Here’s my report from the “late” Drupal 7 release party in L.A. with Angie Byron (webchick) from Lullabot. Angie is also the branch maintainer for Drupal 7.
The party was definitely a good networking event, and I got to talk more with more of the LA Drupal members. I also had the chance to talk to Angie and ask her about how to get involved in contributing to core. Her advice was useful.
