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.
Docker promises us the ability to develop our Drupal sites on our local, and deploy to identical environments in staging and production.
An ideal setup would let us configure a new local environment in a matter of minutes, and automate testing and deployment.
Architecting applications using containers should enable us to deploy sites which can automatically scale to handle high peak traffic.
Djun will discuss about his experiences trying to realize these dreams, starting from the simplest examples.

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.Read more
