Local Drupal Development

During our UMass Users Group meeting on April 2, 2015 Joanne Patalano, Gary Parker, and myself (Bill Leahy) presented a couple different ways to setup local development environments. I welcome everyone to add information or ask questions about local development.

As promised, I've attaching a PDF of the workflow I presented for Duplicating a UMass site using Vagrant Drupal Development https://www.drupal.org/project/vdd

Thanks.

New England Drupalcamp is now NEDcamp.

There have been recent conversations concerning the acronym for New England Drupalcamp, and our goals for the camp.

However, we learned recently that we were jeopardizing the same sense of community we were hoping to foster with our old acronym. After listening to the concerns put forth by community members, it was time for a change.

Moving forward, New England Drupalcamp is to be known as NEDcamp.
