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 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.

Future Meeting Idea - Deploying data between staging environments

Is there a best practice for deploying between Dev, Staging, and Production? Who has worked with deploy. Are there other tools that people use to do the heavy lifting?

Is there a NextSpace member

Is there a NextSpace member in the group that is hosting the SC DUG? This entails being present, opening the door, etc while the meeting is going on. If not please let me know so I can try and make sure I make myself available for the meeting on a regular basis. I will schedule the room under my membership so that it is a held space.

Organizers: 

Darryl Richman has graciously offered to do a presentation on data migration in Drupal including Migrate module in Drupal 7.

Here's what he wrote about it:

I can probably show some of the things I've learned about the Migrate module for Drupal 7. Migrate is one of two or three ways (Feeds and ad hoc SQL hacking, are the others I'm thinking of) to get data from other systems, including previous versions of Drupal, into D7.

Here's Darryl's website: http://darryl.crafty-fox.com
