I attended a meetup organised by the Polyglot Languages and Runtimes meetup group on Functional Programming this weekend. I was very attracted to the topics but I was particularly interested in the session on R programming language.
This month’s Drupal meetup was held at Srijan Technologies office in Bangalore on August 27, 2016. This was the first time we had a Drupal meetup in Kalyannagar, or even so far north in Bangalore and as such, we had a lot of new faces. There were around 20 attendees out of 32 RSVP’s which is just about the attendance ratio in meetups in Bangalore.
I can’t remember the last time I went to a meetup using public transportation. The reasons this became possible is location. The location of today’s Docker meetup is reachable using a direct bus from my home, which is a very very rare thing to happen to me. Even though I traveled by bus through one of the Bangalore’s busiest streets, I reached only 10 minutes late, which is good considering that I only realized very late that this meetup began at 9:30 AM!
In this post, let’s cover how you can set up your Windows machine for optimal Drupal development (or PHP in general). I’ll be covering Windows 10 but this could very well apply for other versions.
Things have gotten busy after DrupalCon Asia which meant that the Drupal meetup we hold in Bangalore every month was a little difficult to organize. Srijan Technologies stepped up and offered their office space in Whitefield, Bangalore. They also took care of snacks and even lunch for all the attendees. Kudos to Srijan for organizing the meetup. Thank you!
The meetup started with DigitalOcean’s India representative introducing us to the company and their plans for India. They gave out stickers and T-Shirts and spoke about how DigitalOcean is opening a data center in Bangalore.
I recently wrote about trying out Ubuntu 16.04 desktop on my other blog. I don’t really use Ubuntu on my laptop but I like to keep up with updates. However, I do use Ubuntu on a couple of my servers and I thought of upgrading on one of them. I was already using PHP 7 for the application there and I figured that would be the easiest one to get started. Well, it didn’t work out but it was a nice learning experience.
