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 (October 27th), will be in at Bunk Bar Water (1028 SE Water Ave). 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 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
Metro has just released RFP 2967 On call web professional services.
Three (3) service categories are presented for proposals: Drupal development, Drupal front end design and user experience, and analytics and user testing.
This RFP is now posted on ORPIN (Oregon Procurement Information Network). To view contracting opportunities, your firm must be registered with ORPIN. Please see https://jobs.drupal.org/metro/job/9517 for how to register on ORPIN and submit a proposal.
The Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition has issued the attached RFP to redevelop a custom-built CMS-driven website and add CRM functionality to the back end. This is more complicated than the average non-profit site due to a database and interface through which different kinds of users contribute and retrieve geographically specific observations of plants, animals, etc. More detail and contact information are available in the RFP. Please follow up with questions (and probably schedule an initial phone call soon) if you're interested.
If you haven't heard yet, there's a great conference coming up aimed at advancing the careers of women in tech.

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

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.
