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.

Twitter and IRC

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.

LinuxFest Northwest 2016 is coming up in April, and there will be two talks on Drupal there:

2) http://linuxfestnorthwest.org/2016/sessions/drupal-8-build-something-ama...

It'd be great to also get a Drupal booth in the Expo hall. I'm reaching out to the DA to see if we can get some support with signage, etc.

Is there interest in attending and taking a shift at the Drupal Booth? We need to know by Monday, Feb 29th.

Drupal Meetup: Introduction to Drupal 8 Module Development

Start: 
2016-02-25 18:30 - 20:00 America/Vancouver
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

We will be learning about how dependency injection works in Drupal 8, and how to create and use our own services in the Service Container. We'll build a small module that provides a service and uses it to create a page in Drupal. In the process we'll look at PSR-4 namespaces, and extending core Drupal classes. Doug was heavily indebted to Drupalize.Me, whose tutorials on these subjects were responsible for many 'Aha!' moments while he was learning Drupal 8.

Drupal Meetup: Multi-headed Drupal, an alternative

Start: 
2016-01-28 18:30 UTC
Event type: 
User group meeting

Managing many closely related websites, or sites subdivided in a plurality of rich, self-affirming sections, is a complex problem. Whether it’s a company with multiple departments or a newspaper with content curated for different regions, this issue has powerful implications at the content architecture, design and development levels.

Typical solutions in Drupal have been threefold: domain access module; multisite configuration; organic groups. Combinatory solutions are also possible. All bring advantages but also considerable caveats.
