University of Minnesota

The University of Minnesota Drupal User Group works to share knowledge and resources, find solutions to shared challenges, and enable effective use of Drupal at University of Minnesota campuses across Minnesota. Staff, students, and faculty are all welcome here.

We will strive to be a bridge, not a silo, and encourage participation and sharing with others in our communities, be they geographical (Twin Cities at g.d.o) or professional (Higher Education).

No Drupal Users Meeting for February

Start: 
2014-02-25 12:00 - 13:00 America/Chicago
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

The first part of next week looks like a busy one for people working on various aspects of the central Drupal platform at the University of Minnesota. Our originally-planned presenter will be dealing with on-site meetings with vendors, and a good number of our group will be as well.

With that in mind, I'm inclined to cancel the Drupal User Group meeting scheduled for this time slot. If there is interest, however, in organizing around a suggested topic, we do have 101 Walter reserved for use.

101 Walter Library, Twin Cities East Bank

Greetings, UMN Drupal folks!

Join us for our March meeting this Tuesday, the 26th. We will focus on using Drupal in the managed virtual server environment available through OIT. The 'swadm' environment brings some specific challenges, and those familiar with other Linux environments (like Debian/Ubuntu) will notice other differences. So bring your questions and knowledge to share. We'll have at least one server available with Drupal already up and running.

Shibboleth and Drupal at University of Massachusetts

Quite by accident this morning, I came across the following post on the University of Massachusetts Amherst Drupal Group page -- http://groups.drupal.org/node/273533.

It appears they had a workshop scheduled to discuss Drupal/Shibboleth. Unfortunately it was canceled but the fact that work is being done in this area at UMass piqued my interest.

I thought maybe someone may have a contact there or could make one to share ideas and progress on Shibboleth integration. Or perhaps this is old news?

Either way, I figured I'd share this with the group. Happy Holidays!
