Join us for Devsigner (designers + developers) Conference in Portland this May

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.

More information and registration: devsignercon.com

Introduction

Hey I finally got around to joining this group and just wanted to post a quick introduction. Looking through the member list I recognize a few of you. I met Chris Shattuck and Jeremy Zerr at Boise Code Camp last year after attending their sessions. James Glasgow also put on a module building presentation last year that I enjoyed. If my memory serves me correctly I attended a presentation that Clint Tinsley did on CakePHP the year before that.

January BDUG

In lieu of having an in-person meetup this month, I'd like to have a discussion about what we'd like the user group to be. I remember a couple years ago when we had ~20-30 people attending regularly. I'd love to get the user group attendance back up to that point, and I'm wondering what would make the user group worthwhile to attend.

In the past, we've had lecture-style meetups. Recently, we've had "everyone get together and eat pizza and talk" meetups.

What would make BDUG a can't-miss event for you?

Thanks, and happy new year!

Online Meeting

Anyone interested in online meetings?

Some potential attendees at meetings might be transportation limited or just not want to burn the fuel required.

I'll volunteer my GoToMeeting license to host up to 25 participants. One of the participants would be the presenter; the others would be looking at the presenter's screen and we'd all be on a conference call.

Group Organizers: let me know if you'd like to try this.

Hey everyone,

Are we still interested in getting together for the BDUG meetups? Propeople is opening a Boise office and we'd love to host. When we get all set up, we should be able to accommodate 15-18 people in our conference room, which will be equipped with Apple TV (to display things with Airplay) (or HDMI or maybe VGA if you don't do the whole "Apple" thing).

Drupal Parents Meetup

I was talking with a couple other local Drupalers about the idea of having meetups oriented at kid-friendlienss. The idea is that many of us working parents get home and it's lame to bail on our spouses for any kind of meetup, and so we tend to not do it so often.

A place to meet

I just learned that the reason we haven't met in a six months is lack of a meeting room.

Let's change that. I have a spot with wifi, projectors/tv, heating, cooling and indoor plumbing. And the price is right. Free. It's at Fish and Game downtown Boise.

So, if that fits our budget, is the second Thursday of the month the day to schedule? Do we want to work in some social time as well/instead? Perhaps a social meetup one month and a presentation conference room style meeting the next month?

Let's do this (again).

Plan for Boise Code Camp Drupal sessions

What is the plan for presenting any Drupal at Boise Code Camp? It's coming up in one month. Maybe this has already been discussed in person by some folks, but I haven't seen it on here yet.

If you have submitted a session, or plan to submit a session, I'd encourage you to post it here.

I'm planning to do a presentation on Drupal performance tuning, but have not submitted it officially yet.

Thanks,

Help promote the Drupal training at BSU, July 14th!

We're all squared away for a room at BSU for the July 14th Mentored Training. At this point, we just need some power cords (I'll get that squared away) and promotion!

We have 40 available seats for the training, and I'm pretty sure we can fill it up. Drupal has a great presence in Boise, and trainings like this will help bring people in and up the learning curve.

Who this training could be good for:

  • Clients: This kind of training is great for clients to help them learn how to manage their Drupal sites, and to give them a feel for what's possible.

alter title path in views (that contain fractions)

Okay, can anyone help with this one?

I created a view, am using the title as a field, outputting this field as a link.

Problem is the title names contain fractions (i.e., 1/2, 1/4, etc.) so, the link uses the slash in the url and thus can't find my title that contain fractions.

Using Drupal 7.

Thanks,

Calendar with footer, using data from another content type.

Making a calendar of events. In the footer section, adding in a view of another content type which uses the 'Inherit contextual filters'.

I can 'Preview with contextual filters' and everything works great.
In the real window, the view in the footer never changes. It's like the contextual information never gets passed to the footer.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The fastest way to pick up Drupal

Hey Guys and Gals,
I am in Nampa, and just started with Drupal. I am stumbling, and could use some quick mentoring to get going. What is the fastest way to get familiar with Drupal?
I am working on getting the Answers module going, and am having trouble with it. Is anyone in the group using this module? I would love to get in touch in the very near future.
Thank you
