DrupalCamp Bristol 2015

We are hoping to start up the discussion around a Drupal Camp for Bristol and the West at the next social this Wednesday.

This post is just a holding place for initial subsequent comments, links, etc. I will do my best to take some notes from the meetup and post them here.

I guess rough planned timings, possible venues etc. will be the first thoughts, it looks like some thought has already started on this :)

Watch this space.....

SWDUG Autumn 2014 Meetup

Does anyone have any preference when we want to do the next meetup?

I'd suggest November as December is likely to be busy with Christmas parties etc.

A Tuesday would be good again, I think, to not conflict with DevOps Cardiff, PHPSW or Drupal Bristol which are all on Wednesdays.

Update: I went ahead and created an event at https://groups.drupal.org/node/447708.

SWDUG - thanks for coming!

Hello!

Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who came along on Tuesday August 19th . It really was fantastic to see some new faces, and great to catch up with everyone I already know. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did.

Talking after the event, it was pointed out to me that there was one important question that we didn't ask or answer properly, that we probably should have:

What do you hope to gain from attending the SWDUG meetups?

Tour De Drupal [Ireland to Amsterdam via UK]

So some people are planning to cycle to Amsterdam for Drupalcon.
https://twitter.com/TourDeDrupal
It's perhaps a little far to cycle all the way from the West of Ireland to Amsterdam, but Gavin is going to give it a shot.
I'm going to cheat just a little, and do the trip with a combination of train and bike. I plan to make my way across England and Wales over 3 days, with a good few train sections thrown in for good measure. We'll meet up somewhere before the ferry at Harwich, and hopefully meet the bigger Tour De Drupal gang along the way too.

SWDUG - August Meetup - 19th August 2014

Start: 
2014-08-19 18:00 - 21:00 Europe/London
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

August meetup!

The first of our meet ups at a new venue - Founders Hub in the centre of Cardiff is a dedicated co-working, learning and meet up space, created just for the likes of us. We'll be in good company as we'll be rubbing shoulders with many other tech meet ups in the city (Unified Diff, DevOps Cardiff and many more all have their home here).

We're not hiring a bar for this one (the numbers probably won't justify it), so if you want a drink, you're best off bringing something along. We'll also see if we can get a pizza sponsor for the night.

SWDUG August meetup - request for feedback on dates

Hi all,

anyone who was interested in coming along and had a preference for dates, I've been offered any weekday evening between the 11th and 22nd of August. Please could I hear back soon (by this Friday would be good) with preferred days/times if at all possible - especially if you were hoping to contribute something?

We have a couple of possible speakers in the wings, and a fantastic future venue at FoHub in the city centre. It'd be good to see more people come along.

Thoughts on SWDUG

I thought that I'd start this thread because I've been watching the Drupal Association webinar and the Talking Drupal podcast about Drupal meetups and I was wondering what people's thoughts were about the SWDUG meetups, and why the interest seems to tail off after a few meetups. Is it an issue with the day and/or time, venue, content?

SWDUG Meetup - 14th August 2013, in Cardiff

Start: 
2013-08-14 18:00 - 21:00 Europe/London
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

Just had confirmation through that we're okay to have another meetup on August 14th (and every second Wednesday thereafter).

Since there hasn't been a huge discussion, I'm going to leave comments open for any suggested talks, or requests for anything to be looked at. I'll bring a laptop along, and could do something on using Vagrant for your dev environment, maybe. But perhaps some folks might want to talk about actual Drupal ;-)

So once again, 6pm (or as soon as you can make it) August 14th, at The Owain Glyn Dwr in Cardiff. (http://www.theowainglyndwr.co.uk/find-us/)
