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 (August 12th) the meetup will be held at the Metal Toad 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 (August 25th), will be in at the Teote Areperia at 1615 SE 12th. 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).
Does anyone have experience using the Migrate module or Feeds module to migrate CCK file fields from a Drupal 6 site to a Drupal 7 site?
We currently use the Feeds module to partially handle this file transfer requirement, but Feeds does not natively handle a file's Title field. We also use the Migrate module to pull in most other node data from D6 to D7, but Migrate does not seem to handle CCK file fields out of the box.Read more
We are looking for any training that might be available in the Portland area. We are fairly new to Drupal (installed it and played with it a bit) and would like some live training where discussions of scenarios and implementation options would be welcome. Training would ideally need to be either on-site, or at least local here in the PDX region. This is a corporate environment, so it would not be a viable option to enroll in a long-term course (what I have seen described by Epicodus). We are looking for about a week of training for 2 people (maybe 3) with follow-up options available.
After lots of discussion, both online here and in person at various meetups, I've decided to branch the PDX DUG out every once in awhile and allow shops around town to offer us their offices to host a meetup.
This month ThinkShout has generously offered not only to host the meetup at their offices, but will also be sponsoring the food and refreshments. Thanks ThinkShout!
For this month's topic, Sheldon Kreger will be talking about Amazon's Elastic Beanstalk service:Read more
Hi all -
I wanted to share an awesome Drupal training program. I visited the Epicodus shop a couple of weeks ago and they have a fantastic program. I know that you are not the target audience for their class, but you probably know someone who should attend. Best part - internships and job support when the class is over. I definitely want them to see Drupal as a positive new market!
Epicodus is launching what may be the first full-timeRead more
In the previous thread about the BrewPal venue, a few of us suggested an interest in the PDX Drupal Users Group considering a rotating venue for the Meet-up. I'm actually unclear on the history of how this venue has been selected. Regardless, OpenSourcery, and now Phase 2, have been very generous in opening their space to the community.
There would be a number of benefits to a rotating venue:
- The community gets to experience and share creative ideas about how offices/floor plans are setup to support effective teams.
- Job seekers get to experience the culture of various shops.

We're almost through the first month of the year, but don't forget about Brewpal next Tuesday!
It's an informal gathering where we get together with our laptops and work together on whatever we want. Spice it up with some good food, tasty beverages and great conversation. In the past we met at Lucky Lab, but this month Metal Toad has invited the group to their new offices at 522 SW 5th Ave Suite 400.
So come on downtown next Tuesday at 5 (or when you can make it)!
If you (or somebody you know) is interested in becoming a developer and learning Drupal, drop me a line! Also check out epicodus.com.
If you are interested in hiring junior Drupal developers, and/or participating in our internship program, email me as well.

The Meyer Memorial Trust would like to invite Drupal shops to submit an RFP for our website redesign project.
Meyer Memorial Trust is a private, nonprofit, charitable foundation located in Portland, Oregon, established by the estate of Fred G. Meyer. MMT awards grants to nonprofit organizations serving Oregon and Clark County, Washington.
We are seeking expert guidance to help design, re-brand and implement a website with high functionality, approachable style and content that speaks directly to our audience of grantees, philanthropic partners, and both internal and external stakeholders.Read more
Apparently I'm still the owner of this group (beyond just an admin) and would like to hand that off to jessehs. According to the roughly equivalent process here https://www.drupal.org/node/1949706, I need to make a post and wait two weeks for feedback. Then I'll submit for ownership handoff to jessehs.
The second Wednesday falls on the 14th this month -- one week from now.
Come start off the new year with a great topic: Migrate in Drupal 8! This month Keith Dechant at Metal Toad is presenting, focusing mostly on data migration, but also touching upon migrating your custom module.
We'll have pizza at 6pm, sponsored by Drupalize.Me, and talks start around 6:30. Post meetup, we'll find a nearby pub for more socializing. Come enjoy.
The meetup takes place at Phase2 offices at 514 NW 11th, Suite 203.
There will be a Portland sprint as part of the Drupal Global Sprint hosted by Phase 2. Discussions here: https://groups.drupal.org/node/452523
If you are interested in sprinting on Sunday, do you plan to attend at 9? Last year, Sunday morning was very slow and the person who's in charge of the space wants to know when he needs to be there.
Not sure if anyone else is working on stuff on this Saturday, but I've got some work to catch up and will be at SE Grind (http://www.yelp.com/biz/southeast-grind-portland) around 11:30 or so to 3pm enjoying a light meal, some good iced chai, and slaying some module development.
I miss how much the community used to go out of it's way for beginners, so if anyone working on their own thing would like some help, feel free to stop by and join up! I love to help, and I've got a almost as many years experience teaching as I do in Drupal itself... so come join me :)Read more
There's a global Drupal sprint Jan. 17-18, 2015. For some of the past global sprints there have been events here in Portland.
I can help support one happening, but as I'm a freelancer I don't have a space to donate. Would any of the local shops be interested in hosting one or both days? Or if you don't have a big enough space, sponsor coffee or snacks?
I usually try to contribute a bit during the global sprints, so my selfish motive here is getting to do it around other people :)
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.
