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

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

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.

Vancouver goes to DrupalCon DC 2009

So, I know this is ridiculously early, and yet at the same time all the early bird tickets are basically sold out.

I was asked to propose a session for DrupalCon DC 2009 to help launch the website -- it's Practical Semantic Web and Why You Should Care (aside: Jim Pick is kicking off Semantic Vancouver, event on Upcoming).

I missed Hungary (my first one I missed ever!) and I really would like to go to DC.
