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!

Attendees for this meeting were Jennifer Dixey, Warren Keuffel, Emilie Nouveau, Jakob Perry, John Sechrest, and David Sienko.

Google Summer of Code 2011

Hi Hamsters!

Google Summer of Code is an effort by Google to create space and time for mentoring and great projects to emerge based on student work. For the past few years there has been a concerted effort by Drupalfolk to get Drupal-oriented projects into GSoC, and this effort has been very successful. GSoC is now gearing up for the 2011 version, and ideas are needed. So are mentors.

What great things would you like Drupal to do that it can't do now? (Or that it could do better?)

Connections with Seattle and Vancouver

I notice that there is a Drupal Meetup this thursday in Vancouver/Surrey.

You can see the meetup notice here:

http://www.meetup.com/surrey-drupal/events/14698917/

I wonder if there is any interest in going up to events like this in Vancouver or going down to Drupal events in Seattle from time to time?

Any thoughts on how we might step up the conversation about drupal a bit thru cross fertilization/

Start: 
2010-11-04 19:00 - 21:00 UTC
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

I'll be giving a presentation on comparing Microsoft Access / Open Office Base at the monthly BLUG meeting held at BTC in Room D5 on Thursday, November 4th at 7pm.

It'll cover the differences between the applications, and why drupal is usually the better choice in most cases.

Some items:
Portability (using mamp and deploying several drupal instances locally)
Multi-user support
Leveraging CCK and Views to work like forms and reports
Cost
Ease of setting it up. (No code required!)

Let's Meet!

Howzabout an early November Bellingham Drupalers' meetup?

Purpose: Eat pizza, talk Drupal, reminisce about the grand time we had in Vancouver (or find out about it, for those who couldn't partake).

Speaker: You, maybe? Doing something with Drupal you'd care to share?

Time: 6:30ish?

Day of the Week: Um, Thursday? (Maybe the 2nd Thursday? Those of us who go to Van Drupal meetings as well - or would like to - could then get to have a Drupal get-together every two weeks.) In November, the 2nd Thursday is the 11th.

If others are game for this I'll find a meeting space at WWU.

Greetings Drupal Community!

It’s exciting times for Drupal in the Pacific Northwest. Planning for the October 2010 Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit in Vancouver, Canada is progressing nicely. Want to find out more, keep on reading!

The process started in earnest last year with a call for participation. From there we established an Organizing Committee and starting laying down the foundation for the conference. Although I was the one that kicked things off I’m extremely pleased to announce that Vanessa Turke of ImageX Media took on the role of Organizing Committee chair and is doing a wonderful job. The Organizing Committee would also like to acknowledge the support we’re getting from last year’s Seattle organizing committee.

Volunteers: Vanessa Turke, Vanessa [at] imagexmedia DOT com
Presenters/Keynotes: Chris Geoghegan, chris [at] imagexmedia DOT com
Training: Dale McGladdery, dale.mcgladdery [at] gmail DOT com
General Inquires: Vanessa Turke, Vanessa [at] imagexmedia DOT com

The Conference

Here’s what we’ve nailed down about the conference so far:

Date: October 2 & 3, 2010
Venue: UBC Robson Square, Vancouver, BC
Tracks: Developer
Design & Theme
Site Architecture & Administration
Business & Project Management
Birds of a Feather
