Tomorrow evening at 7:00 PM, myself and Heron Heron Ordoñez of Nvidia will be presenting our notes on how we were able to achieve a complex Drupal 6 to 7 migration with roughly two minutes of website downtime.
We'll be covering the migration from both a Drupal standpoint, and what was needed on the server side to achieve this near 100% automation. The Drupal 7 site architecture was built from scratch during the migration process using a script and features/custom modules. We'll also be discussing how to use multithreading with Drupal.Read more
The Stanford Drupal Camp is a two-day event to discuss and learn about Drupal, an open-source content management system that powers thousands of websites at Stanford, and millions of websites beyond.
This year, the Stanford Drupal Camp emphasizes introductory sessions focused on content strategy as well as thought-provoking sessions for researchers in academia. Those new to Drupal and Content Strategy will be particularly interested in the events on Friday, whereas experienced Drupallers (yes, we spell it with two "L"s at Stanford) may be more interested in Saturday's program.Read more
On Tuesday, Sep 1st Ferlito/van der Wyk will be taking over the Santa Cruz Drupal Group. We will be unveiling our new decoupled site and discussing all things decoupled.
When: August 13 @ 6 PM.
Where: UCSC Extension (Room 208), 2505 Augustine Dr, Santa Clara, CA
What to expect: Drupal, Beer and Snack...
Please sign up/register for the event on meetup.com (Silicon Valley Drupal User Group): http://www.meetup.com/DrupalGroup/
We believe with large software application that needs to be developed and maintained over a long period of time would require automated testing.
Challenge: Currently unit testing with Drupal 7 is not supported very well majorly because of its dependence on a persistent DB connection and lack of dependency injection.Read more
We are going to bring up a fully functional Drupal 8 site in one hour! 'We' means you, too. Online audience participation will also be via Google Hangouts On Air. Come to GoDaddy in Sunnyvale or see https://plus.google.com/events/c11cab0smpf15g38j6da704kfa8 for the Hangout that begins on Wednesday at 7pm.
Will too many Drupalers spoil the spin? Will Drupal 8 alone (no modules added) be sufficient? Is Beta 12 good enough to stand up for this? Are we crazy???
Be there and see.Read more

This meeting will be broadcast over Google Hangouts On Air. See the MeetUp link for details.
Our Speaker is Aimee Degnan, a co-founder of Hook 42, an author of the upcoming book on Multilingual for Drupal 8, and a contributor to the Drupal 8 multilingual initiative.
