Start: 
2014-03-07 19:00 - 21:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Drupalcamp or Regional Summit

We're having another Drupal employers summit! Invitations are being sent out for this special event, which is during the evening on Friday, March 7th.

Our last summit was at Droplabs in January, 2013, and half a dozen Greater Los Angeles Area companies offering Drupal services were represented. This time, we're partnering with GLADCamp and are having our summit at the Hilton Pasadena & Convention Center on Friday, March 7th.

About the Employers Summit

This event is a roll-up-your-sleeves working meeting for companies and organizations who use and depend on Drupal, as well as its healthy business community and marketplace. We'll be meeting one another (many for the first time) and discussing the following topics:

  • Building a healthy marketplace of colleagues and potential partners;
  • Getting the most out of our recruiting and marketing dollar;
  • What we're doing now to staff up, from local recruiting and in-house training to outsourcing and hiring out-of-town or overseas;
  • Identifying the skills, job titles and qualifications of desirable candidates, employees and vendors;
  • Workshops, trainings and other programs that most or all of us can get behind in order to solve our business needs.

Are you a non-profit? Do you need a new website? Apply for the Barn Raising at GLADCamp!

Today is our official call for barn raising applications at this year's GLADCamp, the Greater Los Angeles Drupal Camp!

On March 9, 2014, we'll be building a website from scratch to include much needed functionality, design, and other work required by a local 501c3 non-profit organization.

This event is "Drupal for Good in action" and is a teach-and-learn opportunity for our local Drupal community and is a win-win-win for everyone.

What's a Barn Raising?

From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn_raising

  • A "barn raising" describes a collective action of a community, in which a barn for one of the members is built or rebuilt collectively by members of the community.
  • Barn raising was particularly common in 18th- and 19th-century rural North America. A barn was a necessary structure for any farmer, for example for storage of cereals and hay and keeping of animals. Yet a barn was also a large and costly structure, the assembly of which required more labor than a typical family could provide.
  • Barn raising addressed the need by enlisting members of the community, unpaid, to assist in the building of their neighbors' barns. Because each member was entitled to recruit others for help, the favor would eventually return to each participant.

Just replace the word "barn" in the description above with "website" and you'll see that we've adapted this "barn raising" model for the digital world.

Plan and discuss the first Extreme Drupal Games (aka the "Golden Neckbeard" competition) for GLADCamp 2014

This year's GLADCamp conference will feature the first Extreme Drupal Games! This event will run throughout the conference, beginning on Friday, March 7th and ending when winners are announced at the closing of the conference on Sunday, March 9th.

We have a sponsor who will be donating 6 identical VMs (distro and stack TBD) for us to use during the conference. I've asked that each VM have a minimum of 2 cores and 4GB of RAM, but exact specs are still being worked out. These VMs are hosted at 1 Wilshire in Downtown Los Angeles, so there will be extremely low latency.

The plan right now is for up to 6 teams to compete over the course of the weekend, tuning both the stack and the Drupal application to get the best possible performance in the allotted time. The team with the fastest Drupal site at the end of the conference will be declared the winner.

Now that we have a date and time, the question is how we're going to load test and judge the teams. What are the rules? Do we test for both anonymous and logged in users? Will contestants be permitted to rip out pieces of the stack and install completely different ones? How about the use of premade scripts? Do we allow commercial software, or go 100% free and open source?
