[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?

Official DrupalCamp Bristol Committee

After a number of monthly meetings we now have an official DrupalCamp Bristol Committee.

We’ve been very busy with all the details and we aim to have an official announcement out within the next few weeks surrounding the actual event, but I wanted to take this chance to announce the official committee and to make everyone aware that the committee is now closed. This decision has been made to provide an appropriate structure and enforce decision making procedures where required. New members can now only be invited to join the committee if one of the existing members withdraws.

Looks like there is some appetite for Christmas Drinks, so lets the Yuletide spirit flow.
https://groups.drupal.org/node/450098

We have no organised meal but expect we will be grazing off of suitable local food venues later.

Early start in Llandogger Trow, moving on a little later as desired.

Comments etc. welcome below.

Communication channels: initially via twitter @drupalbristol for stragglers to catch up but expect we will come up with one or more others ways to let latecomers know when and where we are.

Christmas (any makers?)

Probably far too late to organise anything for Christmas.

Putting this up in case anybody wants to step forward an organise a Christmas social, even if just agreeing on somewhere to meet and have a few drinks and casual food with out booking a formal meal.

I have too many commitments to organise anything formal.

If nothing pops up here I will set up a social as usual for 17th Dec, I doubt I will interested in much Drupal talk by then it has been a long year (about 420 days I think).. Drink, food, good-natured complaining and making fun of each other should be the agenda.

A few things for Discussion

DRUPAGEDDON

War stories, strategies.

What about all those unmaintained sites lurking around, should the Drupal community stump up a bit of free time?

Strategies for dealing with sites we come across that may be compromised, all very well moaning about best practices, backups etc. but being realistic lots of people have Drupal sites they never really needed.

We are hoping to start up the discussion around a Drupal Camp for Bristol and the West at the next social this Wednesday.

This post is just a holding place for initial subsequent comments, links, etc. I will do my best to take some notes from the meetup and post them here.

I guess rough planned timings, possible venues etc. will be the first thoughts, it looks like some thought has already started on this :)
