Science on Drupal

Drupal enables science teams to collaborate, communicate and manage metadata. Science on Drupal is where scientists, communicators and data managers can come to find out more about Drupal, and developers can help them out. We meet to share knowledge, provide support and collaborate on identifying and architecting shared solutions to common problems for Science on Drupal. Join us to discuss how Drupal and science can work together!

Meetups

  1. Telecon on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 3-4pm ET on GoToMeeting to learn about Drupal's capabilities, explore new technologies and share case studies
  2. Office Hours on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 2-4pm ET on Slack for chat, planning and code sprints to solve problems and add features for the science community

Howtos & Training

About us

The group is chaired by David Bassendine of Blue Dot Lab and Adam Shepherd of the Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. We are generously supported by the ESIP Federation.

Science on Drupal: Survey on our direction and focus for 2017

Hi everyone,

We're working to set our direction for 2017 and beyond - to ensure we're well aligned to help with your day-to-day needs and plans for the future, please do fill out our short survey at:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XBPDWSD

It's very brief and would be helpful to understand the landscape of how Drupal is used, focus areas of relevance to you, and whether our mission should target a niche rather than a single technology - along with any other thoughts or suggestions you have.

Thanks! David
