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.
So we didn't actually talk about Estimating Drupal Work last month since Brett contracted an ugly case of strep throat just before the meetup. He's feeling much better and is already prepped, so we're good to go!
As always, Winchester afterward. Looking forward to seeing everyone!
Looking for an intern who wants to work on a real project (already well underway) and learn about Drupal. Must be a competent programming and have some working knowledge of PHP.
Only a few more weeks until our next GRupal meetup. This month we'll have Brett Chaffer of Rapid Development Group talking about his experience estimating Drupal work. He may also divulge some tips on how to run a successful Drupal shop.
We had also talked about a little show-and-tell segment, which, since Brett's presentation won't be particularly technical, we will likely have time for afterward.
Of course, as all of you know, we'll head to the Winchester once it's all done.
Hope to see you there!
Hey, GRupalers! So I'm not representing this org, but I met them back in September and spent a week with them learning about their project, how they planned to proceed. It's a pretty exciting data visualization/community engagement project based in Denver that is riding the edge of journalism/civic media development. Take a look and contact Matthew Barry at the Piton Foundation if you're interested!

For those of us stuck halfway between Chicago, Indianapolis, and Grand Rapids, this groups is for you.
My name is Brandon Morrison, and I've been a Michiana resident for about 3 years. I've been developing in Drupal for about 5-6 years, and I'm a co-maintainer of the Geofield and Openlayers modules. I've been a semi-regular attender of the Chicago and Indy groups for awhile now, but a few of us here in South Bend wanted to start a mini-group here in South Bend.Read more
In the Winter Semester (begins in January of 2012 through early May) I will be teaching a 15-week course at GVSU called Advanced Writing for the World Wide Web. (WRT 380-6). It is a course designed for writing majors and minors, but it is also popular with students in advertising, computer science, journalism, business, and other areas).
The course will meet once a week on Wednesday nights from 6:00-8:50 on the Allendale campus in one of the computer labs.Read more
To all non-profit GRupalers, the Drupal Association is giving away 50 half-off tickets ($175 rather than $350) to the upcoming DrupalCon. Check out the details by following the link below:
I need a developer for a straight-forward Drupal 7 site development. I do a lot in Drupal myself, but it is more of a hobby for me. Now I have a site that I put up and some data that needs to be set up on the site via Fields and Taxonomies. I believe it is fairly straightforward, but I lack the time. As far as I can tell, this can be done with out of the box solutions and no customizations beyond the standard tools and modules. In short, we have 1,800 nodes, and they will all have several children nodes. We need someone to import those into Drupal 7, then set up the Views and filters.Read more
The Rapidian's having its second birthday on Sept. 15, and I'd like to invite all of you to join us over at Wealthy Theatre's microcinema (1130 Wealthy SE). I think it'll probably be interesting to you theming nerds and maybe ecommerce, too (George and Ron will correct me if I'm wrong here). We'll be taking down The Rapidian, which is based on Drupal, to overhaul the site and relaunch it with a completely new design (all George--he's got some mad design prowess) as well as some additional features that are pretty nifty (Ron is a pretty rad developer and a little shy, in case you haven't met him). Some site architecture, too.
Please do come down. There will be either cake or cookies, maybe some punch and confetti. But all in all, a good time. Mingling starts at 4:30p, presentation at 5p and then time to bombard George and Ron shortly after.
The September meetup is upon us! I'll be talking about the Organic Groups module (http://drupal.org/project/og). What it's for, why it can be useful, and how it can also be annoying.
We're meeting, as always, at the CMC offices at 1110 Wealthy Street (http://g.co/maps/5u89j).
And, of course, we'll head to Winchester for drinks, food, and conversation afterward.
Oh, and since dennypenny will be absent, she's provided us an icebreaker ahead of time: What memorable movie did you see this summer?
Hope to see many of you there!
I have been searching and have found no way to get views slideshow to display the way that would look best for my site. I feel like this is a big favor to post if anyone tries to mess with it or maybe/hopefully I am missing something obvious that one of you already is aware of? :)Read more
Looking for a freelance Drupal developer to help develop a community based website for a local professional organization. Layout and functional requirements are establshed (but flexible), and we need someone capable of refining and implementing. We're hoping to have a working mockup of the site up by Sep. 23rd. The project leader on the client side has experience with Drupal but doesn't have the expertise or time to fully develop the site. This will be a paying job and we're comfortable working with someone on a T&M basis.
