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.

I'll be in town this weekend for IDEA

I'm going to http://ideaconference.org/, which is at the central library. I'll be arriving Saturday and leaving Tuesday evening.

I was thinking of commandeering a Drupal lunch group of conference goers, either Monday (http://ideaconference.org/wiki/index.php?title=Monday_Lunch_Groups) or Tuesday (http://ideaconference.org/wiki/index.php?title=Tuesday_Lunch_Groups). Anyone want to meet up near the library on either day? Know any good places for food?

Seattle DUG, October 4th?

Hey everyone, i just got back from a bit of a whirlwind 2 weeks of travel, and am off again on thursday for NYC for a week.

Looks like there are 3 votes for october 4th, though one is non committal. I'll not be in seattle on the 4th. Robin, if the meeting happens on the 4th, can you lead? If so, post an event so folks can start signing up.

Otherwise, maybe we should consider october 11?

Community Steps and the Legislative Score Card

shawn,

Not sure if you have seen this http://www.elderweb.com/demo
but some of the work KarenS has done, as well as some of the stuff she is demoing on this site might have implications for the legislative score card system you are working on. Particularly views_calc http://drupal.org/node/67344

I'm thinking that with:
cck
views
contemp
views_cal
civinode
civicrm

you could create a recipe for legislative score card keeping that woudl avoid having to build and maintain a custom module for it. (can you email me directly too? i don't have your email address, i don't think)

No More Red Line - Notes from 9/6 Meeting

Seven of us attended The Seattle Group's 2nd meeting. I took some notes during the meeting

After doing a round of introductions, we gathered some questions and subjects.

  • If using Google Maps, how do you get two maps on one page? This question went unanswered, so if anybody knows please comment.
  • CiviCRM
  • CCK and Views (if time allows, otherwise a future meeting topic)

Many modules were mentioned during our discussions:

  • Voting Module
  • Civimail and link tracking
  • Heat Tracking Module (New) - tracks mouse movement on a page
  • Google Analytics Module - adds the code you need to hook into Google Analytics

Seattle DUG Meeting (September 6)

Start: 
2006-09-06 17:00 - 20:00 US/Pacific

Come meet other Drupal programers and users at the 2nd official seattle DUG meeting.
Please post topics you would like to discuss, or specific things you might like to work on.

At the end of the last DUG meeting we talked about possibly breaking off into groups and working on some specific issues problems, maybe even some co coding, or site disection.

DUG meetings are what you make of them, lets dig in and get our hands dirty next month!

I would propose that we do intros and news from 5 to 5:30 and then perhaps split off into smaller groups after that for about 90 minutes, then come back together to close up for about 30 minutes.

Seattle DUG a success

We had a good DUG meetup yesterday in seattle, i think about a dozen folks showed up, beer was drunk, pizza eaten, and drupal questions answered.

Some of the questions that came up that we discussed were
1) when is it time to use the new version of Drupal?
2) when to use contrib modules, vs build your own
3) what goes where? modules, themes (tpl or css), database

We'll be meeting again next month, 1st wednesday of the month, same time, same place.

Potential Locations for Drupal Camp Seattle

Some ideas on space:
Seattle Public Library: ballard branch or central branch (www.spl.org)

The Community Living Room ( The Community Living Room is located at Phinney Ave North, in Fremont. It is the former Redhook Brewery, at the SE corner of 35th & Phinney, between 36th and the canal. It's the first door in the red brick building on Phinney just south of 35th under the sign, "Brewery Tours & Offices". There is a pay lot across the street if you can't find free street parking.)
