Welcome to the Bellingham 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.
PLEASE do not post job offers in this group unless they are local to Bellingham, Skagit, or Whatcom County. Any job posted to this group that is not in this area will be promptly removed.
The first ever Devsigner Conference is happening in Portland May 23-25, and we'd love to see you there!
Devsigner is a brand new event that will bring together frontend developers and technology-oriented designers and invite them to share their expertise, helping them take frontend development to the next level. We will be using Drupal as an assumed base platform, but since frontend development isn't tied to a particular backend, our audience includes any frontend dev and web-focused designer.

Mentoring: 10AM to 1PM Saturday, 01/25
Sprint: 10AM to 4PM Saturday, 01/25 and 10AM to 2PM Sunday, 01/26
Q: Do you have to be a "programmer" to contribute?
If you've built a site with Drupal, you can find a way to contribute. Documentation of issues, testing patches, writing issue descriptions, and more are all valid ways to contribute to the success of Drupal 8.
If you want to get set up ahead of time, check the thread on the Meetup page with details from the Community Tools workshop from DrupalCon 2013:Read more
Sprint next weekend. https://groups.drupal.org/node/332998
Would anyone want to get together to sprint on core next weekend? If so I can work on securing some space. I would be able to meet Saturday. Sunday I am headed to the community seed swap so would need to wrap up by noon.

- Enabling Google Auth for a possible shared Drupal calendar app for the group Drupalize.me sharing calendar (so anyone can setup a login without having to establish a new username/password)
- Learning how to use the Calendar module (for that same project)
- Working with text areas with on-screen keyboards for text input with different character sets (relevant to David Sienko's Native language project, this time on a mobile/Android platform)
I thought this worth sharing here, given the number of BDUG members who have expressed an interest in tools like drush and git, but need to increase their comfort level with working on the command line to manage a Drupal site.
Drupalize.me has a whole series of Command Line Basics videos that are FREE. Check it out:
At our in-person meetup last week the subject came up of embedding external information from another node in a taxonomy view. I'd forgotten all about the EVA module, but I think it might work for this.
From the module description, I wonder if this would help solve the problem of pulling a different node's output into a taxonomy view without using Node Relation?Read more
We are trying out a format for weekly online meetups. Visit the Meetup link for more info and to RSVP! Our regular monthly in-person meetups will continue to be the 2nd Monday of each month.
Hello my Drupalers,
I have a client at WompMobile who is in need of a freelance or contractor to help with a few drupal tasks. It's a spinal correction system out of Chehalis, WA.
Contact: Miriam Battson, 253-853-5590
Miriam is a sweetheart, so I promised I would reach out to you guys and see if anyone had some open time. She is interested in adding a translation feature. They have some business in China and are hoping to do more international sales so a translation button would be great.Read more

We have a meeting coming up two Mondays for now. If you have a burning desire to discuss something please post so we can begin to formulate an agenda.
Perhaps follow a format like the following:
Title: This should describe what you want to discuss
Estimated Time: Just give a best guess how long you think the discussion will take.
Description: Describe in detail if you wish the topic.
If you have a question, but maybe not a full-fledged discussion, post that too so people can start formulating answers.Read more
I made some small revisions to the original PDF I provided for the Code Per Node module overview. Please find it attached, it is paginated and PDF bookmarked/Table of Contented for ease of navigation. Questions welcome.
I'm attaching my notes from the meeting last night as a PDF. If anyone wants to add anything, feel free!
Thanks for attending, everyone, especially on such a nice evening. See you in August! Don't forget to vote in the meeting-night poll!
Let's keep the momentum going! We will meet on
Monday July 8th Monday July 15th, location on the Meetup page. Please RSVP via the Meetup page if you're planning to come, so that we have a headcount, and feel free to bring any coffee or snacks that you want to share. We won't do a full run-through of the next Drupal Ladder step, but we will discuss it, and I'll be going over the Contribution Sprint setup steps that we walked through at DrupalCon. I invite anyone who wants to get up and talk about what they're doing with Drupal to make a presentation, too.
Hi everyone, here are my notes from the Con as well as the notes I took during the meeting. They are broken out into Session Notes, Questions and Answers, and Possible Next Meeting topics.
Please contribute your notes if you have them.
Thank you everyone for coming to the meeting. It was great. Hope to see you all next month!
