User group meeting

UPDATE: We have finalized the presentations for our Drupal-mobile integration SFDUG next Monday. Check it out here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/16074#comment-56347

Since we essentially missed last month's SF DUG (Dave, Kieran and I chatted random things Drupal over beer), I wanted to give a big heads-up to next month's SF DUG.

Mobile anyone? I'm looking for presenters with experience integrating mobile access into their Drupal website. E.g. SMS alerts, register by phone, post by phone, WAP or .mobi implementation, etc. If you've done some of this, or know someone who has, let me know!

I've been working on a couple sites involving SMS alerts, register by phone, post by phone and could probably do a little presentation.

Awesome!

That would be great. I can also demo a camera-phone-to-Drupal-workflow, but it's using the phone email gateway, so it's a bit of a cheat.

Also, check out the MobileTech for Social Change event (I refuse to call a $25 event - however worhty - a barcamp...). It's on Election Day!

I could also do a presentation, I work for a company in the mobile field that uses Drupal as a CMS and we have modules in place to deliver content (images, video, and audio) to mobile devices via SMS (text links to content) and MMS (Aggregator required). The CMS can transcode source file types to compatible types for various mobile devices using our device database which is also stored in Drupal. Lastly we have also been doing work on wap themes for our Drupal sites. Let me know if any/all of these topics would be of interest!

Hell yeah!

I would love to see that - all of it!

  • Content delivery (incl MMS)
  • Compatible device source transcoding
  • Wap theming

That would be far more comprehensive than my little dog and pony show.

This would be a good companion piece to what Mark was going to cover

  • Register by phone
  • Post by phone
  • SMS alerts (covering the basics)

Are there copies of the presentation anywhere online?
Or can someone email me a copy? I'm really interested
in learning more on the topics that were discussed.

Thanks!

No, sorry....

The individual presenters might have notes, but my webcast recording of it failed immediately. (Guest account for presenters + SnapzPro recording + guest account resetting after you log out = no recording... :-(....)
