August Wellington Drupal Meetup - beer, pizza, BYOD Composer!

Wellington meetups - Wed, 07/12/2017 - 18:14

Wellington Drupal Meetup

Back by popular request, the next meetup is going to involve more deep-dives into Composer. This knowledge is must-have for anyone who is serious about building and managing large Drupal 8 sites. We're going to pool our knowledge about composer, look at some uses of it (from updating Drupal to managing modules and configuration) and look at some presentation examples.

This is a BYOD event for anyone who wants to pro-actively learn more about composer during the presentations and group chats. Pro-tip: Install Composer locally BEFORE the meetup!

WHEN: 1st August, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

WHERE: Catalyst IT Level 3 (Level 6, 150 Willis St, Te Aro)

AGENDA:

Newbie spotlight - An optional opportunity for new people to the group to say a quick intro and tell us a bit about what you're doing with Drupal. Are you looking for work? Are any of the organisations at the meetups hiring? Are you short on Drupal buddies or looking for a hand with a project?

Drupal Job Opportunities - This is so if people want to attend just the first part of the meetup in pursuit of work / recruiting staff, they can do so shamelessly. Are you looking for a Drupal job? Do you need Drupal staff? This segment over the first 5mins of the event is for you.

Drupal Contribution & Sprints - Each week, we will discuss contributions currently being made to the Drupal community, who is doing it, and what we can all do to help. When is the next Drupal Sprint? Where is it being ran? How can you get involved? These questions will also be answered each month.

Module Highlight - This is a repeating part of our agenda that we will have during every meetup. It is where those of us who have modules we'd like to talk about take the stage tell us a bit about the module that they are currently in love with and what they've used it for. 

Composer - A session to share thoughts and know-how on composer, explore examples of it being used. BYOD if you'd like to break the ice with composer and start learning how to use it.

PIZZA - Provided by Sparks Interactive - cheers! Vege, gluten free available (if you have special dietary requirements, Please let us know in advance by emailing directly to alex@xequals.co.nz) 

Event Shout-Out - Quick opportunity for anyone to take the stage and share knowledge of any Wellington events relevant to the Drupal community. 

Composer continued

Case Study - Open call for anyone who wants to do a case study on a Drupal project they have recently done / are doing. 

Drupal Q & A - A repeating section if there is time to share questions and answers, providing support to each other and the wider community on good Drupal solutions architecture. This session really is the lifeblood of the meetups - come along and get your questions about Drupal answered. Useful for newbies and veterans alike to get peer feedback, solutions, insights and leads. 

REFRESHMENTS & SPONSORS: Beer and pizza are provided by the very lovely Sparks Interactive. Thanks Sparks! You guys are awesome! If only everyone else were as good at providing beer and pizza as you... you have a special place in our heart. 

VENUE: Thanks Catalyst IT! Without you guys, there is no meeting room - a sad thought indeed. So cheers to Catalyst for supporting the Wellington Drupal community, we all really appreciate it! :) 

ORGANISERS: Xequals organises and sponsors the monthly Drupal meetup. Chur Xequals! If you have topics you'd like to discuss or see discussed, please get in touch with alex@xequals.co.nz.

May Wellington Drupal Meetup - beer, pizza, 8ers gonna 8

Wellington meetups - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 16:50

Wellington Drupal Meetup

This year is all about Drupal 8, and this month is no exception.

Many of us love the improvements and power that D8 brings. It's fair to say that most of us are on that band-wagon now. However many of us also have encountered instabilities that limit what we can use it for. We're going to revisit where D8 is stable and where it's not, and discuss community strategies and approaches. Part of this could involve a chat about lending some support to do a targeted sprint or documentation clean-up as a combined Wellington effort.

We'll also be sharing more case studies, modules, and all the regular good stuff.

WHEN: 2nd May, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

WHERE: Catalyst IT Level 3 (Level 6, 150 Willis St, Te Aro)

AGENDA:

Newbie spotlight - An optional opportunity for new people to the group to say a quick intro and tell us a bit about what you're doing with Drupal. Are you looking for work? Are any of the organisations at the meetups hiring? Are you short on Drupal buddies or looking for a hand with a project?

Module Highlight - This is a repeating part of our agenda that we will have during every meetup. It is where those of us who have modules we'd like to talk about take the stage tell us a bit about the module that they are currently in love with and what they've used it for. 

8ers Gonna 8 - 8.3.x unknown unknowns. Is the documentation correct? Is D8 composer only now? What are the consequences for UI approaches such as installing and updating modules? The agenda item is going to cover the known unknowns and explore the unknown unknowns.

We'll also discuss community code sprints for 2017 and look at some planning around our annual contribution. This will also briefly cover drupal.org.nz and what we hope to do with it this year - such as expanding our resources section and better advertising NZ / Wellington as global centres of high quality Drupal services.

PIZZA - Provided by Sparks Interactive - cheers! Vege, gluten free available (if you have special dietary requirements, Please let us know in advance by emailing directly to alex@xequals.co.nz)
