Writing CLI Commands for Drupal 8 using Symfony Components Talk by Jesus Manuel Olivas (founder of Drupal Console)

If you have been developing with Drupal and/or Symfony, chances are you may already know a great alternative to speed up the development process is to use a CLI tool.

Check your CSS works on handheld devices using Raspberry Pi

Talk by Nigel Milligan

Nigel will talk about a problem you may have faced in the past: Say you are developing on a local sandbox VM on your Mac. How can you easily check your CSS is working on hand held devices when you can’t edit their /etc/hosts files and point them to your site? Solutions such as localtunnel are usually firewalled and don’t work. How about an inexpensive Raspberry Pi acting as a proxy server on your network that will redirect your iPad, iPhone and Android device to your site! Nigel shows you how!


As usual we will have :

• General Drupal Q&A for anyone attending (for all levels from beginner to advanced).

• Bringing our problems (and laptops too!) to the table and see if we can come up with solutions together.

• Spreading awareness of any upcoming events of interest and mentioning interesting opportunities.
