Do you like Drupal? Do you travel? We're branching off from this thread http://groups.drupal.org/node/252098#new to discuss drupal and local hospitality.
Our ambition and motivation with this group is to build a website that caters to Drupal travelers in an easy, hassle-free and frictionless way.
The web site should help travellers in the drupal community:
1. make a trip the Drupal way (whatever that means to you)
2. get most out of your trip as a drupal hobbyist or professional
3. nurture the local communities by sharing knowledge with individuals or groups when travelling
Saforian, a web design agency located in Northern Virginia, developed an event app for the upcoming DrupalCon Portland. Our fun, interactive app simplifies the event experience by showing you what’s going on at the conference and the hot spots to check out in Portland, along with making it easy to connect with other Drupal lovers. Not only is the app loaded with useful easy-to-access information but the way it's presented and its user interface are incredibly fun and interactive.Read more
I've been thinking about how to organize/connect/network with other travelling drupalists and also for myself.
I would imagine individuals introduction along with interests and what they want and what they can offer in terms of traveling, networking, hosting etc.
Here is my description and I feel we could make a website to organize information better to easily search and find each other and self match making. :)
Hi! I just got word that we're finally approved, so we will be visible on gdo and people can sign up without having to go through our link/url.
I'd like to invite a few more people on board to run the group, so if you want to step up as an organizer, it's really sweet if you can say a few words here below. Cheers!
I didn't make it to last Saturday's Drupal Meetup in Seoul(I live in Beijing) but saw photos taken and shared by Ken on Seoul Korea Drual User facebook group http://www.facebook.com/groups/kdrupal
Following is how this meetup happened. :) Connecting traveling/visiting Drupalist to local drupal community
I heard it was great! :) So much tips and Korean drupalists were very grateful and impressed again about great DRUPAL COMMUNITY SPIRIT! :).
BIG Thanks to Tino!Read more
Congrats on the new group! Would you consider renaming the group back to "Drupal Hospitality" so that it's easier to find?
In California, we have a fledgeling Drupal Travelers Program that's similar to the mission of this group. Here's our wiki page:
I'm happy to combine forces and share our experiences with the larger community. If anyone has any questions, please post them here. Thanks!
I have been thinking about setting up a dedicated web site for quite some time. Something like couchsurfing, but more Drupal focused.
Some people might ask.. Why don't you just create a group on g.d.o, or how about a forum? Or why don't I just simply refer to the registered user profiles on d.o to find people to connect with?
Although travellers might be able to connect somehow through a threaded group or a forum, there are at least 3 drawbacks by relying on a forum as a vehicle for connecting people:Read more
My observation is based on Indian perspective but it may apply to other countries as well.
Numerous drupalists from western countries have development partners in India but rarely do they meetup with their outsourcing partners in India. Even when they travel to India for fun, they may not even meetup/connect with their development partner. The outcome is the outsourcing relationship is short-lived.Read more
I had several contacts from fellow drupalers and possibilities.
But it didn't happen(yet) as it seemed too much to do it that time.
Drupaler who is specialized in Windows Server IIS and Drupal system performance configuration liked the idea of coming/sharing/traveling to Beijing, China.
But taking flight from europe for meeting one person(me) was too much resource consumption.
So we thought we could organize a seminar for targeting drupalers using Windows Server system.
If you just joined - welcome to this brand new group, take some time to read this thread at the link below (by all means, also join the important marketing group as well if you have something to share)
Let's follow up. :) Jump onboard and leave any comments here!
I'll be back in the thread with some more ideas and replies on Sunday (way too busy right now)..
The mission of the Drupal Travelers Program is to connect businesses and traveling community members with local communities and events in the areas that they are visiting.
You are welcome to edit and add to this wiki, but keep the list organized and do not remove entries unless you are that meetup or group organizer.
Adding links, dates and geographical locations is encouraged.
