What's Seattle Drupal Dojo?
Call it a hack night or whatever, Seattle Drupal Dojo is a weekly opportunity to get together with other folks in the local Drupal community. Bring your problems, bring your solutions, bring your laptop.
The word Dojo (道場) captures what we're trying to create -- a place to practice and master one's art. Think of it as a place to become a Drupal blackbelt, a Drupal Ninja.
What to do in a local Dojo?
- Work together on personal projects or troubleshoot Drupal issues
Weekly discussions about Drupal learning and training.
When: Friday @ 12PM ET/9PM PT (unless otherwise noted)

Drupal Theme Development
601 Montgomery St
San Francisco, CA 94111
This class starts by discussing the anatomy of a Drupal theme, and explaining the PHPtemplate system Drupal uses to render HTML. We'll guide you through creating a custom theme from scratch by overriding the template files provided by Drupal core, adding new style sheets, and defining your own theme and preprocess functions with a little PHP code.
Drupal's popularity is growing. More and more people are being handed Drupal sites without any understanding of how the site was created or how to maintain it. Do you know someone like that? Are you in that boat?
If you learn how Drupal works, how to perform basic "build" tasks, managing an existing site becomes a lot less challenging. Please consider signing up for:
