Want to have a say in how OSU Drupal works and be part of a fun, vibrant community?
If so, then come visit us at the OSU Community meetings, every other month on the second Tuesday of the month, from 2:00 to 4:00.
Our next meeting is:
Agenda - Drupal Community August 8, 2017
Intros/icebreaker 5-10 - Kegan
First site or web thing you made/edited (How did you get involved with the web?)
Web Services Updates 10-15 - Michael
Web Services moving to two places: Kidder basement and Gilkey 106.
Looking at moving sometime during fall term.
Localist Project Kickoff
3rd party software that replaces calendar.o.e
Calendar owners at OSU are getting an email about the project kickoff today.
Drupal 8/WAMS project update
On hold as D6 burndown project wraps up. Ramping back up in September
Module development still slooooooow.
A cool way to visualize what's WS is working through right now
Marketing Updates: Kegan 10-15
Mauricio demo'd. URL is http://campusmap.dev.acquia.cws.oregonstate.edu/
Mobile first development, overlays include gender inclusive restrooms, emergency light phones, and dining options.
Desktop has a similar layout except overlay option is open.
Aug 20 - will be released side by side with campus map
Waiting on: layer for parking, other data that will be maintained.
Cool because it serves data back to API. Photos and alternate names are hosted in Drupal.
Mail:to How-to - Matthew
Why we don't do it: harvested in a second, bots can get around attempts to mask (Person (at) oregonstate.edu)
Noted that calendar still shows masked email. New calendar will no longer have that.
What to do instead
Considerations/gotchas (vacation response)
Non-osu account email
Fontawesome Refresher - Michael
Allows you to quickly and easily insert icons.
Has classes you can apply to make bigger (ie. icon-4x)
Don't use it for bulleted lists. Drupal doesn't like that and you have to use a bunch of CSS to make it work.
You can stack items?!?!
Why is using Fontawesome better than uploading a photo? No worry about ugh uploading, compression or performance!
Why do we use Bootstrap 2 - ensures backwards compatibility. When we move to Drupal 8 we'll adopt Bootstrap 4.
Best practices: icons with text so screen readers can see.
Web Aim Training Event - Mauricio
August 17 8:30-4:30. LINC 100. There will be food! And people from other Oregon universities.
Topics from the community (10 minutes)
