I am producing/directing a documentary film on an iconic movie theatre. It is a project that has already garnered some significant visibility, but not a lot of money, yet.
I am looking for someone who can take our current Drupal site, upgrade it and make it sing the way it should. There is no money until we get the financing rolling. There is a budget line item for web development.
This will be a fun project with potential for bucks.
Release date is in May 2015. The expectation of film fests and a national posture are not unrealistic.Read more

A Get involved with core sprint will take place in Boston on December 7th, 2013. We’re still working on finding a venue around Boston/Cambridge, but we wanted to give the local community a heads up so you can mark you calendars for December 7th. The format of the day will be similar to the Get involved with core sprints that regularly happen at DrupalCons. All levels of contributors are welcome to participate, and we’re also looking for mentors to help newbies learn to navigate the issue queue, git, Drupal APIs, etc.
Stay tuned for the details which will be posted once we have a venue!
Hello Boston Drupalers!
I am visiting Boston this December and was wondering if anybody here can help me with recommendations for things I should do while I am there? Are there drupal meetups between December 5 to December 23 that I can be a part of? Would any of you be interested in shouting out for a meetup?
Also, I will be staying with my friends in Boston, but I have been an active couchsurfer and thought I would check if any drupaler in Boston likes the idea of hosting travelers for a day or two. (I could bring Indian delicacies with me) :-)
Also, also, It is the first time I am travelling outside my country - the Incredible India, and honestly, I am both a little anxious and excited at the same time. (They keep telling me bad stories about the December cold in Boston, US immigration, how first time travelers to the States lose their baggage, get mugged and such things!) #bad-humorRead more
We were just testing push notifications on two of our newer apps and ran into a two problems that our Titanium developer has determined to be on the Drupal side and he believes they have the same root issue.
When I send an iOS push from the integratedtemplate CMS, we receive the message 5 or more times all in a row.
When I send a push from Bika it says it was sent to 521 iOS devices, but I know for a fact that only 3 people have that build downloaded because it is still being tested. Also, even though it says it sent, none of the 3 known testers have received it.Read more

so, i bought three tickets to kanye/kendrick as a gift for three kids who can not go on the 17th (it's at td garden)...and now i'm sitting on 3 awesome seats: Loge 2, Row 4 - all side-by-side seats, right in front of the floating center stage/island thing!
these are the physical tickets (via stubhub), and while i was gonna sell them, i thought maybe there was a local drupal guru who may be able to help me out with some bootstrap stuff and a couple of small pesky items on my development site in return for, wait for it, ALL three tickets!Read more
