Drupal Meetup: Election Action Tools

Chris Torgalson and Colin Calnan from Raised Eyebrow Studios will be presenting at this months Drupal meetup on building election tools within Drupal.

With the BC Election just around the corner, there will be a need for election related web tools. One of most popular requests Raised Eyebrow receive relate to creating action tools; you know, the ones where you email your MP about a certain issue!

They have created a few tools in Drupal that do just that and will walk you through their uses. They have also integrated an MP lookup service and have an exciting election Candidate tool to announce.

Along with the Drupal tools they will introduce some other tools that could help with campaigns and outreach.

Lightning Talks

Attendees are invited to share their experience by giving a 2 to 4 minute presentation on any topic of interest to the Drupal community. If you want to use a laptop to show a website or control panel please be sure you have the necessary cable (vga) to connect to an overhead projector.

    Hi all, for those interested to learn more about Twilio I'm attempting to host a first meetup on February 13 - http://www.meetup.com/Twilio/Vancouver-CA/874352/. If anyone is interested in presenting/demoing or just discussing Twilio at the meetup then please let me know. For the first one I'm trying to guage interest in getting together and from there we can discuss what we'd like to do as a group.

    So if you're interested then please go and RSVP. And pass this on to anyone else you think might be interested.

    I've also fixed the Drupal Tropo/Twilio integration module that I was trying to demo.

    Simply visit http://apps.raisedeyebrow.com/drupal/callmymp, enter your phone number and postal code and your phone will ring to tell you who your MP is and try to connect you. Please try it out.

    Great meetup! It veered just a little off topic towards the end, but it's all good, I got a lot of the presentation. It was very information-heavy, touching on lots of topics. I'm glad I had Drupal experience and could keep up!
