Welcome to the Portland, Oregon Drupal Users Group. We have (at least) three official meetups every month.
1. Meetings take place every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6pm. Upcoming meeting dates and locations are:
- Oct 14 - ThinkShout (433 NW 4th Ave. Ste 100)
- Nov 11 - MetalToad (522 SW 5th Ave. Ste 400)
- Dec 9 - Phase2 (514 NW 11th Ave. Ste 203
3. Brewpal takes place on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 5pm at a rotating location around Portland. This month (September 22nd), will be in at the NW Lucky Lab (1945 NW Quimby). 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.
Join us next Wednesday, April 8th for a diverse round of Lightning Talks. This meetup is hosted at the Metal Toad offices downtown at 522 SW 5th Ave Suite 400. Come at 6pm, eat some pizza, socialize, and we'll get the talks started around 6:30.
A lightning talk is the "quick and dirty" presentation of a concept in 5 minutes or less. It gets right to the point and holds no punches! If you feel so inclined, talk about anything Drupal related -- development, your toolbox, management, or about a project you were involved with -- no holds barred. Just keep it to 5 minutes.Read more

Join us for the March edition of Brewpal! On the fourth Tuesday of each month, we get together to work on projects, ask questions of our fellow Drupalers and have a pint.
I'm so excited that we are continuing to branch out into the inner neighborhoods of Portland! This month we'll be meeting in NE Portland at StormBreaker Brewing (832 N Beech St).
These meetups are for ALL levels of Drupal users. Come with your laptop, a project to work on and some questions. We'll learn a bit from each other and get some work done while having a beer!

Come attend Brewpal tonight!
It's an informal gathering where we get together with our laptops and work together on whatever we want.
We're breaking with tradition (slightly) and meeting at the South East Lucky Lab location (915 SE Hawthorne).
Hope to see you there!
Hey guys, I was cleaning out my desk and came across a giant cardboard box, long forgotten from DrupalCon Portland, filled with Drupal t-shirts and posters from Geek Royale (@mortendk's shop).
I'll bring them to Brewpal this Tuesday, for anyone to take. There are tons and tons of posters, so feel free to grab some for your office, kids, friends, dogs, whatever.
Does anyone have experience using the Migrate module or Feeds module to migrate CCK file fields from a Drupal 6 site to a Drupal 7 site?
We currently use the Feeds module to partially handle this file transfer requirement, but Feeds does not natively handle a file's Title field. We also use the Migrate module to pull in most other node data from D6 to D7, but Migrate does not seem to handle CCK file fields out of the box.Read more
We are looking for any training that might be available in the Portland area. We are fairly new to Drupal (installed it and played with it a bit) and would like some live training where discussions of scenarios and implementation options would be welcome. Training would ideally need to be either on-site, or at least local here in the PDX region. This is a corporate environment, so it would not be a viable option to enroll in a long-term course (what I have seen described by Epicodus). We are looking for about a week of training for 2 people (maybe 3) with follow-up options available.
After lots of discussion, both online here and in person at various meetups, I've decided to branch the PDX DUG out every once in awhile and allow shops around town to offer us their offices to host a meetup.
This month ThinkShout has generously offered not only to host the meetup at their offices, but will also be sponsoring the food and refreshments. Thanks ThinkShout!
For this month's topic, Sheldon Kreger will be talking about Amazon's Elastic Beanstalk service:Read more
Hi all -
I wanted to share an awesome Drupal training program. I visited the Epicodus shop a couple of weeks ago and they have a fantastic program. I know that you are not the target audience for their class, but you probably know someone who should attend. Best part - internships and job support when the class is over. I definitely want them to see Drupal as a positive new market!
Epicodus is launching what may be the first full-timeRead more
In the previous thread about the BrewPal venue, a few of us suggested an interest in the PDX Drupal Users Group considering a rotating venue for the Meet-up. I'm actually unclear on the history of how this venue has been selected. Regardless, OpenSourcery, and now Phase 2, have been very generous in opening their space to the community.
There would be a number of benefits to a rotating venue:
- The community gets to experience and share creative ideas about how offices/floor plans are setup to support effective teams.
- Job seekers get to experience the culture of various shops.
--Thursday, February 26 is Training: 6+ amazing classes to up your Drupal game
—Friday, February 27 is Day 1 of Camp: $10 for both days OR $10 at the door each day

We're almost through the first month of the year, but don't forget about Brewpal next Tuesday!
It's an informal gathering where we get together with our laptops and work together on whatever we want. Spice it up with some good food, tasty beverages and great conversation. In the past we met at Lucky Lab, but this month Metal Toad has invited the group to their new offices at 522 SW 5th Ave Suite 400.
So come on downtown next Tuesday at 5 (or when you can make it)!
