During the past few CharDUG (Charlotte Drupal User Group) meetings, I realized that we have a real need to help our existing Charlotte area Drupalers using Drupal 7 to move on to Drupal 8. There is also a huge opportunity to train those completely new to web development and Drupall. Out of some recent conversations, I have put together a training series that will span the next 6 months and become the focus for each of our monthly meetings on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.
The CharDUG Drupal 8 Training Series is a comprehensive set of training workshops to get attendees up to speed with all aspects of Drupal 8. Whether you are brand new to Drupal, focused on content management, a frontend or backend developer, or devops engineer, this series contains what you will need to utilize Drupal 8 to its potential.
I had a great time presenting on GDPR at DrupalCon Nashville with Dawn Aly. The presentation had a lot of community interest leading up start time. It was great to have great discussions during and following the talk, sharing attendee experience and expertise around GDPR and privacy.
If you have questions about GDPR and your website, don't hesitate to reach out to us at Mediacurrent. See the video from our presentation below.
I remember hearing that homebrew/php was going to be deprecated and migrated to homebrew/core, but I forgot somewhere along the way until I started to update my Brew setup last week. I received a few issues with the automatic homebred-php migration. I am not positive, but I think it had to do with the fact that I had also installed php71-mcrypt. After doing some research, realized that php-mcrypt and other extensions that were optional with homebrew/php are included in the homebrew/core version of PHP.
After two successful Charlotte Drupal Drive-in events in 2014 and 2015, the Charlotte Drupal User Group (CharDUG) is bringing it back on March 3rd, 2018. The format of the event is unconference style, allowing for a relaxed atmosphere where beginner and seasoned Drupalers alike are able discuss their projects, ideas, and ask questions.
Whether you want to discuss your projects with others, have an impromptu talk you would like to give, or a polished slide-deck presentation, you will be given the chance to pitch your idea(s). Once the pitches are made, every attendee will get to vote on the ones they find most interesting. This setup makes the event informal, the schedule fluid, and the topics dynamic. Most of all we have a lot of fun!
