Welcome to the Groups site for the Denver/Boulder Drupal Users Group, where we discuss, share and find ways to provide local face-to-face interaction which can support activities like hosting speakers, providing tutorials, Question and Answer sessions, establishing relationships with others in the geographic area, and generally expand the community of Drupal users.
Schedule of meetings
- Boulder meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. Locations vary.
- Central Denver meetings on the 4th Tuesday of each month at Open Media Foundation (Map).

Other ways to connect: The #drupal-colorado irc channel generally has many folks in it, happy to help with Drupal problems.
While the group is primarily focused on Denver/Boulder, people in Fort Collins, Lyons, the mountains, the Western Slope or the plains are certainly welcome. Heck, we've even had folks from Wyoming and other surrounding states come by.
Discussions and wikis
With the switch to OOP and the inclusion of many parts of the Symfony framework, Drupal 8 has (finally) moved into the modern era of web development best practices. Together with Marc Issacson (vegantriathlete), let's have a look at how some of those best practices are being put to use within Drupal 8.Read more
Can anyone recommend a developer who could migrate a site from HTML into Drupal 7, probably before the end of the year? I don't yet have a formal RFP or job to offer, but would like to have a couple potential contractors to contact to see what they think the job might take.

This week, Gabe Sullice is going to show us how to write some simple unit tests for Drupal 8 and how to run them. If you've never tested before, this night is for you. We're going to start from scratch and work our way up to a working Controller/Service test suite in Drupal 8.
Pizza and socializing starts at 6:30 p.m.
Discussion and presentations start at 7.
At 8:30 we'll head down to Renegade Brewing Co to continue hanging out
The meet-up will take place at Open Media Foundation, just south of Downtown Denver. 700 Kalamath St. Denver, CO 80204Read more
This month we are excited to have Neil Cousineau joining us to talk about access control. Access control is a vital part of any website as it determines which users can do what actions. It also allows you to hide certain data from users who are not allowed to view it.
Getting this setup correctly can be a tricky venture. Neil has quite a bit of experience with this at E Source and he's going to give us some tips on how to get this done correctly to ensure your secrets aren't leaking out.
As always, there will be great food and beer available for all.Read more
A new year is upon us, let's start it off right. This month we'll have an open discussion about the next year of the Central DBUG. This is your chance to help shape our meetups, and voice ways to make them more valuable to the community. What topics would it be good to hear about for Drupal in 2017? For the internet and technology as a whole? Do you have something you've been itching to talk about? What things worked, and what could have been done better last year? How are you liking the pizza orders? We want to hear from you, so bring your thoughts.Read more
Last month there was a brief discussion about what we should do for this month's meetup. Since it would fall a couple days before Thanksgiving, I've heard suggestions for "Drupal Games" or a "Drupal Iron Chef" night. Are there any other ideas for a lighter meetup that anyone wants to suggest?Read more
This month we'll be doing an Agile round-table discussion. Prepare for an open conversation about the things we're doing that's working, or things we've tried that isn't working. Are there parts of Agile that you find impossible to do, or parts that are indispensable to your team's success?
Should time permit, we'll close with a brief show and tell. Bring any tools or modules you think someone should know about, and be ready to talk about them for about five minutes!
Pizza and socializing starts at 6:30 p.m.
Discussion and presentations start at 7.Read more

Hey Boulder and Denver Drupal Folks,
My name is Sarah Murray and I am the director for a global nonprofit that works on girls' rights and sport. Our web platforms (guides.womenwin.org, womenwin.org, goalprogramme.org) are all built on Drupal CMS. I am looking for a local Drupal developer to help us with a few projects in Q4 2016. If you have time and are interested, please let me know. The project is basically a redesign of our existing organizational site and a replication of one of our other platforms for a project in Brazil .
