Seattle

Welcome to the Seattle Users' Group!

The SEADUG meets regularly (at least once a month officially) to talk about Drupal, to plan Drupal events like Drupal Camp, and have some Drupal Fun. During SEADUG meetings we showcase modules and projects. Share tips and tricks and answer nagging questions about Drupal. We've discussed possible "barn raisings" for worthy organizations or code sprinting on modules.

This is a geographic Drupal User Group meant primarily for planning local Drupal related events and meetups, and supporting users locally.

PLEASE do not post job offers in this group unless they are local to Seattle. Any job posted to this group that is not in the Seattle/Puget Sound Metropolitan Area will be promptly removed.

If you are a consultant or vendor providing Drupal services in the Seattle/King County Metro Area ONLY, please add your name to this post.

Posting Seattle local jobs

The "Create Job" link in the right sidebar now takes you to a page for Drupal Jobs. Is that indicating that jobs should only be posted there and not directly to the SEADUG group anymore?

Why is it difficult to find a Drupal Manager?

We've been trying to fill this position since May. Talented senior Drupal experts are so hard to recruit. Why is that?

Using URL's vs descriptions in alt tags

Hi,

A marketing company I'm working with suggests putting URL's in my Only local images are allowed. alt tags. I've always used concise descriptions, and don't understand how a URL in an alt tag would help SEO, screen readers for folks with accessibility issues, or browsers that can't/don't display images for one reason or another.

Anyone have any experience/info about using URL's in alt tags?

Thanks.

Backend Talent Needed ASAP

Hi Oly/Seattle and Chicago Drupal folks. I am posting this in the hopes that someone local has a bit of time and the skill to assist us.

We have a project for a major NFL fan site that has a very tight timeline and we could really use another pair of hands on the backend API integration pieces.

We have a lead developer and would very much like to add another to supplement and meet the deadline of July 24.

Please email cmcgrath@celebratedrupal.com to discuss rate and availability. Thanks!

Drupal Theme

Hi all,

As some of you recommend, I will use Pantheon as my hosting. The next step is choosing the theme for Drupal Site. At this point, I have checked out themes from Drupal.org. But after installing some of them, I find that only part of the theme will display comparing to demos.

Drupal Hosting Questions

Hi all,

Currently I will potentially start a project with Drupal. Before starting the project, I should find a good hosting server. But this is my first time to build website with Drupal, I don't have too much knowledge to find the right hosting server. Hope any of you could provide me some suggestions, recommandations or resource about Drupal hosting server. Any of comments will be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you!

1-on-1 Drupal Training in Seattle

Hi all! Thanks for a very informative and entertaining meeting last week. I will definitely be attending the NW Drupal Summit (Seattle) and further SeattleDUG meetings. I was the new, younger guy in the back. Even though many of the concepts were foreign to me and still are, I felt like I got key insights into Drupal workflow and terminology.

Looking to learn drupal enough to port an existing site (including all functionality)

Hi guys,

It was great to meet some of you this past Thursday at the meetup.

As I said there, I am currently working with a small indie games studio, and one of the things we need/want to do is to take the existing site we have and migrate it from the current Joomla 'thing' that was built by me with a half-baked knowledge of Joomla based on a site/theme I'd initially built for the company with hand-crafted PHP/HTML and move it to something that has the power and flexibility that Drupal seems to afford (and hopefully avoid to many pitfalls in the process).

Any experience with Acquia Developer certification?

I'm currently looking to improve my resume and get a certification.

Acquia has several certification programs. I'm mostly interested in the Developer certification.

Does anyone have experience taking one of these?

I understand certifications mean little in our field and at the end of the day, experience is what gets you hired. However I can see the benefit for an employer to request this certification to estimate a potential candidate's knowledge.

Mailing Service for Drupal discussed in user group couple of months ago

There was a presentation at the users group 2 or 3 months back about a good alternative to sending emails directly out of Drupal using services on the hosting server. I cannot remember what that was. Can someone let me know what it was and point me to (or send) any notes you had on configuration and implementation? Thanks!
