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.

Drupal Meetup: Happiness for All - Building to be Reusable

SteveK's picture

Start: 
2014-04-24 18:30 - 20:00 America/Vancouver
Organizers: 

When taking on a web project, we want all people involved to feel happy with the project, from the client, sales, project managers, all the way to the developer. In a lot of cases the discovery and development process starts fresh for each project, and with a lot of project specific details. This makes each project a lot of work to build out. We too often start planning out the project, looking at the specific content types, or pages, with too much detail - missing the similarities of the different pieces of content.

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.

Contrib upgrade sprint #D7CX

Start: 
2009-10-17 09:00 - 2009-10-18 23:55 America/Vancouver
Organizers:

Drupal 7 is going to be frozen on September 1. Past that, we will fix focus on bugfixing and porting contributed modules. The so-called D7CX movement wants to see as many contributed modules as possible be ready by the time Drupal 7.0 is released. NowPublic fully supports this movement and to further it, we will hold a contrib upgrade sprint in the NowPublic offices in Vancouver, BC (Seymour 576) on the October 17-18 weekend. As usual, we provide wifi, power, pizza, drinks, chocolate and Hungarian pancakes (Damien Tournoud asked for them). Come by, it will be awesome.

Are You Looking for Community Visibility? - I Need Help

Are you looking for a way to make you or your company more visible in the Drupal community? Or a way to network with other Drupalers? Or simply a way to give back to the community that doesn't involve writing code.

I'm looking for help with the Vancouver Drupal User Group, and helping the local Drupal community could help yourself!

Don't worry, the work isn't hard, and I'm not planning on disappearing. So why this call for help? It's a combination of meeting organization not being as much fun as it was, other volunteer projects I want to take on, and burn-out. And let's face it, new blood always brings in new perspectives. I look forward to someone with a different set of contacts bringing in people I could never think of.

If you're interested or have questions, please drop me a line via the contact form: http://groups.drupal.org/user/171/contact

Pacific Northwest Drupal Summit

Start: 
2009-10-24 10:00 - 2009-10-25 05:00 America/Los_Angeles
Organizers: 

I am helping to plan a Drupal Event in late October here in Seattle. This event will be a bit different from Drupal camps as we have done them here in Seattle in the past. The focus will be more on folks already in the "Drupal Ecosystem", people who spend much of their time designing, configuring and engineering Drupal. We will not have a focus on the "beginner" track as we have had in the past, rather we will be having a separate event a few weeks earlier to reach out to those checking out the Drupal Ecosystem.

July 2009 Meeting

I don't have anything formal in the works, but RockSoup (aka Jared) is coming up for a visit and has a very cool sounding Drupal community thing he'd like to discuss. Here's a teaser (I've paraphrased a little):

I am planning a Drupal Event in late October here in Seattle more like a regional DrupalCon than a DrupalCamp. The focus will be more on folks already in the "Drupal Ecosystem", people who spend much of their time designing, configuring and engineering Drupal. We will not have a focus on the "beginner" track as we have had in the past.

Let's all get together to hear what he has to say and catch up on all the local Drupal gossip that's fit to discuss.

Date: Thursday July 23, 6:30pm
Location: The Irish Heather, 210 Carrall Street in Gastown. [Map]
Cost: What ever you eat and drink.

Jared has some flexibility in his schedule, if Thursday July 30th works better for more people please speak up quickly and we can move the day. Likewise, if someone has an alternative location they think will work better than the Heather, please speak up. Is there a Gastown restaurant with a large dining area that might work? What's the Cambie like at 6:30?
