Drupal Theming Course
By starting with the bare bones of Drupal theming to completing a custom theme, you will understand the concepts of overriding, intercepting and altering markup in Drupal. You will do a step-by-step walk through creating a new theme based on a well tested theme development framework using development best practices. You will go in more depth to coding a custom theme, using pre-process functions and theme functions to get fine-grained control. Then learn how to ensure your themes are secure, and stable. Learn how to control the output of CCK and Views.Read more

Anybody interested in a meet-up for January? What sort of stuff would you like to talk about?
Some stuff on my mind:
- Getting started with Drupal 7 (maybe how to port modules from D6 to D7)
- Views templating (last month's attendees wouldn't have benefitted much from Trevor's presentation, but for those who aren't familiar with this technique, he's got a pretty cool example built for it)
- Mapping (in particular, maybe comparing GMaps to OpenLayers)
- Still willing to talk about Drush for those who want to see some stuff. We talked about
drush makespecifically last time.
Lethbridge meet-up #2 will go December 9th at the U of L. We have the same room booked again this week: AH118.
Here are some things that people expressed interest in learning about. Marc, Trevor, and I will both be prepared to talk on subjects that were of interest to attendees at the previous meet-up.Read more
Now that the buzz of Drupal Camp has calmed down a bit, I think we're ready to get rolling with some local meet-ups.
We will host the first one at the U of L in Anderson Hall 118 on Tuesday, November 16 at 7:00pm.
On the agenda:
- Show and tell: Show us what you've been building in Drupal. This will give us a chance to get to know one another and get an idea where everyone's experience level is at.
All Drupalers welcome. Sign-ups appreciated so we can have an idea of numbers.
northStudio, VSBT and Acquia are happy to announce 'Drupal in a Day Course' on September 10th 2010, a day before the Alberta Drupal Camp!
Drupal in a Day Course
Are you curious about Drupal? Wondering how it can be used, and what you or your team could do with it? Drupal in a Day is an overview of the fundamental concepts of Drupal. It would be good as a foundation for potential site builders and an overview for decision makers who want to look under the hood.

Postponed: New date/time to come
Lethbridge and Southern Alberta Drupal users are invited to attend the first Drupal User Group meet-up.
Come prepared to talk a little bit about your experience or interests in Drupal. We'll use this first get together as a chance to get to know each other. It will be kept pretty casual and hopefully we will get some direction for what people would like to learn about and what others are able to share.
Location to be determined.
