DC Alpe-Adria (DCAA) is first bigger event organized by Slovenian Drupal community and will be the biggest Drupal event in this part of Europe in spring 2013. It will take place in hear of the Europe, Ljubljana, ob 13th and 14th of April.
DCAA evolved from the idea to hold the next Drupal Balkan summit, that was organized three times in three different countries so far, and got quite a community momentum in the space of Ex Yugoslavia. DCAA tries to expand this momentum to other countries in the region, including Italy, Austria, Hungary, etc.
There are a lot of reasons to attend DCAA, among the others:
Back at DrupalCon Munich code sprint I started to work on a core issue that is focused on implementing HTML5 multiple uploads support in Drupal. Since I've always been interested in file handling I immediatley found this very attractive. From the other hand I always strugeled when it comes to files in Drupal. There are so many solutions and none of them is really user friendly. I thought that this feature would make Drupal's UX much better. During my travel back home from Munich and the days after I spent some time working on the issue, but then it stuck somwhere in the middle due to my lack of time.
Slovenian Drupal community is preparing the first biggest Drupal event in Slovenia. Drupal Camp Alpe-Adria (DCAA) is a Central European Drupal event that will gather Drupal users, developers, supporters and fans from Alpe-Adria region countries and of course everyone else that is willing to come.
Session proposal submissions have been opened today. If you are interested in the event feel free to follow us on Twitter, Like us on Facebook or visit our webpage and express your interest there.
Google Summer of code is very well know in our community, but it is not the only Google's program for open source projects. Another interesting project is Code-in, which is focused on pre-university students aged between 13 an 17 years. It's goal is to promote open source between young people and to encourage them to participate. Code-in is a great opportunity for projects like Drupal to attract new enthusiasts that have potential to become good developers in the future.
Plupload module invokes file_validate() with file object that carries nonexistent file uri. Uri, that is passed to validation, is representing a location where file is supposed to be uploaded. At that moment the file is actually located on a completely different (temporary) location. Validation hooks are unable to load file and do various of operations as a result of this.
We propose a patch that fixes this. Problem is, that this solution also breaks API compatibility. As this issue definitely needs to be fixed, I'd still not like to commit something, that would make people willing to kill me. :)
