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.

Help needed

I've just joined this group.

My company has 5 or so Drupal sites for different purposes, such as our website (www.extraview.com) and for our end-user documentation (docs.extraview.com).

We have an occasional need for some custom PHP work to be done with modules and I'm looking for a local resource to help with this - our engineers are too busy with our core product. There's an immediate need to move some modules from version 6 to 7, and to help with the theme upgrade.

If you're interested, please contact me.

Thanks,

Carl Koppel

Rules are fun!

Hi Gang!
So I am trying to figure something out....I am using MyTinyTodo to create user to do lists. I have created a view so that I could use a block for display in certain contexts (using Omega+Context+Delta). The content type that utilizes the TinyTodo field also has a User Reference field that makes it so I can show view blocks based on UID contextual filter. I then created a rule that creates the node upon saving new user account and assigns the UID. When I run the test, the list does not show up. I check the view and enter the UID as a contextual filter and the list displays.

March Santa Cruz Drupal User Group Meeting - Nextspace 7pm to 9pm (Tuesday March 4, 2014)

Start: 
2014-03-04 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles
Event type: 
User group meeting

Our March SCDUG will be on Tuesday March 4th at 7pm.

What should we talk about?

We were thinking maybe learning about the various frontend technologies from a big picture perspective and how they all fit in with each other... types of grid systems, front-end preprocessors, responsive frameworks, etc. Not much detail on each of these, but just a laundry list of what is out there and how they fit into the bigger picture. This would need to be lead by Kristin (K2) and/or Julia and/or Carl and/or Darren :)

Thoughts? Other topics?

I normally don't post promotional crap that people tell me to, but given we talked about a) civiCRM and b) how wordpress is benefitted by having a paid ecosystem, I figured there might be some interest in this meetup. It's at cruzio this Tuesday (the 14th).

It's an open source CRM project, based out of SC. The guy in charge wants to have an ecosystem of local developers creating distributions to sell iirc. Snacks and booze!

Vagrant and Drupal

My fancy homebrew + dnsmasq & virtual host custom mamp localdev didn't make it past my upgrade to Mavericks... not wanting to go back to MAMP I decided it was time to learn how to use Vagrant. I'm liking it! It's basically a wrapper for vmware or virtual box that makes it handy to spin up isolated local test environments that you can create and destroy at will.

Two useful Drupal related projects:

https://drupal.org/project/drush-vagrant
https://drupal.org/project/drush-hosts

https://github.com/dotless-de/vagrant-vbguest is handy if you're using virtualbox

December Santa Cruz Drupal User Group Meeting - Nextspace 7pm to 9pm (Tuesday December 3, 2013)

Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Hi folks, the December Santa Cruz DUG meeting will be all about patches! Did you know it is not a module maintainer's job to review patches? Neither did I until I found it buried on this page. It is in fact the community's responsibility's to review patches. According to the doc, "Patches need a positive review by at least two people other than the original author before being declared Reviewed and tested by the community" Trouble is, nobody reviews contrib patches, and it's a big problem.
