Vancouver

Welcome to VANDUG!

The Vancouver Drupal Users Group is the local meeting place for Greater Vancouver people interested in Drupal. We were formerly known as the Vancouver League of Drupalers, but that's a long story. We generally meet once a month (typically the 4th Thursday) on a variety of topics, both technical and non-technical. There is no cost to join the group or attend our monthly meetings.

We have a sister group in the Lower Mainland, the Surrey Drupal Users Group that meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month. Many people are members of both groups.

Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Heard about Component Driven Design, but aren't really sure what the big deal is? This talk is for you! Developers and Themers alike can benefit from using components in their workflow. Much like how Drupal uses modules to separate and reuse distinct code patterns, components allow us to do something similar for the front-end. Component Driven Theming is Component Drive Design meets Drupal!

In this Talk we’ll be Covering

  • What components are
  • Why we use components
  • Building a component library / styleguide
  • Bringing it all together in Drupal

Hey all -

Just another PSA here, to let everyone know there's now a Twitter account set up if you want to follow for meetup reminders, etc. at http://twitter.com/vandug. The group admins all have access to the password, and if one of us gets fancy, we'll set up some kind of hashtag retweeter system.

Drupal Meetup: Scaling Drupal with Docker

Start: 
2016-10-27 18:30 - 20:00 America/Vancouver
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Docker promises us the ability to develop our Drupal sites on our local, and deploy to identical environments in staging and production.

An ideal setup would let us configure a new local environment in a matter of minutes, and automate testing and deployment.

Architecting applications using containers should enable us to deploy sites which can automatically scale to handle high peak traffic.

Djun will discuss about his experiences trying to realize these dreams, starting from the simplest examples.

Drupal 8 Accessibility and Why We Care About It

Start: 
2016-08-04 06:30 America/Vancouver
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Accessibility in Drupal 8 has come a long way since Drupal 7. Drupal 8 has added extensive support for accessibility in Core. From small changes like font size and colour contrast, to large changes like WAI-ARIA in core, Drupal 8 will make it easier to build an accessible site. For anyone trying to make a barrier-free website, it’s important to understand the new features and how each can be used.

Accessibility features reviewed will include:

WAI-ARIAHTML5 and Improved SemanticsColour Contrast and Low VisionAlt Tags and DefaultsW3C's ATAGTablesErrors
