No Front End meetup this month (January)

Hello, sad to announce that there will be no front-end Drupal meetup this month. I was unable to get a speaker and my wife just had a baby so I will not be able to fill in. So I am afraid I must cancel.

We will be having one next month, I am working out the details, but save the date: February 18th, the Front-End meetups will be back.

Suggestions for Brewpal location next week?

Where do you suggest we have Brewpal next week?

Criteria:
- Free, decent wifi
- Group friendly and establishment is ok with people hanging out for a long time and coming and going
- Pay at the bar (preferred)
- Central-ish Portland location

One place that fits this criteria is the Lucky Lab (NW 21st & Quimby), so we'll default there if there are no other viable suggestions.

Other suggestions?

December DUG: Integrating Drupal with a Distributed Architecture

Start: 
2015-12-09 18:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Join us Wednesday December 9th for the December user group at the offices of Phase2.

Sheldon Kreger shares a recent project integrating a large Drupal 7 site with external enterprise resources. Using RabbitMQ, Node.js, and a custom Drupal module leveraging php-amqplib, Sheldon and his team successfully refactored the way Drupal shares data with other software services. This new architecture paves the path forward for building new features in a distributed environment, while data is (a)synchronized in near-real time, and in a non-blocking manner.
