Drupal 8 has been released and it is a huge advancement, but it is also a huge departure from the past.
• Drupal 8 overview. So we're all coming from the same base knowledge, we'll mutually share posts and information about the new features and functionality of Drupal 8.
This will be a great topic for anyone.
• Migrating to Drupal 8. Building a new site in Drupal 8 might seem elementary compared to moving an existing, mission-critical Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 site to D8. Rick will share our experiences in planning and estimating migrations off of Drupal 6.Read more

For November, we have something for the absolute beginner and for the experienced Drupal developer.
Getting started? Exploring?
We have been asked to do a beginners tutorial on getting going with Drupal. If you're new to Drupal over the past 6 months to 1 year, this will be the session for you.
Actually, if you have never touched Drupal before and you're trying to figure out if you have an application for it, this will be a great session for you, too.Read more
Hi there, I'm hoping a SQL ninja will find it in his or her heart to provide me with some advice.
I've created a page view which does the following:
- Pulls in nodes from two different content types
- Filters by two different term references, one for each content type.
It's not working, although in my mind (and limited sql understanding), it should. I think maybe there's an issue with the inner joins, because it seems the sql statement would working if they weren't there.
Anyways, I've attached two images, one of the api and one of the actual sql statement.Read more
Which CMS should you use on your project? Let's compare and contrast!
We'd had multiple folks in our local Drupal community volunteer to demo a site in a competing CMS. We'll compare the features and functionality in Drupal terms that we use all the time:
• Content types and fields
• Permissions and access control
• Contributed ecosystem
• Plugin/module development
• Contributed ecosystem
• System requirements
• Learning curve
And here are the contenders:Read more

This is usually one of the most popular and useful meetings of the year. Anyone who went to DrupalCon LA will come in to talk about the most insightful, future-facing and sometimes ridiculous things at DrupalCon.

We have 2 presentations this month on tools to use in developing Drupal sites Docker and Grunt.
Docker. So, you're going to work on a Drupal site. You need to create a local version on your computer. Before you can even start doing productive work, you've got all this work to do: pull the code, grab the database, set up your environment, is it time for lunch yet? Let alone, will your client understand that this must be done before you can actually start addressing their issues? (Yes, clients have issues.)Read more
