May 2014 SCUG Meetup

Drupal 8. Want to learn what's in Drupal 8? Want a hands on experience? Want to get up to speed before going to DrupalCon Austin? (More on this later.)

We are all going to do a Drupal 8 installation and share our learnings. What's new? What's different? What's changed? How are we going to learn all of this?

No need to do anything before the meeting. 

• If you'd like to install a local copy of Drupal 8 on your laptop, great:

• If you'd like to spin up a Drupal 8 installation, you can do it at the meeting from here:

If you'd like to just come and watch others slosh around (and laugh), it should be entertaining.

Location. Sorry, we lost our game room. We're back at the Old Colorado City Library. A great location, but no foosball or beer.

Pre-meetup. BUT... If you'd like to have dinner and a beer, meet us at Thunder and Buttons at 5:30 on. 

June meeting. The idea of this meeting came from the folks going to DrupalCon. They thought they had better touch Drupal 8 before going to see presentations on D8.

Everyone from our group going to DrupalCon will talk about the best (and possibly the worst) from DrupalCon Austin. This promises to be extremely valuable for anyone using Drupal. 

We alternate between Tuesdays and Wednesdays. June's meeting is supposed to be Tuesday, June 10. However, we don't have a venue available on Tuesdays. If we can't find a venue available, we will meet at the library on Wednesday, June 11.

    So, does this mean that configurations are stored in the DB until exported? If so, does that mean that you have to export your config files to yml files before committing to git?

    Thanks Jerad. That clears up a lot of questions. I think their proposed solution is solid. I like that the files aren't there, tempting us to hack things that shouldn't be hacked, since there is no mechanism to make sure the rest of the system is aware of the change

    Regarding the problem we were seeing last night where yaml files were not in the config_ dir:

    Bummer, I'm not going to be able to make it. Changed my rsvp. Have a good time with D8!

    Drush 7 is required to work with D8: I completely hosed my installation of Drush in trying to upgrade. Beware.

    If you want to install Drupal 8 on your local machine, you can avoid some of the time-wasting that I had in getting D8 running on Ubuntu. I had several false starts...

    I got the code from the git repository - - Then, I found the instructions here: No joy.

    If you have Drush installed, try drush dl drupal-8 --destination= (I never got the --destination= parameter to work. If you do, please let me know how you did it.)

    Still no joy. Then, I realized that D8 required php 5.4.something and I'm running php 5.3.something. I upgraded and, finally, joy.

    If you're running on a different platform, bring your installation experience.
