Chris Charlton's picture

2015-08-11 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles

Join us August 11, 2015 (7PM-9PM) for a night of how-to sessions about the very important Entities layer in Drupal 7 & 8. There will be material for all levels: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced users.

Based on the feedback from February's meetup and our successful meetup structure from last year, we are going to continue our site building series with 2-3 short how-to sessions from community members. We will demonstrate Entity API best practices and some modules that help the process.

Learn how to stop using LANGUAGE_NONE or ['und'] in your Drupal code! Also, if there is time, we'll have some lightning talks at this meetup as well.

Google OAuth2 Service Account module

As some of you know, I've written a pair of modules dealing with the Google client API library. I've just submitted an issue to review the module that supports OAuth 2.0 service account connections and promote it to full module status. The issue is at which points to the project. The module is designed to deal with updates to the Google client library. It's used by my sandbox module, Google Calendar Merge, at which allows a user to import data from Google calendars as individual events.

Anyone up for an informal meetup this evening?

The meetup tonight got cancelled and it was going to be one of my last LA meetups for a while. So I'm wondering if anyone else would be up for an informal meetup this evening (a earlier starting after dark :)). Also suggestions for a location would be welcome.

Burbank Drupal meetup on haitus and/or seeking organizer

Greetings all,

There have been a lot of changes in the lives of the organizers of the Burbank/Glendale/SF Valley meetup in the past several months, with babies being born or soon to be, office spaces let go, and so on. As a result, the folks who were taking on the responsibility of putting on the meetups aren't going to be able to for the immediate future. It's been a few months since a meetup was last scheduled, but this is the official notice that the group is on indefinite hiatus.

The Romantic Truth Community consolidates a dating site, online showcase, and advice column blog into one community that will use Drupal8, BootStrap Theming, and a SQLite backend. The purpose of the site is to test the viability of the site upon completion in respect to functionality.

The core modules, rules, and later Design Suites and Organic Groups will be ported and used. The bulk of the system will consist of views and content types.
