YOUR HELP NEEDED: DrupalCon LA 2015 Tourist Wiki

People visiting our city to attend DrupalCon Los Angeles (May 11-15, 2015) will need to know how to get around L.A., and what there is to do outside of the conference. There will be social events each night of the conference, but not every drinks or dances or will only be enjoying our city at night so some daytime activities and family friendly points of interest should be compiled in this wiki.

Get your Drupal Dev Shop listed on the Silicon Beach Dev list

You may or may not know about the Silicon Beach "Secret" Facebook Group. If you're not a member, let me know and I'll add/invite you.

It's a pretty good feed of LA tech news etc, with links to related groups on jobs, events, etc.

Important to this discussion is there's a Freelance Developers / Dev Shops document that has a list (and commentary) on local dev shops.

Assistance for core mentoring booth at DrupalCon LA 2015

Hello Drupal LA community,

The core mentoring team is setting up a booth for DrupalCon LA 2015 to invite attendees to contribute to drupal by participating in the Mentored Core Sprints and the First-Time Sprinter Workshop.

For the booth, we need a flat screen monitor that can handle a usb stick with slides on it. This will be used to present the sprints' schedule, and BoFs information. We have limited budget so we kindly ask the local community for help on meeting this requirement. Can some lend us a monitor for use during the event?

Thanks for any support you can provide us!

What about having a core admin module that allows admins to change text-format for multiple nodes?

In the earlier versions of Drupal many administrators and or Content managers have been stuck with either running queries on the database manually or going through by hand to change the text format for multiple nodes. I have seen many colleagues inquire about this issue. An example would be to import feed items through the feeds module while forgetting to set the text format for the target node. After these items are imported to Filtered-html, images may not show in teasers, etc. Therefore in order to allow these items to become visiible, multiple changes in these nodes are required.

No Main Monthly Meetup on March 10, 2015

We were unable to secure a venue for the March 2015 meetup. Please don't make a trip to West LA. A lot of us were tied up in things (such as planning Drupalcon LA!) this month, but we'll see everyone in April. If anyone is still interested in getting together (such a a social / "early after dark" event), please post a comment so we can figure out where to meet up.
