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.

Drupal Camp Vancouver 2010 Planning has Started!

The call went out and today we held our first Drupal Camp Vancouver 2010 organizing meeting. Present were Chris Geoghegan, Vanessa Turke, Ryan Dempsey, Angus Pratt, Katy Laan, and myself (Dale McGladdery).

An aside, this first meeting was held in Surrey because most of the initial responders lived there. Then came a second wave of interest from the Vancouver side. Apologies to everyone who wanted to come but couldn't make it out. DCVan2010 is on the agenda at the October VanDUG meeting so everyone who wants to can get involved.

As in 2008, the planning group decided on a May camp in downtown Vancouver. The exact date will depend of venue availability. We're also going to stick with a Friday/Saturday format. We established criteria for what we want from a venue, like great WIFI and a space where people can informally socialize. The venue search is starting in earnest!

October 2009 Meeting: IA for Drupal - A User Based Approach

Start: 
2009-10-29 18:30 - 20:30 America/Vancouver
Organizers: 

Join us at 6:30pm on Thursday October 29, 2009 at Appnovation Technologies (note, different location this month) for the Vancouver League of Drupalers October meeting. This month's feature presentation: Information Architecture for Drupal - A User Based Approach with Vanessa Turke. Implementing a fresh design or new CMS without giving some significant thought to the organization of the actual content of the site can be a costly mistake – a new look or a new system is not a fix for a poorly-structured website with boring content! Vanessa discuss hows how some careful planning at the beginning of the process can help.

We'll also have a case study on the newly relaunched Vancouver Observer by Dave Egan and discuss doing a Vancouver Drupal Camp in 2010.

Date: Thursday October 29, 6:30pm
Location: Appnovation Technologies, L200-560 Beatty Street, Vancouver, BC [Map]
Cost: There is no charge and all are welcome
