Bellingham

Welcome to the Bellingham Drupal Users' Group!

The BhamDUG is currently planning its meetups to talk about Drupal, to contribute to regional Drupal events like PNW Drupal Camp, and have some Drupal Fun. During BhamDUG meetups, we showcase modules and projects, share tips and tricks, and answer nagging questions about Drupal.

This is a geographic Drupal User Group, meant primarily for planning local Drupal related events and meetups, and for supporting users locally.

Don't know much about Drupal yet? That's okay. New Drupal people are welcome!

Drupal 8 & Twig C extension: tip on building the extension for Acquia Dev Desktop 2 context

A note about the Twig C extension (offers enhanced theme performance) for use with Drupal 8 in the context of Acquia Dev Desktop 2

$ make
