Welcome to the Portland, Oregon Drupal Users Group. We have (at least) four official meetups every month.
The 'Way out West' meetup takes place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at Server Logic, 9020 SW Washington Square Rd, Suite 120 from 6 - 7pm. This meeting focuses on choosing and using Drupal modules.
Brewpal takes place on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 5pm at the Lucky Lab on 1945 NW Quimby. We meet, work on our projects, and ask questions of our neighbors with no formal agenda.
No need to RSVP, the meetings are open to all.
It's April and that means the monthly Portland Drupal meetup is right around the corner! Last month we had a ton of great lightning talks, but I know the 5 minute limit had some people begging to go deeper into topics. This month we're back to the regular 15-20 minute presentations.
Leave a comment below if you'd like to present.
As usual, the meetup will take place at 6pm at the OpenSourcery office (1636 NW Lovejoy St).Read more
Hey all! In the likely event of my attendance at DrupaCon this year, I would really like to avoid hotel expenditures. It seems frivolous to me, especially when there's such a large community of people I could reach out to and possibly find a place to lay my head between days.
Maybe others would be interested in trying this, too, so here's a thread travelers and potential hosts can post requests and availability to.
About me: from Berkeley, I recently moved to DC to work for Acquia on a high-profile project. I'm clean, courteous, and happy to buy beer and/or cook (if time permits).Read more

There were a good amount of people who were interested in being able to access my presentation after the lightning talks, so I figured I'd post it up to share. I apologize in advance for any errors in there, I completed this in between other major tasks at my day job and then had to go back to being a super hero afterwards.Read more

NOTE: Different location this month. We're trying out Squishymedia's headquarters as a meetup spot.
Squishymedia is at 116 NE 6th Ave (corner of 6th and Couch) a block north of Ron Toms, 3rd floor. Street parking is available and normally easy; also plenty of bus lines run Burnside, Couch, Grand, MLK.
There is a call box down at the front door and once the first person arrives we'll probably send someone down to the door and just keep a Squishyer posted there.
The topic this month will be web design trends, historically as well as currently.
I'd like to store data securely in the database of my site which is a D6 based OpenAtrium install. To this end, I prettymuch just grabbed the text module from CCK (since I'm not releasing this as my own module) and then enabled the Encrypt module and added "encrypt()" and "decrypt()" around what I thought were the appropriate variables.
I have no issue with decrypting the data, but encrypting it seems to be a bit of a battle.Read more
OMBU has two new job openings and I'd like to invite everyone to check us out. If the following resonates with you, take a look at our open positions and get in touch:

- We collaborate in the design and improvement of internal processes and tools that make our lives and work better.
We've had some really great themed meetups recently, but sometimes that can get a bit monolithic and requires quite a bit of preparation from presenters. This month we're bringing back the Lightning Presentation format!
Lightning presentations are quick 5 minute demos or how-tos. Show everyone what you've been working on. Share a tip or trick you just learned. Get feedback on a challenge you're working to resolve.
If you'd like to give a Lightning presentation, leave a comment below.Read more
