Come nerd out with us over CSS, Javascript, theme functions and other interesting front-end tools. This meetup is held at the Clarity Innovation offices at 1001 SE Water Avenue, Suite 400.

3. Brewpal takes place on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 5pm at the Lucky Lab in NW Portland (1945 NW Quimby St, Portland, OR 97209). We meet, work on our projects, and ask questions of our neighbors with no formal agenda.

No need to RSVP, the meetings are open to all.

We're also on IRC in #drupal-pdx on freenode.net


JetBrains sponsors our meetup by raffling away 1 free PhpStorm license every meetup (2nd Wednesday).

August PDX User Group -- Lightning Talks

Start: 
2015-08-12 18:00 - 20:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Come out to the Metal Toad offices (522 SW 5th Ave.) this Wednesday for the August Drupal user group meetup.

This month we'll have Lightning Talks. If you choose, come prepared to talk for anywhere from zero to 5 minutes max on a subject somehow related to Drupal. The idea is to fit as many different topics into the meetup time that we can. No time to go into any depth, we just power through!

Anything Drupal is fair game -- a cool module or theme you recently tried out... a nifty thing you learned about Drupal 8... a quick demo of a site you just launched... you get the idea!

OSCON ticket for sale

I'm selling an OSCON bronze pass - I recently won it at a raffle event and I'm going to be traveling and can't use it myself.

I'm selling the pass for $1000 (reg. price $1695). Contact me at ELiedel@aol.com - I can register you directly so I don't need to have OSCON transfer the ticket (and it's too late for that anyway).

Thanks.

Start: 
2015-07-16 18:00 - 20:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 
Event type:

Last month we canceled and the month before that Austin Prohl stepped down as organizer of this meetup. Then Frank Anderson volunteered. This month we will be going over Automated Front-end Regression Testing.

Automated Front-end Regression Testing is the process of taking a screenshot of the way the site looks on production and then taking a screenshot of the way the site looks on test and then comparing the two. Automated Front-end regression testing adds this process to your CI. We will be looking at Wraith, phantomjs and casper.
