The Grand Rapids Drupal User Group (GRupal) is a collection of developers, designers, content managers, and businesspeople who use Drupal personally or professionally. We meet monthly, at 6PM on the second Monday of the month, at the Community Media Center: 1110 Wealthy Street (http://g.co/maps/5u89j), next to the Wealthy Theater. Our meetings involve presentations on technical topics, assistance with each others' projects, and social time for networking and relaxation.
Pichot and I are going to be talking about Drush - the Drupal shell. There are some wicked rad command line power tools that make installing and maintaining Drupal as easy as cake. If anyone has any specific questions relating to Drush we can address them during our presentations.
Sorry it's taken so long to post the notes from our GRupal meetup last week (some of you know my ongoing battle with signing on to GDO/Drupal; every week, it's different). Anyway, here are some notes based on my understanding. Attendees, please fill in the gaps!Read more
on site in Kalamazoo, MI
We are seeking a developer, not specifically for Drupal but we could certainly use someone ( or two someones) with experience in the LAMP or LAPP stack.
We do have a Drupal site that was started, but needs a lot of work.
Internally, we are on Symfony & PostgreSQL.
Our IT folks tend to have their fingers in everything from Android and Asterisk to Kernels to Webapps.
If you are looking for work in the Kalamazoo area, drop a resume on us !
So I feel i should know how to do this, but I've either forgot how or I'm missing something obvious.
I want to create a view that filters recent Forum posts to the current, active user. In other words, each user is able to see just his or her recent Forum posts or Forum comments.
I realize there is a User filter for Currently logged in user. I also realize this may involve an "argument." But i can't seem to limit the list of recent Forum activity just to one's own.
Last night towards the end of the evening Pichot, Qwert, and myself were musing about setting up a #grupal IRC channel - today, on a whim, my friend NotTwo and I did! So join up all ye IRC users
grupal on freenode.net!!
Let's get together and talk about how awesome DrupalCon was. Attendees will share our experience with those unable to go, as well as brief each other on the different sessions we all went to.
It appears that we've agreed our next meetup should be Monday, February 21st. We'll be meeting at 1110 Wealthy St SE at 6pm.
As was decided at the end of our last meeting, I'll be talking about the Context module. (http://drupal.org/project/context)
I'll give an overview of what it does, why it's needed, and how it works. Expect a demo. I'd also love to give everyone access to some test server so you can follow along on your own computers. We'll see.
Afterwards, of course, we'll head to the Winchester. I hope to see many of you there!

Also must be able to demonstrate ability to code using industry standards in an efficient fashion and consistent quality.
Is anyone interested in a D7 release party on Friday? Dries and Webchick want us to have one :)
We are getting together Monday, so I don't know if it's necessary - but figured I should throw it out there. I would go if others are interested, but I don't feel like planning it - I'm a little planned out right now.
In this meeting we'll take a look at sub-theming. Ross will get us started with a short overview of sub-theming using the Zen theme as an example. After he explains the why and how of creating a subtheme, we'll then ask others in the group to jump into the discussion with their own take on why and how to begin sub-theming. If time permits, we'll begin to build in the Zen theme and work with the CSS.
It's everyone's favorite time of month again! We have really been dropping the ball in terms of deciding what we are going to do ahead of time. So I propose a good old fashioned show and tell unless someone has a topic they would like to present on.
We can have a couple people present 15 minutes each on a module/view/theme etc. of their choosing.
What do you guys think?
And as always we will hit up the Winchester immediately following.
Hey guys, I'm looking for a themer for a client of mine. I need a theme developed out of .psd's. I think that the CSS is mostly written, and in CSS3 and HTML5. Can ANYONE help me with this? Let me know if you're interested, and I'll give you the details.

At the last Drupal meetup several people expressed interest in a "general development" meetup in addition to the Drupal meetup. Before I go starting my own meetup group, it looks like SoftwareGR may be just what I had in mind. I plan on checking out their next meetup and I'd like to invite you all to join me. Here are the details:
When: December 14th, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Where: Atomic Object, 941 Wealthy St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49506
Hey everyone, I was asked to start this discussion Forum. This is meant to discuss the things we wish to talk about when it comes to the meetings. So, I'll start:
I would love to learn more about Views. How to use them, when to use them, and when to use Custom Modules via the Bulk Export. This subject really interests me, and I can't wait to learn more.
So what should we do at our next meetup?
I could possibly talk a little bit about Drupal 7 since I have it installed on Ross Hunter's personal blog But I sure could not talk for an hour on it, and I really don't know much about the changes under the hood.
I would like to see something like
Plus we have talked before about many other topics. It would be nice if someone would volunteer to do a presentation.
Let's try to get this locked down by the end of the week.
I found this randomly and found it quite interesting.
