Backend Talent Needed ASAP

Hi Oly/Seattle and Chicago Drupal folks. I am posting this in the hopes that someone local has a bit of time and the skill to assist us.

We have a project for a major NFL fan site that has a very tight timeline and we could really use another pair of hands on the backend API integration pieces.

We have a lead developer and would very much like to add another to supplement and meet the deadline of July 24.

Please email cmcgrath@celebratedrupal.com to discuss rate and availability. Thanks!

Summer Drupal Work

Hello Drupal Oly folks! We are getting really busy and wondered if there were any junior resources out there, that know CSS (maybe some SASS) and basic Drupal site building and had some time to offer this summer. From there who knows it could grow into more we are a growing organization.

We are a virtual workplace but could meet regularly and or have you work from our location a few days.

Pay would be based on experience and the job would be a contract role. Please email your resume and or get in touch with bmcgrath@celebratedrupal.com

May Meeting

Hi Oly Drupalites. Hope all that were fortunate enough to attend had a great Drupal Con Los Angeles! I wanted to get a discussion going for the May meeting. I (Chris) will not be able to attend as I will be in Chicago. However Beth will be there and we just wanted to see what everyone thought would be the most valuable topics to discuss?

I know Intro to Drupal was discussed,
Enterprise Management

What sounds good?

Difficulty Finding Folks with Drupal Experience

I'm just curious if anybody has any observations to share regarding difficulty in finding people with Drupal experience. We've had a position that's been hard to fill (still open) even looking for more generic web developer candidates. This might just be a sign of the state falling behind the salary curve but I'm thinking that adding Drupal specific requirements might just make that worse.

As an aside, we may have an opportunity for a full or part-time project position for someone with Drupal site building experience if any of you know of someone in the Olympia area that might be interested.

March Meet Date / Time

Hi Everyone, Beth and I wanted to follow up to James' very nice post to the CIO list. The Attorney General here in WA has just launched a new Drupal site and it is being chatted about on the State webmaster listserv. We would like to promote the March User Group meeting.

Did we want to keep our 3pm Friday time? Or does the group feel a PM time is better?
I think we agree that we wanted to keep it to a place that we had a projector such as Evergreen but if that is out of the way for others please speak up.

Organizer Volunteer

Hi Oly Drupalites! I would like to offer to become the organizer of our local user group and begin to get our monthly meetups in the area going. I have emailed Ellen yesterday and have not heard back yet I assume that will happen. Nonetheless has not been too much activity locally and I would very much like to change that and begin fostering Drupal more in our local colleges and within area potential client users (state gov).

Please let me know if anyone has insight as to how to become an organizer of this group.

Thanks in advance!
