Spokane, WA

This is a group for Drupal Users in Spokane, WA and surrounding area.

Welcome! We'd like to meet you:

  • If you'd like to chat with Spokane and other Pacific Northwest Drupal folks, join the #drupal-pnw IRC channel on Freenode (see http://drupal.org/irc for more information and instructions).
  • We're currently having a day-time "Learn and Co-Work" meeting on the second or third Thursday of most months (meetings are posted here, so check below for an upcoming meeting). All are welcome -- no experience necessary.
  • If you'd like to propose another type/format/time for meetings, feel free! All you need to do is join the group and then click "Create Event" in the sidebar, pick a time and place, and post it here -- probably people will show up. We also have a Wiki page that you can edit to indicate the best times/locations for you to attend meet-ups, if you're interested: http://groups.drupal.org/node/161584
  • There are annual gatherings of Pacific Northwest Drupal folks at the Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit -- those are discussed in a separate group: http://groups.drupal.org/pacific-nw-drupal-summits

Connecting with the community

We had a short discussion at yesterday's Spokane Drupal Group meeting about how to get connected with the wider Drupal community. So I thought I'd post a few ideas -- anyone with things to add, please do!

No October Spokane meeting (probably)...

We had a good meetup yesterday -- 3 people came, and once the power came back on (!), we had some good discussions and helped each other to resolve some Drupal issues that we were seeing. August was good too -- we had 7 people, and many lively Drupal-realted discussions.

But... I am thinking about not organizing a meeting for October. This is because I have a very busy schedule:
- Drupal beginner's workshop the next 3 Mondays: http://groups.drupal.org/node/169934

Beginner's Workshop in Spokane - planning

As discussed at one or more of the last Spokane Drupal Group meetings, I've been thinking of putting on a Drupal Site Building for Beginners workshop.

Ideas:
- Use Drupal 7 (even though it might not be fully ready for complex sites, it seems like it would be lame to use Drupal 6 at this point)
- Topics: Installation, Blocks, Menus, Content types/fields, Views, Webforms, and maybe some other basics

Spokane Drupal Meetup - when/where would work best?

Apparently, at least one person has not been attending the Drupal meetings in Spokane, due to them being on Wednesdays (I didn't know -- just assumed that since they had been on Wednesdays, we should keep doing Wednesdays). So, starting with the August meeting (too late to change July at this point), I'd like to find out what day(s) work for people. We might alternate days (like, say, Tuesday one month and Wednesday the next) -- but let's see which days work for people.

problems with Private Files on Media Temple DV server

Hey everyone, I'm having problems serving private files on Media Temple's DV servers. I've never built a site that needed access to images/files served privately, so this is new. Maybe someone else has experience with this in D7.

Here's the story: I'm at the tail end of building a brand asset management system for a client. The the site will be serving logomarks, photography, presentation docs, video. These files need to only be accessible to logged-in users.

March meeting?

Hello Spokane folks!

I'm currently living in Seattle, but am contemplating a move to Spokane later this year. We will most likely be taking a trip to Spokane starting March 19, for one or possibly two weeks, to do a scoping-out trip (house hunting, and so my partner can work from the Spokane/Liberty Lake office of the company he works for, to see if he wants to work there).

Any chance you might be having a Drupal Group meeting during that time frame? It would be fun to meet the Spokane crowd.
