    Noticed that shopkeepers want to talk to shopkeepers about things that don't work for us, sometimes over time and not solved by ambiguous instruction videos about software with hidden costs. Maybe a different meetup group for shopkeepers? Just a thought.

  • John R.

    About shopkeepers & Drupal. It would be great if someone could give step-by-step, unambiguous instructions to make it work. I'm happy to test.

    I've posted my slides on Drupal 8 UI Changes online here:

      I've updated each slide with a link to the main issue so you can read into the background of each decision.

    Thanks to all the organisers, presenters and the sponsors for another good meeting. D8 design and features are making Drupal more user-friendly and more powerful; a great combination to have. Devel module also good. Gary's table was a hub of very interesting and helpful discussions. To everyone that attended and made it all possible - many thanks.

    Really useful stuff - D8 UI very interesting, looks like I'll be chucking away contrib modules for module filter/admin toolbar/etc. Some great new features and the new folder structure makes sense, although upgrade path may be interesting.

    Devel module talk very useful (will there be any slides available for this one?). Table discussion also good (will definitely be getting on drupal ladder).

    Great meetup - pizza and beer was a bonus.

    Thanks to organisers for arranging all. Great presentations. Zombies going to be my main use for Devel, I fear...

    February 19, 2013

  • Rob D.

    Very friendly atmosphere. Great Presentations - on the direction towards Drupal 8 - the in place editing, Tour and merging of Panopoly-like features were very information. The Devel Presentation was also useful, particularly the performance profiling features in XFProf that plug into it. The table discussion was a productive exchange. The beer and pizza was welcome and appreciated. Thank you to all who made it possible and who joined in!
