Introducing the Drupal Jobs Summit

The sponsor benefits have just been updated to include tickets to the Drupal Jobs Summit later in the evening from 7-9pm:

   http://droplabs.net/events/2013/01/28/los-angeles-drupal-jobs-summit

The jobs summit is a roll-up-your-sleeves working meeting for companies and organizations who use and depend on Drupal, as well as a healthy business community and marketplace. We'll be meeting one another (many for the first time) and discussing the following topics:

  • Building a healthy marketplace of colleagues and potential partners;
  • Getting the most out of our recruiting and marketing dollar;
  • What we're doing now to staff up, from local recruiting and in-house training to outsourcing and hiring out-of-town or overseas;
  • Identifying the skills, job titles and qualifications of desirable candidates, employees and vendors;
  • Workshops, trainings and other programs that most or all of us can get behind in order to solve our business needs.

We'll have an open bar and cocktails will be served. It is also a private event. Those who qualify to attend include sponsors of any of the Drupal job fairs we've had, and any companies and organizations who host Drupal meetups, trainings or other Drupal community events.

Hosting a meetup at your office qualifies you for this event. Buying pizza at a meetup, while appreciated, does not. If you do not meet the above qualifications, contact us at jobs-jan28summit [at] droplabs [dot] net with a request to attend.

Los Angeles Drupal Job Fair

Are you a freelancer or service provider who's looking for Drupal work? Do you represent a company or organization that's looking for Drupal talent? Come and make new friends and turn new connections into long-term relationships at the next Los Angeles Drupal Job Fair from 5-7pm on Monday, January 28, 2013.

This event is FREE for individual job seekers and is being hosted by Droplabs, a collaborative coworking space, classroom and hackerspace in Downtown Los Angeles. In addition to being the venue of the only Drupal job fairs ever in Los Angeles in June, 2011, and November, 2011, Droplabs hosts the majority of Drupal activity, from meetups, topic-based summits and code sprints to free workshops, tutoring sessions and paid trainings, in the Greater Los Angeles Area.

As a longtime member of the Drupal community who had worked remotely in development positions for both Drupal shops and organizations that leveraged Drupal, I was very interested in getting into an office and spending my days with other like-minded teammates in the Los Angeles area. The Droplabs job fair provided a fantastic opportunity for me to explore the available Drupal positions in and around the city in a way that no other event provided. I left the job fair having met many good employers and received multiple offers, one of which I accepted, within the coming weeks.

A special note of thanks can be made to the Droplabs organizers of the job fair. It was obvious their intentions were in line with serving the greater good of the community. I thank Droplabs and their continued effort in improving the presence of Drupal in Los Angeles with events Iike these, and hope many job seekers can have as much success as I have!

Installation Profiles as an "Everything in Code" Development Process

It seems everyone is talking about using Features for "everything in code" development, but what about installation profiles? In this presentation at the Downtown LA Drupal meetup at Droplabs on October 18, 2011, Victor Kane presents how this oft-overlooked part of Drupal core is available to us all and provides the tools needed for successful, repeatable development and deployment.

Victor Kane (@victorkane) is an Drupal developer and trainer with deep roots in the Los Angeles Drupal community. He is the author of Leveraging Drupal: Getting Your Site Done Right. This presentation is a continuation of his articles on the subject at http://awebfactory.com.ar/node/448 and http://awebfactory.com.ar/node/458
