Bellingham Drupal Users Group Meeting

We are now meeting at the Woods Coffee Flatiron. Note, we are not using the "meeting room" at the Flatiron, but the "big table", which is reserved for us.

The following activities are planned:

- coffee and other treats

- climbing the Drupal Ladder together

- discussing our Drupal projects

This is a group for all Drupallers and interested non-Drupallers. If you haven't used Drupal yet, come anyway and pepper us with questions. We are a peer to peer tech support group, a fan club, and a cheering squad for all your Drupal explorations.

If you're not familiar with Drupal, you might want to start here.

    Couple of thoughts about the venue...
    1. If there were a room available in Fairhaven College, the parking might not be such an obstacle as it is on the campus proper. I'm not sure how full the C lot gets on Monday evenings but the College is pretty close by it.

    2. We are assuming that driving to Ferndale to use the public library would be a hassle for Bellinghamsters but maybe we should get an official vote on that. Is it too far out of the way?

      1) I think it's worthwhile to make an effort to be convenient to as many as possible.

      Whoops. Don't hit return twice in this field. Sorry.
      2) I agree with warren that we should have a majority decision.
      3) I agree with Jennifer that we could try out various venues.
      4) While we've sort of dismissed the Food Coop's building because we can't reserve a regularly scheduled time once a month, maybe we could be a little more agile and reserve the same time every month as much as possible and shift when we need to. That is still better than showing up and getting locked out. We'd just have to keep our ears open for schedule changes. How much in advance could we reserve for a particular month?

    As promised. Installing Drupal with MAMP from Drupalize.me: http://drupalize.me/videos/inst...­

    Installing Drupal with WAMP by Learn by the Drop:

    This WAMP one is a little outdated but the latest WAMP server fully supports PHP 5.3 which means full support for Drupal 7.

    If anyone is using Linux, there is a pretty well documented LAMP tutorial here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/6...­

    Great meetup everyone. I believe 14 people were there. I will try to post instructions for setting up WAMP or MAMP tomorrow.

    I was really looking forward to attending, but I've got a ton of school work to do after all. Hope to make it to a meeting next month!

      Good luck with the school work Amy.

    Hi everyone, please remember to bring your laptop if you are interested in working on climbing the Drupal Ladder. The first rung is installing a Drupal instance locally, and then we can move onto git basics either in this meeting or the next. It would be fun to go through a D7 install and then encourage everyone to install D8 and D6 as well for practice. I don't have much experience with the Acquia Dev VM, but can lend advice to those using a WAMP/MAMP/Linux setup. For git, this is a link for the slides a colleague and I presented at PNWDS on git basics. https://docs.google.com/presenta...­

    Excited to see you all at Woods!

      Hi Warren, I'll be posting about that today!
