After helping out in this year's Florida Drupalcamp, I began to wonder if there was a better way to get a working Drupal installation on attendees computers. With the wide variety of operating systems and configurations and the often unreliable wifi situations, why not package a live cd that users can boot to with everything they need?
I had just updated Crunchbang Statler and noticed a very handy install script that basically added a LAMP environment along with git and a few other things.Read more

A little theming, a little content type development and more. Follow the development process of the combined experience levels of the group.

The 8th meetup for the Tampa Bay Drupal users group is next Thursday, April 7th @ 6pm.
For this next meetup, we had planned on having a presentation on the Views module, which was to be given by myself. A week or so ago ultimike put out a call for the local Florida Drupal groups to help wrap up the "Coding for a Cause" event that was started at the last FL DrupalCamp. Some of the Tampa group members decided we'd like to help with that, so we've volunteered our collective resources to help out during our next meetup.Read more
We are in the early planning stages for Drupalcamp Atlanta 2011 and wanted to throw Saturday, October 8th out as a potential date.

Finally, interested in volunteering? We will begin to tee up committee meetings soon. If you would like to help out please reach out to me at dave dot terry at mediacurrent dot com

We are looking for a talented Drupal developer who can help relaunch a new improved version of our site; adventurebound.com. Applicants should be proficient in customizing drupal modules and possibly building drupal modules from scratch. We do not want someone hacking their way through our development process with just .PHP.
This is a large project and will probably be something we launch in stages. I need someone long term who can hang around and help with future projects as well.Read more
Coding for a Cause April is on! Thanks to the excellent response from user groups around the states to my initial posting, we have had six user groups around the state step up and volunteer to help out.
This past weekend, during the Orlando meetup, we worked with Hewie and Shelia from CFCS to divide up most of the remaining tasks in order to launch the new CFCS.org site on Drupal 7. I've sent emails to all the user groups who responded with all the details.Read more

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of rolling out my first Drupal mobile site! After listening to Drupal founder Dries Buytaert talk about the mobile web taking over, I lit a fire under myself to get this done.
Dries' Presentation Slide
Luckily, I discovered it’s easy as pie in Drupal:
The modules that I had to install to get it functioning well are collapsiblock, menu block, and mobile tools.
- Menu Block enables you to take a certain subsection of your Drupal menu system, and display it in a block.
- Finally, Mobile Tools does the grunt work, and detects mobile devices. If it finds a mobile device user-agent, it redirects them to m.gatortailgating.com, and also switches the theme to your mobile them.
The final amount of work was just straight up D6 theming. I created a copy of the custom GatorTailgating.com theme, and modified the page.tpl.php and associated CSS files.
The final time it took to put this together was something around 6 hours… which to me is pretty amazing. It really speaks to Drupal’s power. Check it out on your IPhone, Droid or (hopefully not..) Blackberry!
PS. For all you Gator Drupaler's out there. We're having a huge Orange & Blue Game tailgate. Stop by and I'll throw you some free food & beer!Read more
Greetings everyone - just wanted to check to find out more info on meetups in NW Florida - Tallahassee in particular? I've seen a lot of posts about meetups elsewhere, but wanted to see if they're actually happening up here in this neck of the woods?
All the info can be found here:
For the second consecutive year, we failed to complete the Coding for a Cause site during Florida DrupalCamp. We need to rectify this, and I'd like to suggest a solution. I just posted this in the description for the Orlando meetup, but I was afraid not everyone would see it, so I'm semi-reposting (so I'm only semi-lame) it here.Read more
