Drupal 8 Play Date (Sept 26)

Start: 
2015-09-26 09:30 - 16:00 America/Chicago
Event type: 
User group meeting


Drupal 8 is almost ready! For a few moments (last week), we were down to only 3 critical issues. Since then the number has bumped back up into the teens. But with DrupalCon Barcelona coming next week, the chances are very good that we'll see some significant movement - with a release candidate in the very near future!

Let's celebrate by having a hands-on PLAY DATE with DRUPAL EIGHT.

This will be a great opportunity for beginners and advanced coders alike to get an introduction to Drupal 8 and start setting up a site of their own.

Gathering places for Drupal Developers

Is there any places in the Twin Cities that people meet on a weekly schedule to learn Drupal? I'd like to get a real quick overview of Drupal and dive right in. I'm still new to Drupal. I know there's the monthly meetup but that is still a little bit away. If there's such a place where Drupal learners gather then I would love to know. I don't mind paid learning suggestions also.

Thanks

Backend Talent Needed ASAP

Hi Oly/Seattle and Chicago Drupal folks. I am posting this in the hopes that someone local has a bit of time and the skill to assist us.

We have a project for a major NFL fan site that has a very tight timeline and we could really use another pair of hands on the backend API integration pieces.

We have a lead developer and would very much like to add another to supplement and meet the deadline of July 24.

Please email cmcgrath@celebratedrupal.com to discuss rate and availability. Thanks!

Ride sharing at TCDC

I'm wondering if anyone else is flying in/out Wednesday/Sunday and would be interested in sharing a ride? I suppose I'll need to get a cab unless someone already has transport at that time and room for me. :)

On Wednesday, I arrive at the airport at 4pm and will be going to the Millennium Hotel.
On Sunday, I will be leaving from the sprints and need to be there in time to take off at 4PM so I suppose I need to leave about 1?
