New Relic is hosting a series of presentations featuring notable internet speakers. The latest features Jessica McKellar speaking about how the internet works. Although Jessica is director for the Python Software Foundation, her presentation should be interesting to anyone who works or uses the internet.
If you're interested in attending, hit the Eventbrite and RSVP: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/futuretalk-with-jessica-mckellar-tickets-948...
Also, pythons, like the internet are just a series of tubes… organic, rodent constricting and eating tubes.
Thanksgiving is on Thursday, which means, you probably don't expect to get much work done on Wednesday. So you might as well start the festivities early and join all of your Drupal friends for drinks on Tuesday at 5pm!
DevMunch is back!
Friday, November 22, 2013 at 1pm PST via Google Plus Hangout
Are you sick of waiting around for drush to clear caches?
In this DevMunch Google Hangout, I will walk through how to install Terminal Notifier using Homebrew, set up a shell alias that will tell Drush to clear all caches, and then display a system notification when caches have been cleared.
This lesson is especially suitable for Mac users and Drupal users of any experience level.Read more

The details are still emerging, but I am reaching out to my local Drupal community for help with the following project.
The current civil war in Syria has now left countless women without a breadwinner. Ones that are able to leave the country end up in refugee camps where they remain vulnerable. The ones that stay have no means, and without infrastructure in place, they have no ability to provide for themselves or their children.
Our client is looking for an experienced Drupal developer to join their web team to support our growing Drupal infrastructure. We need someone with experience creating custom modules and working with stakeholders to define functionality. Further, you’ll work closely with their Ops team to handle proactive maintenance, including applying security patches and module upgrades.Read more

Last month's Drupal theming doubleheader was a hit, so we're going to do another 7/8 doubleheader! This month we're covering custom modules in D7 and D8!
But first we'll take care of a little Drupal 6 business. Drupal 6 was really awesome for its time, but with Drupal 8 on the horizon, it means 6 support is going away. Melissa is going to give a quick lightning talk about IMP and how you can get involved.Read more
I'm starting work at a company near 222 NW 5th Ave in a week and I traditionally drive to work. I live in SW Portland near Mall 205 and wondered if anyone could give me some recommendations on routes and transit stops to use to get between my place of employment and home.
Do you have any rules I should follow from a social/personal level and areas to avoid?
What do you usually spend a week/month on mass transit and do you use the max and or bus system?
Developer specific sprint to focus on core and contrib. The idea is to do this either weekly or bi-weekly depending on interest.
For the next few months it would be great to focus on D8. For some this is an opportunity to keep on working on core while others will find a way to learn what's new and improved in D8.

This month I think we'll spend some time reviewing the latest trends in Drupal frontend, going over some of the topics covered at DrupalCon Prague / PNWDS / BADCamp, and discussing what we want our focuses to be over the next few months. I also want to pick your brains about a likely conference-y event of our own here next year.
You might want to bring your laptop, and definitely bring topics you want to discuss and lingering questions you've always had about Drupal theming. If you attended one of the above-mentioned Drupal events, maybe come ready to share some of your highlights.Read more
