack channel. 

When I come up with any issues, I just go to the team. There's lots of collaboration, there's lots of sharing. The way this LocalGov Drupal product group shares information is brilliant.
