The Santa Cruz Drupal User's Group is looking to connect Drupal users in and around Santa Cruz, California.
We have a budding tech community in Santa Cruz. One factor in our tech growth is the use of Drupal at several local web shops, start-ups, and organizations. Drupal use at UC Santa Cruz is also growing and it's time we all got together to share knowledge and learn from each other.
We (almost always) meet on the first Tuesday of each month, at 7:00pm. Meetings are free and held at NextSpace at 101 Cooper Street in downtown Santa Cruz. All are welcome. Ring the buzzer to get let into the building.
Note - If the meeting day falls on a holiday or during the winter holidays (e.g. January), then we will probably reschedule the meeting.

I'd like to direct everyone's attention to Cameron Eagan's post today. Cameron was one of our speakers last month on Drupal 8. This is an important and brave piece of writing that echoes the concerns that some of us have expressed (privately) about Drupal 8.
Hmm, maybe it's just me and I missed the notification, but you can already register and sign up now for the Parties, Summits and Trainings at BADCamp. Some of the Trainings are already filled. I noticed that several of our regulars are not yet registered, so though that maybe I wasn't the only one that missed the starting gun.
Go to http://2013.badcamp.net and get signed up!
Wanted to let all of you here know that Darren (our current sponsor to NextSpace), yesterday underwent a triple bypass surgery. Currently he is recovering over the next couple of days in ICU. He might be sent home in a week or so.
He and his wife are reading the emails of support. Feel free to send loves and hugs his way.
Since he is our sponsor for our meetings at NS, I am not sure what this might mean for our meeting next week. I know he also sponsored a few other local meetup groups.Read more

We got a ton of responses and some great candidates so we are closing this for now. Contact us in 3 months, if you are still interested in working with us and we can meet at BADCamp
Looking for some freelancer Drupal help (developers and themers) for a couple+ months. Please contact me via drupal.org (https://drupal.org/user/8389) or hook42.com.
We are interested in:
* US freelancers or small web shops only
* Must have Drupal experience (ideally, Drupal 7)
Tomorrow night - Tuesday August 6th - Cameron Eagans will be presenting the State of Drupal 8. Come down and hang out with the Santa Cruz Drupalers and friends :)
The August meeting with be Tuesday August 6th. Topics? Presenters? Leave a comment :)
We are open to relevant non-Drupal topics too. Julia mentioned talking about Compass sprites.
If no one has anything, I could go over the Privatemsg module. It uses entities in D7 and has a patch for Views integration.Read more
Do we have an NSer who can host us for this Tuesday. I heard a rumor that we might be losing our official NS host (currently Murias). Darren - can you host us?
Maybe we need to discuss the possibility of moving the meeting to another venue... I would prefer to keep it where it is because that is familiar but... always having to make sure there is a NSer there does cause some uncertainty. Anyone have ideas of other places we could do this?Read more
Hello SC Drupal group members,
I should have known better than to try and work with Windows, but hopefully there is a simple answer...
I have a fresh Drupal 7 Commerce Kickstart Install on a Windows 2008 Server running IIS 7. I ran into a permissions problem during installation (sites/all/files/ not writable), but was able to changed them to get the install to work.
However, now the install is completed and the site is up, I can't upload images.
Anyone have any tips for setting Windows permissions correctly for the files directory?
Thanks in advance!
Hi fellow group members.
I have a referral partner that normally passes Drupal work to me, but today he presented a couple of odd requests, so I thought I'd reach out to the group and see if anyone's interested in taking some non-Drupal work on.
I am thinking about moving into California(from Europe) and I am curious about which California based companies are the best ones to work for? I'm more interested in full service advertising afencies rather than just companies specialized on websites(pure Drupal shops). Also I'm more interested in companies with more than 50 employees(I've worked for small companies and want a change of environment).
Which companies would you recommend?Read more

Let's chat about what happened at DrupalCon Portland. If you didn't make it there, feel free to watch some sessions in the meantime:
If anyone has any ideas for our July DUG, leave a comment.
Hi! I have an extra DrupalCon ticket since one of our developers can't attend the conference as planned. Let me know if you or someone you know is still looking for a ticket and I'll hook you UP!
I go to Drupal camps because I know that if I learn one new thing or meet one cool person who's willing to share their experiences with me, then it was a successful use of my time. Whatever I learn doesn't even have to be Drupal related, the point is I'm a wiser person for having immersed myself into the community. I organize Drupal camps because I want others to have that same opportunity, and it's rewarding for me to see people get together and share their brilliant ideas and work.
So, why do you go to Drupal Camps (big, small, local, international)?Read more
I have some work that needs to be done around the Media Browser and I could either use some assistance, or direction from others experience on the site I am working on. I am happy to hire out the work if you know what you are doing and get it kicked back out quickly.
The website adds content through a media browser that can search through directories as configured and then place them inline where needed. This media already exists and just needs to be grabbed and shown in the browser.
If you have ideas, please share.Read more
Does anyone have experience creating new product types, products, line items, content types for commerce so that one can add a product?
I can use the commerce kickstart, but I need to implement commerce via module install on an existing site. I might even be able to use you for a short while on the project for some of the heavier pieces or to jump start the site.
Hey... slight reminder that I won't be at the meeting tonight. The room is booked under my name at NS, and putting the word out there to ensure that there will be another NextSpacer that can let people into the room tonight.
