Washington, DC Drupalers

This group is for everyone living in the DC metro area who's interested in Drupal. You can post here about anything relating to DC and Drupal, whether that's local job postings, events, or just a call out to talk shop over beers.

You can also find us in a couple of other places:

We have a great meetup every month where we get together to connect in person. The target audience is Drupal developers, users, and people who want to learn more about Drupal. We start the meetups with a round of very focused lightning talks that discuss real world solutions to existing problems, new work people have done, and Drupal news. Some of these talks are about code, and some are not. We do ask that all presenters talk on a level that everyone - including non-developers - can follow. After the talks, we chat over beer, and maybe play a few games of foosball.

We're open to ways to improve the meetups and this group, so speak up if you have ideas!

Nov 8 DrupalDC at Canvas is canceled

Hey folks,

We had a number of people point out to us that our normal meet up fell on Election Day. While initially, we didn't think this was a problem, I now want to give everyone an opportunity to do their civic duty.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and see you back in December.

Thanks,
Dave

Looking for a developer who has a bit of artistry and a bit of free time

Hi all!

Pleasure to be posting here for the first time. I've been scouring my networks for Drupal developers and been honestly surprised how few and far between they've been. Hopefully now I've landed in the right spot.

If you are someone who is interested in very ad-hoc paid work on a beautiful site (www.securenutrition.org) -- I'm talking maybe 10 days in a calendar year -- please, please do read on. It's also an opportunity to throw World Bank on your CV, if you're interested in that (or maybe it's more like selling out??)

Agency Directives – CMS/Application

Good afternoon all

My agency is looking to move our directives website to, we hope a web application. We need to move it to our current CMS but in the future we will like to host it in Drupal 8.

The site has about 15 pages and hundreds of pdf files that are the directives, procedures, certificates …. with their respective pending/old/new versions. We were wondering if someone can share their set up with their pros and cons, lesson learned and any recommendations. The current site is hosted right now at http://redirect.state.sbu/?url=http://www.nws.noaa.gov/directives/.
