No need to RSVP, the meetings are open to all.
This month's Portland Drupal User Group meeting will be at Metal Toad on Wednesday, May 11 starting at 6pm with social time, pizza, and beverages.
Our speaker this month is Dan Muzyka, a senior developer at Phase2. He's going to talk about lessons he's learned porting the ajax_comments module to Drupal 8. So if you're a developer, you will not want to miss this talk. Also for others, this will be a good talk to better understand the process and problems that are inherent in the porting process.
Even though DrupalCon is happening that week, the meetup is still happening!Read more

Demos can cover such things as:
LinuxFest Northwest 2016 is coming up in April, and there will be two talks on Drupal there:
It'd be great to also get a Drupal booth in the Expo hall. I'm reaching out to the DA to see if we can get some support with signage, etc.

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.Read more
Where do you suggest we have Brewpal next week?
- 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?Read more
