Drupal working Morning/afternoon. Come join me if you want any Drupal help or just company :)

Hey everyone!

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 :)

Portland global sprint weekend Jan. 17-18?

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 :)

Drupal frontend meetup - December 2014 - "Canceled"

Start: 
2014-12-18 18:00 - 19:30 UTC
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Hey Portlanders,

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!

Scarcity of Drupal Developers: A double edged sword?

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?

Organizers: 
Event type:

The New Girl

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.)

Content Recommendation System in Drupal

Start: 
2014-10-15 18:00 - 19:30 America/Vancouver
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Related event (ie. not Drupal specific)

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.
