triDUG

TriDUG LogoOur mission is to connect Drupal users in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, North Carolina and surrounding areas. We get together monthly for presentations, site demonstrations, and hack nights. Our goal is to help new Drupal users get up to speed, foster the development of existing Drupal designers and Developers, and contribute to the larger Drupal community. The Research Triangle has a big concentration of technical folks, universities, and start-ups and we want to expose as many people as possible to Drupal and all that it offers.

Propose a meeting topic here.
Find us on IRC at #drupal-nc and on Twitter at TriDUG

Serving Drupal versus Development

Greeting everyone,
My name is Cy Jobes and I work for Local Government Federal Credit Union in Raleigh, NC. (www.lgfcu.org)

We are looking to use Drupal in our next design of our website. In doing so we will be using more of what seems to be an enterprise level of things. I say “enterprise” because every person I ask about our method of development and live servers, and how we need to have them setup, tells me I need someone with enterprise experience.

Interest in an RTP NC Area DrupalCamp

Short Version:

Please take this Triangle DrupalCamp interest survey:

https://learn2.dukece.com/surveys/drupalcamp

Long Version:

At various times in the past folks have talked about a Triangle area DrupalCamp. During the TriDUG IRC planning meeting today, it seems like there finally might be enough people interested in helping make this happen.

During the meeting, I promised to query folks here about times that would be best to have an exploration meeting. (Afternoon of next co-working day was suggested...).

Anyway, after some research into organizing a DrupalCamp, e.g.;

TriDUG August Meeting - Resources for Using Sass & Haml with Drupal

I’ve not used Haml for anything ever, but I have used Sass for sites that I’ve coded by hand, though not with Drupal. With that in mind, I also haven’t watched these presentations, but I do remember the first one getting a lot of excited buzz at DrupalCon Chicago. Finally if you grow to love Sass, look into using the Compass CSS authoring framework that builds on Sass and makes it even more amazing:

The following presentations were made at the past two DrupalCons in the US:

DrupalCon Chicago 2011
Themeing Haiku with Haml, Sass, and Peroxide.

TriDUG August Meeting - Chrome Canary digression

The following blog post inspired me to start using Chrome Canary: http://jtaby.com/2012/04/23/modern-web-development-part-1.html and I haven’t looked back since. If you’re a developer that link has a ton of stuff that I can’t possibly remember about what you can do with the Canary edition of Chrome. As a designer, I primarily use it the same way I used Firebug: checking CSS and layout issues.
