Next meetup

So, there was a bit of chat last night about what we should do at the next meetup, now we all know each other and everyone knows what a Drupal is. I reckon the best way forward is if anyone who reckons they could do a talk puts themselves forward with some suggestions, or anyone who'd like a talk on a specific thing puts the topic forward and we'll see if anyone wants to cover it.

So, I'd be happy to offer a talk on Apache Solr (A better search engine that works with Drupal), Drupal Commerce or Making Drupal run fast. Shout if they interest you, or you've got something else in mind.

Please help me with theming Drupal

Hi all, is there anyone in the Swansea area that can meet up to help me out with some theming? I need to working out the following:

how to design headers and footers
how to create custom menus
how to create new regions

I have experience of html, photoshop and basic drupal.
I am not a total noob (but I'm pretty close!)

here is a site I have started putting together for my current employer: www.alphasafetysolutions.co.uk

My boss would like me to maintain the site, and perhaps change it around a bit.

Can anyone help me out? Perhaps I can offer you some free training? :)

Meetups?

Has anyone had any further thoughts about if we're going to start the SWDUG meetups again, and if so, where?

South Wales Meetups in the future?

Since we're having fewer and fewer people turn out for meetups in Cardiff lately, I was thinking of changing the format slightly. I'm not sure if it's that we're not really exploring enough Drupal, or whether the audience down this way wants something different entirely, but I've had some ideas and I thought I'd float them here.

In the future I think we could:

  • Change the location so there's a more organised 'feel' to the whole thing. Utilising some better media for presenting might give more focus on properly exploring topics.

I can't believe it's not summer! (October meetup)

Start: 
2011-10-11 18:00 - 21:00 Europe/London
Organizers: 
Event type: 
User group meeting

It's that time of month again (!!) - and I can't believe how quickly these come around..

So we'll hold another Drupal meetup, get some food in and maybe learn something about something Drupal related. Last time was pretty sparse, but that allowed us to go through git in great detail with shonk. This time I think I'd welcome someone else showing something off, maybe? Or a quick tour of Drupal Commerce, and how it works?

You guys decide!

Event type: 
User group meeting

Hi all,

so we've completely forgotten to advertise a meetup, and there's one happening in Bristol on Wednesday night also, but for those in or near Cardiff, we're still having a meetup, assuming anyone turns up!

I think we're either going to look at Drupal Commerce or git - depending on which way we get swayed by the populace. Usual place - chez SubHub. Reply if you need directions ;-)

Event type: 
User group meeting

Whoops! That crept up on us!

Let's have another meetup, at SubHub HQ, with food again.

I'm proposing a session on using Git as a VCS for maintaining production sites, managing a testing workflow, and for module development. I haven't done a lot of contrib module development, so I might be guessing about that bit.

Also, Chris Cohen of Tigerfish Interactive will be our guest speaker, giving tips on obedience training for dogs. ;-)

How did that sneak up? I bet you're all away on Holidays anyway.

So yes - a July meetup, in Cardiff Bay, with the folks from SubHub, and whomsoever else would like to join in. As usual, we'll lay on some pizza (or maybe something else?) you bring yourselves along. We can while away the hours talking about Drupal and what we'd all like to achieve with it, we could do a problem workshop, we could pick a topic to explore. Whatever takes your fancy, really :-)
