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.

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 :)

Employment type: 
Contract
Telecommute: 
Not allowed

Halo are after a contractor working on-site in Bristol (right next to Temple Meads) to do some Drupal theming work for 6 weeks beginning around the 22nd of September. It will most likely be on a couple of different projects for major festivals next year, so hopefully interesting work.

The bulk of the back-end config work will already be in place, so it’s really just building the front-end.

Here’s what we need:

• Drupal 7 Theming (Views templates, very basic php, etc)
• HTML5/CSS3
• Responsive Build
• Basic JQuery
• Twitter Bootstrap
• SASS
• Photoshop

Third Wednesday of the month from now on...

In case anybody has missed the tweets, poll etc. We are targeting the third Wednesday of the month for meetups from now on.

The main reason was to stop clashes with Devops Cardiff and PHPsw meetups.

There was a poll that ran for two weeks to confirm and we had three votes, two of which were me and someone I was in the office with at the time, it wasn't on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying "Beware of The Leopard" so if you don't like the new dates, you had your chance ;P
