Welcome to the Portland, Oregon Drupal Users Group. We have (at least) three official meetups every month.
Meetings take place every 2nd Wednesday of the month at 6pm. This month (April 8th) the meetup will be held at the MetalToad offices at 522 SW 5th Ave Suite 400.
Brewpal takes place on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 5pm at a rotating location around Portland. This month (May 26), will be in SE Portland at the Green Dragon at 928 SE 9th Avenue. 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.
JetBrains sponsors our meetup by raffling away 1 free PhpStorm license every meetup (2nd Wednesday).
Hop on into Metal Toad's new space for Board Game Night! We're looking forward to gaming with you!
Pizza and beer will be provided so contact danlinn for RSVP and pizza preference.

Come hungry, thirsty, and prepared for victory!
It's the last Portland Drupal User Group meeting of 2014 and that means it's time again for DrupalGames.
As usual, we'll meet at 6pm in the Phase2 offices at 514 NW 11th, Suite 203 (map). Following a bit of socializing and pizza (thanks to our sponsors OMBU), we'll break into teams and compete
to the death for fun and fabulous prizes. Remember to bring your laptop and creative holiday spirit.
Following the meetup we'll head to a nearby pub for drinks and more socializing.
This is just a reminder that this month (December) there will be no Drupal Frontend meetup. I will be out of town on the 18th and a quick poll at the last FEDUG showed near unanimous support for just skipping the month and picking back up in January.
That being said, January will be an exciting month! Dan Muzyka and Courtney Koppenhaver have prepared a talk about theming in Drupal 8 with Twig!Read more
So, over the past few years I've noticed a notable scarcity of Drupal developers. Demand for talented individuals is high, supply is low. I remember going to a PDX DUG a few years back and there were two job openings spoken for every person attending... and everyone attending was employed!
The pro's of this seem to be quite notable for us as developers, no one made anything close to this when I first got into this all back in D5! However Is this scarcity creating a turnoff for companies/organizations considering Drupal?Read more

For years now, frontend developers have ranted and whined about Drupal's divitis, a disease that's been greatly eradicated in Drupal 8 with the introduction of smarter templates and the use of Twig.Read more
Devsigner is happening again this next year! We had a successful kick-off meeting last Wednesday and some amazing people have stepped up to take on some central roles.
We are looking to fill a few more spots on our organizing team. Here's what we still need:
Website content creator - Create static and occasional news content for the website. You should be a good writer and able to convey our purpose and tone well.Read more
Good Morning Everyone!
I had a great time at the meet up last night and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Rachel and I've been a freelance content administrator for several years now; working with several companies such as Genuine Interactive, ISITE Design, and New Group on various content migration, front end development and social media tasks. The majority of the site i've worked on are in Drupal, with a few in WordPress and SiteCore (I drastically prefer Drupal, for obvious reasons.)Read more
Ok. It's second Wednesday soon, so join us for #PDXDUG. This month we're talking Search API best practices with Greg Boggs; we might even get to hear how Elasticsearch works into the fiber.
We'll have pizza at 6pm, sponsored by ThinkShout, and talks start around 6:30. Post meetup is probably a Lowbrau thing. Come enjoy.
It's time to start getting the second edition of Devsigner off the ground! If you're interested in helping organize, please comment here or get in touch with me (Mindewen) directly.
I'd like to have an initial planning meeting soon (next couple of weeks?), so once I have your name I'll send you a Doodle poll.
There will be opportunities ranging from team lead to floating helper, and any level of investment is welcome.Read more
The Pacific NW Drupal Summit is happening this weekend, Oct 17-19 (Fri-Sun) at the University Place Hotel in Portland, Oregon.
We need your friendly faces at the registration tables, the party, and as a runner to help our coordinators.
Are you a student? Can't afford a registration but would still like to help out and be at the Summit! We need you!
Please get in touch with us today at http://2014.pnwdrupalsummit.org/ -- Use the volunteer sign-up form in the sidebar.
Thanks in advance!
I will be presenting the first version of the content recommendation system I built for software.intel.com, a large Drupal 7 site.
The bulk of the presentation will be about content recommendation systems and our specific implementation. The Drupal portion of the project is a small piece of the puzzle (loading a JSON file from Amazon S3 via AJAX in a block).
I could also present this at the DUG if there is interest.

Join us for second-wednesday #PDXDUG. For those who missed it, we've moved to Phase2's new Portland office at 514 NW 11th Ave, Suite #203. There is some on-street parking nearby, and the office is easily accessed by transit or bike (bike racks outside).Read more
Join us for what could be the final fair-weathered Brewpal of the season. We'll be meeting at Lucky Lab on NW 19th & Quimby to work on projects, ask questions, get answers, and socialize with other Drupalers from 5pm til whenever. See you there!
