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.
Are you a Drupal guru? Do you want to use your skills to help some awesome non-profit organizations in developing and post-conflict areas to promote peace and human rights? Do you work with non-profit clients and would benefit from an awesome Drupal installation profile designed specifically for non-profits? Want to enjoy some free food, beer, DJ'ing and even hacker yoga while helping to change the world?Read more
Drupal, with its main power coming from its ability to manage content and its presentation, is an amazing platform for making websites - but sometimes our presentation layer becomes our show-stopper. Modern sites, nowadays, are not just static HTML with content, but also platforms for communicating with other devices and systems (such as mobile devices, other sites, gaming platforms, etc). Decoupling the front-end and back-end of a Drupal site allow us to create a "Headless Drupal".Read more
