3. Brewpal takes place on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 5pm at the Lucky Lab in NW Portland (1945 NW Quimby St, Portland, OR 97209). 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).

Moving the Front-End/Contribute meetup date

It seems to me like the third week of the month is always the busiest for me and once again I would likely need to cancel the Front-End/Contribute meetup tonight.

Instead I am going to move it. Starting next month, the Front-End/Contribute meetups will be on the 1st Thursday of the month.

HELP!!

New to the group and Drupal, having an issue and haven't found anywhere else that can help with a solution. I have asked on 'drupal.stackexchange.com' but nothing.

If this is the wrong place to ask, forgive me and delete.

I have a table {cases} which has in part, upload_id, case_id and case_name-- etc etc.
The field upload_id has been serialized.
When a user goes to a form and uploads a file, if it is a new case, meaning case_name is NOT present then get max(case_id) add one and save to database.
