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.

- 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.

Discussions and wikis
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 .
I'm excited that we are going to have Gabe Sullice (@gabesullice) come out and give a talk on Drupal 8 module development.Read more
Drupal 8 has allowed for the integration of modern workflows into the Drupal community. The transition to Twig as the templating engine specifically provides the space to integrate new patterns and tools into your frontend workflow. Pattern Lab is a static site generator that provides a structure for developing a templating and theming framework based on atomic design. The Twig version of Pattern Lab, along with the Data Transform plugin written by Aleksi Peebles, creates the possibility to integrate Pattern Lab directly into your Drupal project.Read more
I'm trying to put sponsor logos on specific events.
Some of the logos are in a package - so they appear on a number of the events.
Some of the logos only appear on a specific event.
Is there a way to use taxonomy and context so that the logos appear on the pages that have the same taxonomy term?
Example: Halloween event is tagged with "Large Community Event" and "Halloween." Subsequently, all logos that are tagged with EITHER "Large Community Event" OR "Halloween" automatically appear on the page.Read more
The Colorado CMS Meetup group is featuring Drupal (with an emphasis on Commerce 2.x) at its September meeting. I did a short introductory presentation on Drupal generally at their inaugural meeting this month, and it was well-received enough to do a deeper dive in September.Read more
Apologies for the late posting but we are still planning on having the Boulder DBUG meetup this week. This month we will be talking about getting ready for Drupal Camp this weekend. If you have a talk that you are giving this weekend and would like to promote it, this would be a great place to do it.
There will be food and beer provided and while the conversations sometimes stray off topic, they are generally pretty interesting.Read more
This month, Tom Hartung will show us the ins and outs of doing adaptive web design in popular content management systems, including Drupal. We’ll cover concepts like RESS and device detection, and why you’d want to integrate these tools into your projects. We’ll also discuss the promises and pitfalls of using techniques like RESS to do adaptive web projects.
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 outRead more
Hey all, I'm trying to get a presentation together around the use of Docker and Drupal. If you've used Docker in your Drupal (or other) workflow, I'd be interested in your notes or feedback.
I'm also looking for a few other smaller presentations so, if you've recently deployed a new site, or just have some stories about a site you've deployed in the past, please hit me up on the contact form @ https://www.drupal.org/user/154069/contact.Read more
