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.

Developing RESTful Web Services and APIs is a 2-day training on November 3 & 4, 2011, with an optional third day of additional hands-on support for those developers seeking accelerated understanding of exploiting Services 3.0 to its fullest.
During this training, the experts at Exaltation of Larks cover the fundamentals of using the Drupal Services module to create, test and support use of your own web API. This training covers Services 3.0 for both Drupal 6 and Drupal 7.
This is the training you need if you're using Drupal to create a backend for iPad, iPhone or Android applications. Developing your own web API is essential to entering the SaaS (Software as a Service) business model and this training gets you there.

We will be having our monthly Santa Cruz Drupal user group meeting tonight at 7pm at Nextspace... sorry for the late reminder.
I will be presenting a draft version of a talk on the features module that I am preparing for BADCamp:
See you there..
Cal State Monterey Bay is looking for a great team to help with a CRM project for managing student relationships. Our team is committed to Drupal; however, we just have so many projects that we need your help to get this one out the door!
We are expecting to release this project as an open-source install profile after we've tested it on our campus, and we hope that interested firms are equally excited to do work that will benefit both our campus and other universities and colleges as well.Read more

About this page
This is a list of the known Drupal user groups in California. Here are some of the things that can be done with this information:
- It is now much easier to find the California groups you'd like to join. Just click the name of the group you want to join and click the "Join" link in the sidebar of that group's page.
- If you are creating a new group in California, list it here to let others know about it.
- Depending on how #1074208 (Add a location field to group node) goes, a California-specific map showing the user groups can be created using this information (e.g. a Google map with markers showing the locations of all the groups and their meetups)
- Add your ideas here!
For the next Santa Cruz Drupal user group meeting, Julia van der Wyk will be presenting about a topic that is not specific to Drupal so feel free to invite your non-Drupal friends to come along as well.
Julia will be discussing how to help your clients write and organize content for their website. This is relevant in how thinking about content changes once you are in a CMS vs. when you are using static pages.
We may have time for another topic as well if someone else wants to present something. Please let a comment if so.Read more

I'm posting this one to the Bay Area groups as well in case anyone wants to come over the hill for the event.
Does anyone want to carpool to the SVDUG next Wednesday, June 15. It's from 5:30 PM to 8pm so we'd need to leave around 4:45pm. I should be able to drive and I have a mini-van now so can take a lot of people.
[update 5/13/11] Going to head out of town instead... let's try to carpool for the July meeting if I'm in town.
I've uploaded my presentation on setting up xdebug from tonight's meeting. I've updated it a bit for clarity as well.
Have fun with it.
Darryl Richman has offered to go over his use of D6 Location/GMap/Views-Attachment usage for his site:
I don't think I will be able to make it tonight... our "go live" has been pushed out until Thursday and I'm still getting stuff ready. If I make it then I can give you a preview of the site. If I don't make it, have fun!
[Note: I am posting this on behalf of my friends over at Rad Campaign. They are seeking a back-end developer and are open to employing someone remotely who has the right skills and work ethic. I frequently subcontract for them and they are a GREAT firm run by friendly, competent people who really have their act together, as well as a great portfolio of clients.]Read more
