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!
This is actually the second meetup since DrupalCon Asia. The first one was held soon after the con and we had the honour of hosting Danese Cooper, who was one of the keynote speakers in DrupalCon Asia in Mumbai. That meetup was held at 91Springboard in Koramangala on 5th March, 2016 and saw an attendance of about 40-50 people. Danese Cooper repeated her keynote in DrupalCon Asia in essentials, which received great response. This was followed by a session on Mobile features in Drupal 8 by Ram Singh. Photos from this meetup are at the end of this post.
April’s meetup started at around 10:45 AM with Soumyajit Basu explaining about using Protractor JS for front-end testing. After an insightful session and an in-depth discussion on testing frameworks and methodologies, we continued with the session on Migrating from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 by Harish Goud. After that, I explained some of the more basic Migration concepts. I followed this with a discussion on drush make and composer.
Even though the attendance was lower than our usual meetups, we had a great and fruitful discussion. We ended with pizzas and soft drinks courtesy of Srijan and left around 2 PM.
