For me the the Drupal community is amazing, it’s always felt like a family, one you can rely on to help and support you. It’s time for a call to arms, people need to support their local and regional Drupal user groups and events. A lot of these events are volunteer run, it takes time and energy to run meetup after meetup and big events. The people that organise and run these events are quite something, 9 to 5 days don’t exist for them. So this is where you come in, it’s easy to help out: Volunteering - everyone needs...
I’m proud to announce Drupal Sprints Manchester (UK). Last year at Drupal Camp NW I spoke with various other northern Drupalers and decided that we should get together and attempt to emulate Drupal Sprints London. The format is simple, Drupal developers / themers / builders get to together and work on Drupal core and contrib. My aim is to provide a space where people can get together and get stuck in working on Drupal and giving back to the community in the form of code, all that’s required is a laptop with an development stack and your brain.

Since I’m commuting a lot more to Manchester I figured I’d start downloading more music podcasts to listen to on the train.
Here are the ones I’ve found so far:

Bulb - Into The Deep - Sound Cloud
Hospital Records - iTunes
John B Podcast - Sound Cloud
Chillstep Works by Ideal_Noise - Sound Cloud
If you have any recommendations then let me know in the comments.
Starting at a new company is always a daunting prospect, you’re never quite sure what to expect. When I started at CTI I had no choice but to hit the ground running.

I’m currently project lead on a very interesting project that’s technically challenging. It’s great to be working with some pretty amazing developers and freelancers to build this project and see it come...
This has always bugged me, you can’t easily download Drupal to your current directory using drush. After a quick search I found this issue - https://drupal.org/node/495438
The following command works well -

–destination - specifies where to download Drupal to
–drupal-project-rename - renames the downloaded directory to your current directory
