Presentations will start at about 6:30pm. We have two great presentations:

Amber Himes Matz, a trainer for Drupalize.me, will be walking us through building responsive Images in Drupal 8.

"I'll demonstrate how to use the Responsive Images module in Drupal 8 to create responsive image styles. I'll also cover some basic concepts of breakpoints and media queries and how to create and use a breakpoints YAML file in Drupal 8."

Martin Rio, the Principal at Ombu, is going to walk us through Getting started with Docker for Development.

"My presentation will make the case for why Docker makes a sweet development environment, and show how easy it is to get started. We'll start from the very basics of Docker and work up to a development environment for a Drupal site with MySQL. This will be a live demo (

PNWDS early planning announcement

Amber Himes Matz's picture

I'll be making an announcement about planning being underway for the 2018 Pacific NW Drupal Summit in Portland. I'll also be available before and after the user group if you have any questions about joining the planning committee, especially to help out with the early planning tasks.

The description for my presentation broke at the emoji. Sorry about that. Here's the full version:

My presentation will make the case for why Docker makes a sweet development environment, and show how easy it is to get started. We'll start from the very basics of Docker and work up to a development environment for a Drupal site with MySQL. This will be a live demo (face screaming in fear emoji) so I'll be going back & forth between slides and the command line.

If you'd like would like to follow along on the command line, please take a moment to do the following ahead of time to spare our friends at Metal Toad from some bandwidth:

Download Docker for Mac:
https://download.docker.com/mac/stable/Docker.dmg

Pull down a few images:

docker image pull nginx 
docker image pull mysql:5.7
docker image pull php:5.6-apache
docker image pull php:7.0-apache
docker image pull drupal:8.2-apache

This should be fun!

Thanks, For some reason on

Thanks,

For some reason on docker for linux 1.12.5 it is just docker pull instead of docker image pull. Got em all downloaded!

Looks like Ubuntu users can

Looks like Ubuntu users can do a apt-get install docker-ce (community edition) and it will install Docker 17+ now (quite a big jump in versions) and that version has docker image * commands such as pull.

Website recommendations from last night

Elijah Lynn's picture

There were a bunch of website recommendations last night. Some were quite interesting. Please post them here.

outweb.io

Mine was outweb.io which is a progressive web app store and it is also a progressive web app. This is the future of app stores. No more walled app gardens, just many different types of distributed app stores. Since all apps of the future will just be links all app stores will just be a nice, curated list of links with a UX/Presentation layer on top.

That's awesome!

Articles -- both their own and shared from other sources -- about the intersection of tech and social justice.

They have a weekly newsletter roundup, which is usually how I engage with them.
