Design and Implement a new www.gryp.org using Drupal | Grand Rapids Young Professionals

Employment type: 
Contract
Telecommute: 
Not allowed

The Grand Rapids Young Professionals (GRYP) organization is looking for a partner to redesign and implement their site (http://www.gryp.org) using Drupal. The current site was written on top of a really old version Joomla. The customizations that were done to the site do not lend well to upgrading, so the intent is to start from scratch. Please contact me if you are interested or know of anyone that may be interested: ronslocum@gryp.org

West Michigan developers only.

Thanks,
Ron

Grand Rapids Meetup next Monday

I remembered we are going to talk about D6 --> D7 conversion an next Monday's Grand Rapids Drupal Meetup.

I have one site (my own: Itcetera.com ) - a rather simple one - custom template but mostly html formated info pages and blocks built with CCK and Views plus the D6 blog.

If you wanted to use this site as the test case - I could set up a D7 new install on Media Temple for it (the current site is on a different server that I have access to but intend to move the site to Media Temple this month - so all my Drupal sites are in one place.).

GRupal Facebook Group!

Hello all,

I just created a Facebook group for GRupal. (https://www.facebook.com/groups/208956279194113/) I'm guessing more people check Facebook than Groups.Drupal.org, so I thought it would be a great way to bring more attention to the user group.

A small group of pioneering GRupalers had started a Facebook group a few years ago, but its on the old fb group system and its slated to be archived soon. If any of you are in that group you'll need to join this group.

November GRupal Meetup - Tips and Techniques for Estimating Drupal Work

Start: 
2011-11-14 06:00 America/Detroit
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

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!

Michiana Drupal User Group, introduce yourselves

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.
