Santa Cruz

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 7pm. 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 might reschedule or cancel the meeting but there will be a discussion or event here for it.

Silicon Valley Drupal User Group Meetup Tomorrow: Automating the Migration Process

Tomorrow evening at 7:00 PM, myself and Heron Heron Ordoñez of Nvidia will be presenting our notes on how we were able to achieve a complex Drupal 6 to 7 migration with roughly two minutes of website downtime.

We'll be covering the migration from both a Drupal standpoint, and what was needed on the server side to achieve this near 100% automation. The Drupal 7 site architecture was built from scratch during the migration process using a script and features/custom modules. We'll also be discussing how to use multithreading with Drupal.

Looking for Drupal scaling & memcache expertise

productOps is looking for some help on a large-scale Drupal app we're managing. We're seeing massive DB connection spikes periodically, coincident with a lot of memcache evictions and a slowdown in memcache performance, which ultimately leads to sporadic outages that require human intervention to back off connections to the Database.

If you know someone with deep experience with memcache or issues related to scaling Drupal, I'd appreciate a referral. Thanks!

VM search is on

Hi drupal peeps,
So I've been using Parallels for my Microsoft browser testing for a number of years now. It is pretty easy to set up multiple machines depending on what OS version you need to see, but using it is almost intolerably slow.
Also, they are always telling me to upgrade, even though I just did, and there's a limit to the number of "fifty-dollarses" that I want to give over to software that frustrates me.

    August 2015 Santa Cruz Drupal User Group Meeting - Nextspace 7pm to 9pm (Tuesday August 4, 2015)

    Organizers: 
    Event type: 
    User group meeting

    The next SCDUG will be Tuesday August 4th at 7pm* at Nextspace.

    1) *Given that most everyone wanted to leave by 8:30pm in the July meeting, we might want to consider if we should shift the time from 7pm-9pm to 6:30pm to 8:30pm or even 6pm to 8pm (or earlier?). Since most people who attend are locals, then this change might be welcome. For those who come from over-the-hill, I imagine an earlier time would be hard. I think we should give preference to the locals though and particularly the "regulars". So if you come to SCDUG more often than not, please leave a comment with:
