• 2017 Michigan Drupal Party
    Hello Drupal folk of Michigan, We hope your year has been filled with Drupal goodness and would like to invite you all to celebrate a successful year of Drupal. Come join us on Thursday December, 21st at the Tech Brewery in Ann Arbor, MI from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. There will be pizza, beer, foosball, billiards, oh and Drupal. We'd like to thank the Tech Brewery ( https://techbrewery.org/ ) for hosting this event for us, for free! If you're looking for an affordable co-working place, we highly recommend the Tech Brewery. Many successful start ups have their roots at the Tech Brewery, including Duo Security and Quad Metrics. We don't have any presentations planned, just some social Drupal fun. If anyone has anything they'd like to present please let us know and we'll look to get the appropriate presentation equipment. Regards, Tyler Frankenstein & Zak Schlemmer

  • Veinticinco de Mayo with Drupal and Drinks
    What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than by announcing a new festive holiday, Veinticinco de Mayo!? Join us on Thursday the 25th for an evening of casual Michigan Drupal camaraderie with cerveza, sombreros optional. We will have a projector and screen available if anyone is feeling frisky and wants to present on DrupalCon highlights or a casual code and share, email us and we will update the topic list here. If nothing else, Tyler suggested a discussion topic for the event... >> I concur, good times indeed. Let's please have another meetup in 3 months. At that time, it'd be great to start discussions for a 2017 Michigan Drupal Camp, which was proposed to be held in Grand Rapids this year. Whatever the host city, we'll need boots on the ground there to make it happen. << ~Tyler Frankenstein @ the last meetup

  • Drupal Meetup - Year End Mixer
    It has been a little while, but we are on the calendar again for a Michigan Drupal Meetup with Ann Arbor Spark as our host. Brad Czerniak (https://www.commercialprogression.com/user/brad-czerniak) of Commercial Progression will be brining a short presentation on extending the webform module to do unconventional things: • Allow site users to make quizzes easily • Inject field content so it inter-mingles with form components • Make form fields trigger videos, and other uses of the 'extra' array • Create Views showing submission values from more than one form End of year celebratory libations (alcoholic & non-alcoholic) will be provided courtesy of Commercial Progression (https://www.commercialprogression.com). Plus everything that you have come to expect from a typical Drupal Meetup full of community networking opportunities. And a postscript introduction... My name is Shane Sevo (https://www.commercialprogression.com/user/shane) and you may have seen me logged as a member of this Meetup for some time, but with little engagement. I have recently switched my open source focus and gone all in with Drupal (http://www.commercialprogression.com/post/wordpress-joomla-and-drupal-why-i-jumped-ship-best-open-source-cms)! Do feel free to reach out to me (https://www.commercialprogression.com/user/shane) with any ideas concerning events and support of the local Michigan Drupal community.

  • Securing the Stack: Hardening Your Drupal Deployment
    I'm happy to announce our next meetup is all about securing your Drupal websites. There's been a lot of media recently about big websites being compromised (Washington Post, CNN, Zuckerberg's Facebook page) so now's the perfect time to think about your own websites. This meetup is being hosted by Duo Security (@duosec (https://twitter.com/duosec)) and will include a presentation by Mark Stanislav, Security Evangelist for Duo Security. Additional info below... --Alex Presentation Overview Running a blog or CMS-based web site is a big responsibility. For an organization, a single poorly secured web site can be the foothold an attacker needs to breach a network. If you run a small business, you could be putting your clients in danger. The challenges to add security to these deployments can often be confusing when trying to figure out what to secure and how to do it. This talk will go over a number of security enhancements that most administrators can make in minutes that collectively can add some much needed security hardening to your typical Drupal deployment. Mark will provide insights into why certain steps are needed and the realities of not following the guidance being given from someone who has not only had to secure web sites for years, but also break into them for his job. If you run Drupal and care about keeping your clients or organization secure, you'll want to catch this talk! About Mark Stanislav Mark Stanislav is the Security Evangelist for Duo Security, an Ann Arbor-based startup focused on two-factor authentication and mobile security. With a career spanning over a decade, Mark has worked within small business, academia, startup, and corporate environments, primarily focused on Linux architecture, information security, and web application development. Mark earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Networking & IT Administration and his Master of Science Degree in Technology Studies, focused on Information Assurance, both from Eastern Michigan University. Mark also holds his CISSP, Security+, Linux+, and CCSK certifications.
