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.

Sprints?

After feeling inspired by the sprints at DrupalCon LA, and following on from the thoughts of mixing up the group activities, would anyone be interested in attending regular sprints in Bristol? Maybe one Saturday or a weekend a month?

I'd certainly be willing to provide some mentoring for new contributors, as well as helping out if anyone wants to do any work on Drupal.org itself or the conference organising distribution.

If people are interested, would any companies be willing to give us some space or provide lunch etc?

May social meetup

Start: 
2015-05-20 18:00 - 21:00 UTC
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Usual Drupal social at the Llandoger for beers and Drupal/tech discussions, all are welcome.

I can't make this one, but a couple of good things to discuss would be:

  • DrupalCamp Bristol - who's attending and submitting sessions?
  • Talk night in June? It's been a while since our last talk night (June 2014), so it might be good to do another one before the Camp? I'd like to see these more regularly (once a quarter, or more?)
  • Sprints?

[Free Webinar] Drupal 8: Frontend for Backenders

Start: 
2015-04-01 12:00 - 13:00 America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Drupal 8 will ship with a fancy new template engine (Twig) and a simpler theme layer. In this webinar, our speaker will show you some goodies from Twig and give you a walkthrough on how to get started with it.

He will also talk about the major problems that people were facing in working with Drupal 7 and what the community has done to make it better. This webinar will show - in both practical examples and on a broader scale - why Drupal 8 will make peace between backenders and frontenders.

Why Should You Attend This?

Talk night at PHPSW?

I was thinking the other day that it's been a while since the last Drupal Bristol talk night (July!?), and it would be good to do another one before DrupalCamp Bristol in July. This would give speakers a chance to have a trial run if they feel that they need to do so before the event.

I've been speaking with our friends at PHPSW, who are doing a WordPress night next week about doing something similar, and suggested maybe we do so in June? What are people's thoughts on this?
