Scheduling Support Hours in #DrupalDojo IRC

Until such time as we have a better solution for managing support hours in the #drupal-dojo IRC, we thought we would simply start a wiki page where Volunteers could post 'Office Hours' for specific types of Drupal support.

If you are willing to try your hand a mentoring or supporting others having difficulties in particular areas please sign up here. We'll do our best to create events and to promote that you are available during those hours in the Drupal-Dojo IRC.

Ideally we would eventually work toward having a regular support schedule, but we will work up to that.

Vote for DrupalCon Copenhagen sessions for teaching & learning Drupal

Of course we all expect to learn a lot at a DrupalCon, but these sessions are specifically about training for Drupal, or about learning Drupal. These might be of particular interest to those who are trainers or developing Drupal learning materials; or provide training services and documentation for clients.

Survey: What do Drupalistas do?

We worked on this survey collaboratively to gain an understanding of what people really do in Drupal. We formed a hypothesis that 'roles' exist conceptually, but maybe not in the wild. Read some background to the working group.

Take the survey http://gs-survey.com/s.asp?s=12001

About it: This survey is a first step in understanding what Drupalistas do.
Who should take it? People who develop, design and maintain Drupal websites.
The survey takes approximately 8 minutes to complete.

Please help spread the word, thank you!
