Denver / Boulder Colorado (DBUG)

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.

  • 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).
  • South Denver meetings are on the 2nd Monday of each month at Innovation Pavilion (Map).

Other ways to connect: The #drupal-colorado irc channel generally has many folks in it, happy to help with Drupal problems.

Continuing the "Drupal 8 for Newbies" series: this month, we'll explore how to write Drupal 8 modules. This will be a hands-on session, not a training presentation -- so bring your laptop with Drupal 8 installed, and we'll explore the topic together.

We'll examine what's changed in D8, how to organize your code, and resources for learning more. We're generally working from the process as described at https://www.drupal.org/developing/modules/8.

To kick off 2016, we have Michael Lander talking about using Paragraphs module as an alternative to Panels and Display Suite for page building. He’ll cover the initial module configuration, and transition to more of a philosophical approach to page building and the flexibility this approach provides.

  • How this approach gives clients more power to construct new landing pages, while restricting them to clearly defined components.
  • The benefits of using Paragraphs over Inline Entity Form for page building.
