Drupal.psu.edu highlights the use of the open-source Drupal CMS at Penn State, and serves as the online home of the Penn State Drupal Users Group (DUG), an association of developers, designers, and users who currently leverage the power of Drupal across Penn State.
Drupal.psu.edu is the home for all Drupal happenings at the university and this group is a good way to connect with other Drupal users about their projects. Join us and get involved in your local Drupal community!
Penn State University Drupal User Group Meeting
The PSU Drupal User Group meets on the third Tuesday of the month in W023 Pattee Library from 11am to 1pm.
Note: The February 21, 2017 meeting will be in W211A Pattee Library from 11am to 1pm.
During the meeting, we present and share ideas, implementation plans, current projects, web sites, code, roadblocks, successes, and answer questions about Drupal at all levels.
PSU DUG Co-working
At Penn State, many Drupal administrators and Drupal developers work in isolation without any Drupal peers in their work unit. The PSU-DUG has, since early 2016, addressed this by offering an opportunity for Drupalists to come together and work in a shared space. Co-working sessions are an opportunity to discuss in small groups problems that you're experiencing and determine how you might overcome them. Even if you don't have a problem that you're trying to overcome, it can sometimes be nice to work with your peers that can speak the same vocabulary. Note that while the times and location are relatively consistent (usually Thursdays, 11am-2pm in Pattee Library), attendance varies widely from week to week. Be sure to check in our general slack channel to ensure you don't miss a variance! For the schedule and location, check this page or join us on Slack.
Annually, the PSU-DUG also participates in conducting Drupal Camps. From 2011-2014, the Penn State Drupal Users Group hosted their own Drupal Camp. In 2015 and 2016, the Penn State Drupal Users Group participated with the Pittsburgh Drupal User Group in organizing Drupal Camp PA.
