3. Brewpal takes place on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 5pm at a rotating location around Portland. 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.
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.Read more
I've talked with several people over the last few months about Sharon Ellison's work. Donna Benjamin and I have conspired to get Sharon to offer a workshop on Friday, July 17.
This workshop is for you if you've ever:
- played and replayed a conversation in your head and wished you could do it differently
- lain awake at night planning your response to a particularly difficult issue or post
- wished you could do a better job of saying no
The first ten to sign up with the coupon code GDO10 will pay just $299

O'Reilly's OSCON is returning to Portland July 21-23 and the Drupal Association will once again have a booth in the OSCON expo hall. We'd love to have Portland Drupalers at the booth to share the joy of Drupal with conference attendees and help them with their Drupal issues.Read more
On Thursday evening, Devsigner presenter Kristen Gallagher will be giving a special workshop for fellow Devsigner presenters -- and it's open to the public.
If you're new to speaking -- or just want to brush up on your skills -- please join us!
Join us for the June 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.
As you may know, this year we've been rotating the venue of the Brewpal meetup. The criteria includes free wi-fi, a large public space that's family friendly, bar service (rather than table service), all while being close-in and easy to get to by public transit. This month (June 23rd), Brewpal will take place at Ecliptic Brewing (825 N Cook St).Read more
Join us next Wednesday, June 10th for a few presentations talking about a few Basics in the Drupal world that might not be so basic to many.
Michael Prasuhn (https://www.drupal.org/u/mikey_p) will talk for a bit about how to "vet" a module. There are literally thousands of modules out there, so how is one to determine if it's the right one for your project? Find out!Read more

Since there won't be a frontend meetup tonight, here's something that might interest you: Today is Global Accessibility Awareness Day, with events happening worldwide.
While there isn't an event in Portland, there is a free, online 24-hour set of presentations called Inclusive Design 24, focusing on the intersection of web design/frontend and accessibility.Read more
I am canceling the frontend meetup again this month and stepping down as the leader of this meetup. I simply do not have the bandwidth to continue leading this group.
It would be great to keep it running, because I think it's been an asset to our community.
If one of you wonderful people wants to step in, awesome, let's keep on doing cool stuff. If not, we'll suspend the meetups for the time being.
Join us for the May 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.
As you may know, this year we've been rotating the venue of the Brewpal meetup. The criteria includes free wi-fi, a large public space that's family friendly, bar service (rather than table service), all while being close-in and easy to get to by public transit. This month let's try out a brewpub in SE Portland called The Green Dragon (928 SE 9th Avenue).Read more
Sorry for the short notice... there is some interest in a meetup even though DrupalCon is happening this week and quite a few of us are missing the meetup because of it. So let's get together for an informal gathering to talk about everything Drupal!
Let's meet up at the Life of Riley at 6pm at 300 NW 10th, either upstairs or downstairs depending on the crowd. I believe this is a 21 and over establishment. You'll recognize us by how many laptops are open (wi-fi is free).
Show up at The Life of Riley beginning around 6. I hope to see you there!
There is an opportunity for Drupal Developer, please see the link below.
I'm a diehard LA Dodgers fan, and it turns out the Dodgers are playing at home during Drupalcon, so I'm wondering if there is anybody that would like to go to a game with me that week. Here's the schedule for that week:
- Mon, 5/11 - 7:10 PM vs Miami
- Tues, 5/12 - 7:10 PM vs Miami
- Wed, 5/13 - 4:50 PM vs Miami
- Thurs 5/14 - 7:10 vs Colorado
We had limited response to the idea of a meetup during the week of DrupalCon, so I'm canceling the May meetup. (It would have been May 13th.) We'll see you at the May Brewpal though!
Have fun at DrupalCon, those of you lucky enough to attend! We'll recap on some of the things you learn there when we get back together in June, so take notes!
Join us for the April 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.
As you may know, this year we've been rotating the venue of the Brewpal meetup. The criteria includes free wi-fi, a large public space that's family friendly, bar service (rather than table service), all while being close-in and easy to get to by public transit. This month we're bringing it back to the original location at the Lucky Lab in NW Portland. (1945 NW Quimby St).Read more
