Start: 
2013-03-16 10:00 - 17:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 

We had such a great time at last week's Drupal Sprint Weekend that we're doing it again. Join us at Droplabs on Saturday, March 19, 2013, for another day of Drupal, patch reviews and sprints / hackathons on your favorite Drupal projects.

Those interested in attending this event remotely are welcome to join us via a Google+ Hangout. The hangout URL will be posted soon.

Afterward, we'll be going out for a Drupal After Dark with the teams that built the robots for Robot Combat League, the robot exosuit combat show on the Syfy network. Yeah, a day of Drupal and robots!

What's a "code sprint"?

Code sprints are organized events where attendees meet online or in person (and sometimes both) and work toward a shared goal.

Local area organizers have produced several code sprints in recent history, including sprints focused on building the SCALE conference website, resolving issues in the Drupal 7 issue queue and updating the Conference Organizing Distribution (COD) project to Drupal 7.

See https://drupal.org/node/247982 for more information.

What's the code sprint about?

Good question! There will be 3 separate themes at this event:

  • Bring in your Drupal projects and cowork with other Drupal community members! This is great opportunity to cowork with others in a low-key environment where anyone in attendance can ask questions and both offer and receive help on their personal and community projects.
  • Members of the Greater Los Angeles Area Drupal Camp (GLADCamp) organizing team will be working on the GLADCamp website, adding features, fixing bugs, and adding content about the conference, including sponsorship levels, hotel information, and local attractions;
  • Droplabs will also provide a FREE mentored Drupal training using Build a Module videos focusing on Advanced Site Building. Just bring your laptop and a pair of headphones. A Droplabs staff member will set up you with a day pass.

Start: 
2013-03-19 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles

We're excited to announce the next Frontend Drupal Meetup, a meetup focusing on design, usability, accessibility and theming. This month, we're meeting again at Media Temple in Culver City, CA, between 7-9pm on Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Those interested in attending this event remotely can join us via WebEx.

GLADCamp.org Case Study

At this meetup, Sebastian Chedal (@fountainwire) will highlight some of the development tips and techniques used to produce the theme for this year's Greater Los Angeles Area Drupal Camp website at GLADCamp.org.

Sebastian will delve into design, programming and mobile/tablet considerations. The session will cover conditional stylesheets, JavaScript, patching, contributed modules, some PHP and how to override the output of a particular image style with a custom module.

From Fixed to Responsive

Mario Hernandez (@designsdrive) is a Front-End Web Developer and Lead Designer for The U.S. District Court Central District of California, the largest Federal Court in the United States. In 2012, Mario lead the design and development of the Court's public-facing website which is powered by Drupal.

Using a theme provided by the Administrative Office in DC as a starting point, the website was transformed into a responsive website making the first of its kind for a Federal Court. In this session, Mario will discuss the challenges and opportunities presented during this project and will describe the various techniques used to turned a fixed-width theme into a responsive theme.

We're soliciting additional presentations for this meetup. If there's a topic that you'd like give a presentation on, please leave a comment in the comments below. Likewise, if there's a topic that you'd like to learn more about, you're welcome to make a request in the comments below. Thank you!

Start: 
2013-02-28 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 

This month we hope to do some preparation for the upcoming Drupal 8 sprint: http://groups.drupal.org/node/277768 -- perhaps if we have enough local interest we can join the sprint formally as a group the weekend of Mar 9. Otherwise, our goal is to help everyone interested in joining this, or another sprint, to be prepared and have the tools they need to help contribute to Drupal.

It will likely be pretty informal and very hands on Q&A. We'll also have lots of time for networking and general Drupal Q&A.
