I'm a big user of iCal feed parsing in D6 using FeedAPI to consume Google Calendars for display in Calendar views. The idea being that the canonical source of calendaring data is sourced outside of Drupal in whatever Calendaring app the user naturally uses. In D7, there is no real progress on an iCal Feed Parser for Feeds, the successor to FeedAPI. I'm a little surprised that such a functional need hasn't been addressed yet over six months after D7's release. I wonder: is there an obvious workaround or alternate venue for this functionality in D7 that I'm not aware of?Read more
Hello NYC! Greetings.
On March 25th I will be in your lovely city for about a week and I would love to meet some of you, or to visit with any local Drupal agencies in the city. Currently I live in Portland OR and my clients are National and Global.Read more
Would anyone be interested in demoing some code that they've written using the Ctools API tools? I'd especially like to see some examples of the Exportables, Ajax and Form Wizard APIs. A lot of sessions that I've been to touch on the tools but there haven't been any code samples or explanation of the methodology behind the code.
I spoke with a lot of people lately who were interested in talking about this topic, so I would like to get a BoF going where we can all share our experiences with estimating project durations. It would be nice to hear from people who work with a company and those who are freelancers as well, to get a feel for what's common and what's not when getting a proposal together.
COD stands for Conference Organizing Distribution and the goal of the project is to facilitate coordination of and participation in conferences via the conference website. COD can improve the efficiency of setting up a powerful website for both Drupal and non-Drupal conferences and events and provide value to non-developers and developers alike.
Let's get together to discuss COD and potentially work on some patches!
See the COD Roadmap.
I want to talk about what we are doing with design and drupal, where we are going and how we can do it in small groups of focused themers :) here in the Big Apple

Ever since we started using Apache Solr for our projects, we've been looking into ways of making search more intuitive and usable. The Apache Solr module provides Drupal with faceted search functionality. With large sets of data and lots of search filters, faceted search is a user interface challenge. It also opens up a world of possibilities for UI innovation.Read more
A general overview of the apachesolr module from a development standpoint. We will expand on the standard functionality to see how to create new facet types and add extra into into the search index. We'll then go a bit farther to see how you can create custom search pages and integrate search more tightly with your site. The idea and methods for creating hierarchies of facets will also be covered along with a demo illustrating some of the behavior described.
