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.

User group meeting

Heard about Component Driven Design, but aren't really sure what the big deal is? This talk is for you! Developers and Themers alike can benefit from using components in their workflow. Much like how Drupal uses modules to separate and reuse distinct code patterns, components allow us to do something similar for the front-end. Component Driven Theming is Component Drive Design meets Drupal!

In this Talk we’ll be Covering

  • What components are
  • Why we use components
  • Building a component library / styleguide

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 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 developer and designer | Checkout

Employment type: 

Need a (really) strong and efficient programmer to build me a site similar to in scope, look/feel and functionality but for hotels.

I'm looking for someone who can handle the full development of the website: Design, CSS/HTML, PHP and Drupal integration. Strong PHP skills are absolutely required.

At this stage, I'm more just concerned with having it built solidly and to spec - the design is secondary.

My budget is $500-650 for this project.

If you're interested, please email me with your phone number, sample work and any questions you may have.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Designer | Laird Associates

Employment type: 

I am looking for design and maintenance assistance with my personal drupal site ( I am an author and teacher of creativity, and will be releasing a new book in the fall (as well as launching a new creativity program). This new book project requires a redesign of the front page of the site (which will be a modification of the acquia marina theme), an upgrade from the current drupal 5 to drupal 6, some css color customizations, and some work with blocks for book ordering, program registration, etc. This is a small project but might be of interest to a designer who wants to make connections to the world of publishing, social services, and the wider creative arts community.

I have good knowledge of drupal and have maintained my own site in drupal for about 6 years. The assistance I require involves css, a bit of php, and front page development. And, of course, I would want to "help" with the process of the redesign. A drupal 6 test site is already set up with the correct theme and modules (but not front page development).

If you are interested in this project, feel free to drop me a line:

Need help with Views / Flash integration


I have a small job for any Drupal developer with time to help. I simply need to integrate a Drupal view (already built) with a Flash element (also already built). Flash is already reading data from an xml file, so perhaps exporting the view to xml on page load would do the trick. Or perhaps services/AMFPHP.

Note, I'm not looking for advice on how to do this myself this time around as I'm swamped with other things. I'm looking for someone who can take this task off my hands, I'll pay for your time.
