A few of us at are staying late tomorrow evening at Droplabs to deploy a Drupal site. We'll be working with Git and a DV server at Media Temple and will set up dev, test and live sites. You're invited to attend, participate, ask questions and learn how to make this a highly repeatable process for you and your clients.Read more
Save the date! On Friday, May 6, Droplabs is kicking into open beta and throwing what's shaping up to be an extraordinary event, in conjunction with Toyshoppe Systems, another company at Big Art Labs. All of Big Art will turn out, so we thought it would be a great opportunity for the Drupal community to mingle with the Big Art community at the beginning of Drupal's first hacker / co-working space.
It's potluck barbecue, with a great big bonfire, so bring something to throw on the grill, something to drink, and something to munch on. Evenings have been a bit cool, so unless you're super warm blooded, you might find that you need a jacket.
Droplabs' open beta is just that: we're opening up to the community, and not charging until we officially launch in June. We want to give you an opportunity to try it out for free and see how you use it, tell us what you want or don't want, and generally feel free to hang out as much or as little as you want. You know, open beta. Bring your laptop. Show up. Use the space. Interact with your fellow Drupaleros and see how much joy you can bring to your Drupal practice.
We have some furniture, and before we invest in more, we want to see what the needs of the community actually are. (We'll also gladly accept furniture donations.)Read more
Following the interest shown since the DrupalCamp LA 2010 keynote, the last two LA Drupal meetups and the great discussion at http://groups.drupal.org/node/100049 a group of us are checking out spaces for a coworking / hackerspace. Our first site visit is to Big Art Labs on Wednesday (Groundhog's Day!), February 2, 2011 at 1pm.
While this space will be open to all our friends in the LA Drupal community, this is not an LA Drupal-specific endeavor. If you're interested in a place where creative and technical people gather for a Drupal meetup or Drupal Café every day and the occasional Drupal After Dark at night, then join us and help make this happen!
Big Art Labs is at 651 Clover St., Los Angeles, CA 90031. There's so much parking that we don't know what to do with it all. Sign up below to be on this site visit's mailing list. We'll send you our phone number and any last-minute details if there are any.Read more
