Bellingham

Welcome to the Bellingham Drupal Users' Group!

***If you've just joined us from Meetup.com, thank you for making your way over to GDO. If you don't usually spend a lot of time here, you should take some time to check out all that GDO has to offer and see if there are other useful groups related to what you're doing with Drupal (or what you want to do). Going forward, this will be where we announce meeting dates and times, discuss your Drupal questions, and post interesting events and ideas related to Drupal.***

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! To get the most out of our meetups, you should have at least installed Drupal and played around with it some before you attend one. At some point, we may host some opportunities for learning Drupal locally, but this is not a group for learning the basics of Drupal.

Please don't post job offers in this group unless they are local to Bellingham, Skagit, or Whatcom County. Thanks for helping us keep it local.

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

I discovered that if you follow the instructions to build the Twig C extension (OS X context) per:

http://twig.sensiolabs.org/doc/installation.html#installing-the-c-extension

$ cd ext/twig # my full path location was at: ~/.composer/vendor/twig/twig/ext/twig
$ phpize
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

You will get a 64-bit component as evidenced by using the file command on the resultant twig.so file:

2) http://linuxfestnorthwest.org/2016/sessions/drupal-8-build-something-ama...

It'd be great to also get a Drupal booth in the Expo hall. I'm reaching out to the DA to see if we can get some support with signage, etc.

Is there interest in attending and taking a shift at the Drupal Booth? We need to know by Monday, Feb 29th.

SemanticScholar: new search resource offers interesting Drupal papers

An interesting new resource (currently in beta) for discovery of articles/papers:

https://www.semanticscholar.org

Their current corpus consists only of computer science papers they say, but some basic searches suggest that this is still broad in scope and is relevant to folks who are working with Drupal. For example, I was interested to see what papers might be found regarding the realm of the semantic web and linked data. It turns out that a search on 'drupal linked data' yields 498 papers from the default date range of 1985-2015:
