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.

101 Cooper St.
Santa Cruz, CA 95060

When it's really ready™

There's an interesting post by XJM that came up on Drupal Planet this morning. In it, she discusses the state of critical bug levels in D8. The good news is that the core devs are holding their ground now and hopefully, the count will start to gradually reduce.

But what I found interesting was a remark she made in passing:

User group meeting

The October SCDUG will be Tuesday October 1st from 6pm to 9pm at Nextspace. Note the earlier time for those who can come early. If you can't come early, come whenever you can.

We will do a D8 (core and/or contrib) sprint this time. You do not need to know how to code to sprint. You can test patches and try out D8 and find/report bugs :)

Paul suggested that some of us could port small contrib modules from D7 to D8. We could work on some of the Examples modules for this or whatever your favorite small D7 module is that you want to port.

September Meeting - more Drupal 8?

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.

BADCamp Signups?

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.

Darren Odden

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.

Hi all!!!

Host?

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?

Moving venues?

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?

Windows Server 2008 Permissions problem

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!

    Best Californian companies

    Hi.
    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?
