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.

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?

There are some early bird tickets left if you're not feeling that brave but want to come along.

Cheers

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?
