This month we're going to do an open discussion around Drupal 8 site building and theming. If you have questions, a site you're getting ready to build, tips, sites to show off, resources you've found helpful, or anything else related to setting up and theming a Drupal 8 site bring them to the meetup.
This month I thought we would look at the basics of Drupal 8 module development and the Drupal Console and other development tools available for Drupal 8.
If you have any favorite development tools/techniques for Drupal 8 be sure to bring them as well as any questions (Drupal 8 or otherwise).
This month Brian Lewis will be back to finish what he started last time. (But without the frog voice, and constant coughing) :)
He’ll start with an existing Drupal 8 site (built with Composer) and use Git, Drush and Configuration management to demonstrate a typical workflow of moving configuration from a local development environment to staging and/or production.
He’s promised to keep it short and sweet this time to leave plenty of time for questions, comments and hanging out.
This month Brian Lewis will be demonstrating some of the modern tools and techniques available to Drupal site-builders that have replaced and/or superseded the old standards like FTP.
He'll cover Composer, Drush, Git, Configuration Management and how they all work together to make your Drupal 8 site development and management process faster, more efficient, and less error prone.
Brian runs Modules Unraveled (a Drupal tutorial site) and hosts the Modules Unraveled Podcast which is all about Drupal and Drupal-related topics.
We are back for 2016!
We will be talking about Drupal 8 theming this month. Chad Peppers will be sharing his experience with a recent Drupal 8 theme build but be sure to bring your own experiences, example, question, etc.
As alway, we'll have plenty of time for Q&A, etc. too.
Last official meetup of 2015!
The topic for this month is Drupal 8 Theming. Scott will get us started with some things he's learned as he gets ready for a couple of official client builds on Drupal 8 but if you've learned anything or have any questions around D8 theming, this is the meetup for you.
We are trying out the O'Reilly Partner Program, which will provide a variety of discounts and free resources for members. The first is a standing discount on books and videos.

Jeff Petersen is going to give a talk on Drupal 8 including:
• Setting up a Vagrant box for development
• Using Composer
• Installing Symfony
• Creating a Symfony project
• Creating a Drupal module
We're going to see how Drupal 8 uses Symfony and how to structure our Drupal 8 projects.
As always we'll have plenty of time for questions and any topics you'd like to discuss.
Remember - This is a Monday Meetup as opposed to our normal Tuesday meeting day. If you show up on Tuesday not only will you miss the meetup you'll be very lonely.
The topic for this meetup will be the WYSIWYG editor and improving the content author's experience. I'll give an overview of how I like to set things up but I'm hoping everyone will bring their favorite tweaks, best practices, and additional modules they like to use to make authoring content easier.
As always we'll have plenty of time for open discussion and Q&A so be sure to bring your ideas and questions.
