Welcome to the New Jersey Drupal Group. Our goal is to bring together New Jersey based Drupalers for professional and social networking, knowledge sharing and to meet other like minded folks in our area who are passionate about Drupal!
We had a very enjoyable meetup this past Tuesday - 14 people came representing educational instutions, companies, consultants, local political groups, and themselves!
The discussion went strong for about two and half hours, and one of the later topics was possible timing and topics for future meetups.
The timing for future meetups was suggested as once per month or once per two months. If they are more frequent, meetups may be more casual and unstructured, while others might have a more focused program.
Among the suggestions (in no special order):Read more
In the months since we successfully pulled off the first Philly Area DrupalCamp (PADCamp) we have had some discussions (most recently at DrupalCon) about whether we should focus on throwing another PADCamp, or whether we should try to work with our neighbors to the North and South of Philly to create a Mid-Atlantic DrupalCamp (MADCamp). I don't have the specific numbers, but at the PADCamp there were tons of people from New York City, Washington DC, Harrisburg, and lots of places in between, so to some degree it was already a MADCamp. What I'd like to try to see for this Camp is a little more regional cooperation and outreach, so I'm curious to know whether anyone from the DC, Maryland, Central PA, NJ, or NYC groups would be interested in helping to make this a reality.
I am proposing that we have the first MADCamp in Philly, due to it's central location on the East Coast and the fact that the Philly group is trying to move the idea forward. However, I'm personally open to hearing ideas for hosting it in other cities, and one of the bigger goals I would have for the Camp is to get more regional cooperation and coordination amongst the groups. I attend NYC DrupalCamps and DC BarCamps (don't think there's been a DC DrupalCamp- has there?), and I've seen many of the same faces at many of these events.
So, if we're going to move forward with this idea, here are some things that need to be decided:Read more
The first New Jersey Drupal meet-up, to be held on the lovely campus of Princeton University. Come discuss Drupal, the DC Drupalcon, etc. We can do a run though at the end of my Drupalcon presentation "Module Development Kickstart" if people are interested in getting started coding.
The meet-up is being co-sponsored by the "Princeton Unix Users' Group" (an undergraduate group).
We will meet in the Rockefeller residential college classroom (in Madison hall). See below for map and more details.Read more

Hi all just a heads up there are a few meetups that happen in northern NJ that are web technology related. An example of one such meetup is http://softwaredev.meetup.com/74/ . There are a larger and larger group of people that seem to be interested in Drupal in Northern NJ and I will discuss further this evening if we will start having Northern NJ Drupal meetups. I was initially going to start a North Jersey group here on G.D.O.Read more
Please comment if you'd be interested in having a meet-up next month after Drupalcon DC.
Is a weekend day or weekday evening better?
Do you have something you'd like to present or something you want to learn?Read more
I managed to get Drupal 6.9 running on my site (hooray) and am now looking at constructing a theme.
The basic design spec for the theme calls for 21 cells of identical height and width, floating in three equally-spaced columns having a total width of 800 pixels.
Drupal gives me the choice of defining the basic layout with either a cascading style sheet (CSS) or an HTML table.
My big question relates to the performance of a template using an HTML Table vs. a CSS:
(1) Will Drupal serve a page faster with a layout having a CSS design, or with an HTML Table design?Read more
firstname.lastname@example.org is really Walt Daniels, chief techy volunteer for the New York - New Jersey Trail Conference. I have been running their website www.nynjtc.org since 1996. We are about to announce a complete redo on March 1, but you can get a sneak preview at http://new.nynjtc.net. Our offices are in Mahwah, NJ but I live in NY.
We have a small group of content people madly plugging away at filling the empty spaces. However the techy end could use some help doing things I just haven't figured out yet. I am quite willing to share with others so we all reach out goals faster.Read more
