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.

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.
