#IRC, it's not a hashtag

IRC #drupal-florida is one of our best kept secrets. It's a great place to ask questions, brainstorm, or just chat. Here is a short guide to get you started if you fall into one of the following categories:

  1. You don't know what irc is
  2. You haven't been on irc since 1990
  3. You didn't know that Florida had their own channel
  4. No one ever answers your questions in the "big channels"
  5. The bot scares you

Come join us on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at 6:30pm at Ryan's Village Pizza in Cocoa Village. Come for Pizza, Beer, Wine, Learning and Friendship!!

A while back I had to customize a entityform form. Try as I might, I just could not find a module to do what I needed. So, I had to take that dread plunge into the the dark work of php, Drupal hooks and functions, and arrays of deaths. Other than additional head trauma, I survived.

drupal developer: mix of front-end and back-end | localwild, inc

Employment type: 
Part time
Employment type: 
Contract
Telecommute: 
Allowed

We are a Gainesville-based tech company specializing in support and sales of neurofeedback systems.

Our website is based on drupal commerce kickstart, but has some issues that may be trivial for someone with experience in this area. Or not, i don't know. I have some experience with drupal dev, but mostly limited zen theme/front-end stuff (some sass/compass cli too).

Ideally we'd like someone who is open to developing a working relationship with us, though we're open to some contract work to start with, to see if it's a good fit.

Anybody down in SW Florida?

I recently moved to Naples from Orlando to live closer to family. I'm wondering if there are any other Drupal folks down this way? I thought maybe we could organize a get together or possibly a meetup if there are enough of us.

Let me know if you're down here and might be interested.

Omega, Views, Panels oh my!

I am curious. I am sure what I am wanting to do has been done before. I am attempting to build a theme using omega as the parent. I would like for the content zone to contain(at least on the homepage) a slider of images in the background with fixed-column-paneled content on top of it.

In other words the slider moves behind the paneled content.

Has anyone attempted this? I would think a zlayer css-magic trick could make this happen. unfortunately I have been unsuccessful. Thoughts?
