What is Drupal? For large and complex websites, nothing beats Drupal! Where do you start? What is the best way to organize your project to get the best chance of success?

Join us at Droplabs on Friday & Saturday, June 15-16, 2012, for a Barn Raising and Code Sprint to benefit the Echo Park Time Bank and TimeBanks USA!

There's something for everyone at this two-day event and you're welcome to attend either or both days. If you're interested in learning more about Drupal and getting some practical hands-on experience, or if you're a Drupal power user and would like to help mentor others into using Drupal's best practices for site development, this is an excellent opportunity.

The Echo Park Time Bank is a non-profit community collective with a mission to facilitate the cooperative exchange of goods and services among its hundreds of members. Since September 2011, the Echo Park Time Bank has been using Drupal to manage their community website at http://arroyoseco.timebanks.org and its currency system.

At this barn raising, we'll be improving the online membership application and implementing a realname policy for usernames. The work we do will be shared with TimeBanks USA, which will directly benefit the 300+ time banks that have their own sites that use the same Drupal distribution.

This is our second barn raising for the time bank and directly builds upon the work we completed last time. See http://ex.tl/ZTT for more information about our last barn raising and code sprint.

Organizers: 

Join us for a VPS and Virtualmin Installfest at Droplabs on Saturday, April 21, 2012. We're going to discuss VPS (virtual private server) hosting, when and why you should be using it, and we'll have a brief presentation on Virtualmin, a free, open-source control panel.

The second part of the workshop is a hands-on installfest. We'll be getting as many people up and running with their own VPS servers, and optionally install Virtualmin for those who want it.

A Note About VPS Hosting

Please note that running ones own server isn't for the faint of heart. If you're happy with shared hosting or have limited time and resources, then this workshop is probably not for you.

This workshop is intended for people who want to further their knowledge and are ready for — or already have — VPS or dedicated hosting and all the power and performance options that come with that.
