Portland (Oregon)

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:

2. The Drupal Front End Meetup happens every third Thursday of the month. This group is focused on the theming and design aspects of Drupal development. Come nerd out with us over CSS, Javascript, theme functions and other interesting front-end tools. This meetup is held at the Clarity Innovation offices at 1001 SE Water Avenue, Suite 400.

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.

We're also on IRC in #drupal-pdx on freenode.net


JetBrains sponsors our meetup by raffling away 1 free PhpStorm license every meetup (2nd Wednesday).

2015-07-16 18:00 - 20:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 
Event type:

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.

May Frontend Meetup -- Canceled -- seeking new Leader

Start: 
2015-05-21 18:00 - 19:30 UTC
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

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.

Informal gathering at Life of Riley (in lieu of a formal May presentation)

Start: 
2015-05-13 18:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Hello everybody!

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!

May Drupal PDX Meetup Cancelled because DrupalCon

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!
