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.

Use one compound field or many fields, which is the good practice?

I got a problem when developing a compound field (Drupal 6, cck 2). It has an Imagefiled, a few textarea/textfield/checkboxes, etc.

I realize that I must allow users to upload multiple images. Unfortunately, the compound field as an entire field can be set to allow "unlimited" number of values , but not the individual field (the image field) in the compound field. I step into module files and database and did some research, and found it is hard to achieve this by using "Drupal Way".

Drupal-focused Work Space Coop

While on our way to the Pacific North West Summit Ben, Steve and I had a discussion re: the possibility of creating a Drupal-focused work space coop in Vancouver. I talked to some people at the conference about it too and no one told me it was a dumb idea (or were they just polite?). So, I am interested in opening a discussion on the topic to a wider audience and see if would be something desirable and feasible.

What would be this workspace?

Hosting presentation - what would be of interest?

I've been tapped by Dale to put together a presentation on hosting for a future meeting. I'm wondering what aspects of hosting people would be interested in? I'd also like to know whether you would prefer a brief discussion over a wider range of hosting related topics, or an in depth discussion on one or two particular topics?

Here are some ideas I've come up with, please don't let them limit your suggestions:

  • Shared vs VPS vs Dedicated vs Cloud - How to decide where your site belongs?
  • VPS set-up and basic tuning
