Welcome to the Southern Colorado User Group (SCUG). We work with other Drupal users and developers throughout southern Colorado to
- promote Drupal in southern Colorado and the Colorado Springs area
- educate local Drupal users in front-end and back-end design and development
- provide a common setting for general discussion and conferences regarding Drupal
This will be a hands on meeting to get you up and running with a local Drupal development environment.
- Do you need to quickly spin up local Drupal development environments?
- Are you tired of manually configuring the LAMP stack for local development?
- Do you struggle to remember all the best practices for local development?
Bring your laptop and your learning cap as we dig into vagrant, virtualbox, and chef.Read more

Panels, panels, panels! Panels are a powerful tool for content layout in a Drupal site and the guys from Oxbow will show tips and tricks they use to make the most of panels.
Wait. Panels alternatives, you say? What about Display Suite? Is Context really a layout function or is it really designed for something completely different?
We convene to eat and socialize starting at 5:45. The actual meeting will start sometime after 6:30. Oxbow Labs is providing the pizza. Monarch is providing the sodas.Read more
This month, we'll have lightning talks on a wide variety of subjects.

Winn Jewett has volunteered to give an overview of how Oxbox uses panels.

Hey all! With the release of a couple large Space Foundation Drupal projects, I've (Chris Stevens) been asked to co-organize the December Southern Colorado Drupal Meetup. My hopes are to provide some topic options, but leave the floor open to anything anyone wants to discuss (we could even skip Space Foundation stuff altogether if there are other great endeavors).
Potential topics (please check any that sound fun):
* Custom event website tour: www.spacesymposium.org (D7 - could use some tough love if you see anything confusing or strange)
As a drupal web developer at Oxbow Labs, you will play in integral role in building amazing websites. At Oxbow Labs, each website is hand-crafted to each client's specific needs. Drupal web developers perform the bulk of the development tasks involved in building and maintaining websites, including initial web configuration, planning and implementing content types, designing and building views, building custom Drupal modules, as well as ensuring the usability of the website remains excellent through the development process.
As a Drupal web developer with a focus on back-end development, you will spend the majority of your time in the development, planning, and QA phases (usually in that order). The ideal candidate has a solid Drupal background, and has contributed back to the Drupal community. He or she is comfortable working in small teams, and can balance several projects at once.Read more
