Bangalore has become a meetup scene with hundreds of meetups throughout the city (conferences too, but that’s a given). I have been to a polyglot meetup organised by IBM several times and was impressed that made an earnest effort to be a part of the open source and developer community. When I was invited to the IBM code day, I was immediately interested in attending it. The schedule looked awesome with tracks on data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc.
This month’s Drupal meetup was held at TCS Global Axis office in Bangalore on February 25, 2017. TCS has previously hosted us at their other office in Whitefield and we are grateful for their support for Drupal community activities.
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!
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.
