Christmas dinner!

Start: 
2016-12-15 18:30 - 21:30 UTC
Event type: 
Related event (ie. not Drupal specific)

Hey! Following on the back of my post from a few weeks ago here, it's time to announce the date for this year's Christmas dinner. This year it'll be on the 15th December.

From discussion at the meetup at Torchbox, we've agreed to just turn up for drinks and pizza and see where the night takes us. There are also rumours of a bar tab at Colston Yard that needs to be taken care of before the end of the year... oh, although I was supposed to keep that quiet so that Tom, Rob and I could have £200 worth of drinks to ourselves :D

[DCMuc16] Can you smell the gingerbread and hot spiced wine? DrupalCamp Munich 2016 is coming

Hey Drupalistas!
We are just a few blinks away from the DrupalCamp Munich 2016 (31.11.-02.12.2016 CodeSprints @ Burda Media // 03.12.-04.12.2016 DrupalCamp @LMU Munich). As you know, this is our 2nd Camp after the great (and 1st) DrupalDevDays in 2010, and we think we will be great hosts again.

So, it's your part to submit your session prosposals until 14th of november and to be part of the special spirit of a camp with friends, Drupal, PHP, Symfony, beer, a lot of socializing, food, another beer, coffee, code sprints, very special welcome-bags, ...
We are thankful of our sponsors so we have a special prizing for students and WWCode. Please contact us for further information.
We look forward to seeing you at DrupalCamp Munich 2016 and to drinking a mug or two of "Gluhwein" or bavarian beer together.

Greetings from our Team

Somehow I managed to volunteer to organise this year's Christmas dinner at the last talk night. (As well as everything else, whoops...)

To make it easier, I've created a Doodle poll of some possible dates. Whichever gets the most votes by the end of next week's talk night will be the date we go for dinner.

Here's a list of suggestions for food:
* Wahaca
* Wagamama's
* Sticks 'n' Broth
* Las Iguanas
* Pizza Express
* Turtle Bay
* ZeroDegrees

People building d8 sites...

Hi,

To all the people building drupal 8 sites, how are you finding it so far?

How are you working around the fact that some big contrib modules still aren't ready?
Writing your own custom modules, or building simpler sites?

Also, who's going to drupalcamp next week?

Cheers,
Derek.

Schumacher College looking for Drupal people

Hello,

I hope all are well and happy, and that this is the correct format and location for this post.

I've been asked to post this on behalf of a client who are about to embark on a Drupal 7 'social network' project to fit within an existing Drupal-friendly set up (D7, SugarCRM, Jitterbit, Moodle, etc.). They're a good bunch and it could be a friendly, long-term relationship with a neat evolving service worth looking into.

Here it is:

Christmas thing?

We've done a Christmas meal and/or drinks for the last couple of years. Would anyone be interested in doing the same this year?

If we want to do a meal somewhere, we should probably get numbers and something booked a fair time in advance.
