We had such a great time at last week's Drupal Sprint Weekend that we're doing it again. Join us at Droplabs on Saturday, March 19, 2013, for another day of Drupal, patch reviews and sprints / hackathons on your favorite Drupal projects.

Those interested in attending this event remotely are welcome to join us via a Google+ Hangout. The hangout URL will be posted soon.

Afterward, we'll be going out for a Drupal After Dark with the teams that built the robots for Robot Combat League, the robot exosuit combat show on the Syfy network. Yeah, a day of Drupal and robots!

What's a "code sprint"?

Code sprints are organized events where attendees meet online or in person (and sometimes both) and work toward a shared goal.

Local area organizers have produced several code sprints in recent history, including sprints focused on building the SCALE conference website, resolving issues in the Drupal 7 issue queue and updating the Conference Organizing Distribution (COD) project to Drupal 7.

See https://drupal.org/node/247982 for more information.

What's the code sprint about?

Good question! There will be 2 separate themes at this event:

  • Members of the Greater Los Angeles Area Drupal Camp (GLADCamp) organizing team will be working on the GLADCamp website, adding features, fixing bugs, and adding content about the conference, including sponsorship levels, hotel information, and local attractions;
  • Droplabs will also provide a FREE mentored Drupal training using Build a Module videos focusing on Advanced Site Building. Just bring your laptop and a pair of headphones. A Droplabs staff member will set up you with a day pass.

Los Angeles Drupal Jobs Summit

  • Posted on: 14 January 2013

Do you own or help manage a company or organization that uses Drupal? Does your team depend on professional Drupal service providers in the Greater Los Angeles Area? Have you and your projects been affected by a shortage of Drupal development and theming talent?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then consider coming to our first-ever Drupal Jobs Summit from 7-9pm on Monday, January 28, 2013. There is no charge for this event. It is open to any and all companies and organizations who qualify, by:

  1. Hosting any Drupal meetups, trainings or other Drupal community events, including Frontend Drupal, High Performance Drupal, Downtown Los Angeles Drupal, LA Drupal, and so on;
  2. Sponsoring or exhibiting at any of the Los Angeles Drupal job fairs, including this month's Drupal Job Fair on Monday, January 28th.

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.

This is a roll-up-your-sleeves working meeting and we will be meeting one another (many for the first time) and discussing the following topics:

  • Building a healthy marketplace and business community 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.
