Final Board meeting - 12 years later

Read time: 6 mins

In 2005 I moved from Portland, Oregon to New York City and stepped into the role of Director of Technology at the Manhattan Neighborhood Network (a local community access television). With an existing interest in Open Source I started a Drupal meetup in our office and four people attended. I’m sure they didn’t know it, but these four individuals changed the course of my life by introducing me to and helping to grow the Drupal Community. The meetups in NYC grew exponentially and we started regularly running DrupalCamp NYC that grew to over 300 recurring attendees.
