Talk planning.

A place to start talking about talks (rather than talking about talking about talks).

Post details either of talks you are prepared to give or topics you would like to hear about. There are a number of options, and it doesn't need to be major commitment.

Talks could range from the lightning talk format similar to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning_talk to a more involved 30mins presentation. You don't even need to use slides. So five minutes show and tell on a killer module you have discovered for example.

Twitter feed and more.

Quick update on the twitter feed for this group https://twitter.com/drupalbristol

Hopefully the twitter feed will become one the main points of information for this group and Drupal in Bristol.

Follow @drupalbristol and if you appear to be Drupally and/or relevant it will follow you back (that includes Digital agencies, Software shops, Designers etc. etc).

If you tweet anything particularly significant and Drupally (including job vacancies IF they look genuine), then that will be re-tweeted to all the followers.

SWDUG Meetup - 14th August 2013, in Cardiff

Start: 
2013-08-14 18:00 - 21:00 Europe/London
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Just had confirmation through that we're okay to have another meetup on August 14th (and every second Wednesday thereafter).

Since there hasn't been a huge discussion, I'm going to leave comments open for any suggested talks, or requests for anything to be looked at. I'll bring a laptop along, and could do something on using Vagrant for your dev environment, maybe. But perhaps some folks might want to talk about actual Drupal ;-)

So once again, 6pm (or as soon as you can make it) August 14th, at The Owain Glyn Dwr in Cardiff. (http://www.theowainglyndwr.co.uk/find-us/)

Multiple images for a content type

hi all

i'm working on a product catalog for a store in drupal7.

for the products, we've got a number of gallery images which i'm currently handling in the content type as field_images and within the feed import as 'image1,image2,image3'.

the curve ball we've recently been dealt is that our product gallery images are now pairs of images so the client can specify a different file which can be used for the crop image.

feed import as 'image1|alt_image1,image2|alt_image2,image3|alt_image3'.

July meetup

Start: 
2013-07-03 19:00 - 23:00 Europe/London
Event type: 
User group meeting

Just realized, that the time is almost upon us and there is nothing on the group yet.

Also aware that I offered to do a talk the title would be "Custom Entities and their role in Drupal as a framework" (trips of the tongue doesn't it?)

I can put some slides together and chat about my thoughts resources etc., most of it will be online though (blog posts). Probably feel a bit odd if I am the only one but prepared to do that if someone provides a pint of Dutch courage ;).
