I missed joining the DrupalNYC meetup today. Well, I almost missed it but I was able to catch the last 10 minutes or so. That got me thinking about events and that’s the topic for today–Drupal events and their impact on my life. I travelled extensively for 4-5 years before the pandemic restrictions were put in place and since then, I have attended events around the world while sitting in my chair. These travels and events are responsible for my learnings and my professional (and personal) growth. And these are the perspectives that have given me the privilege that I enjoy.
The meetup started at 10:30 AM with a brief introduction of every attendee. We covered some of the Drupal news such as recent and upcoming events in India and internationally. We also talked about Drupal 9 and other changes in the technology.
Another month, another Drupal meetup in Bangalore. This month’s meetup was held at Athenahealth office on Lavelle Road in Bangalore. Since the last month’s meetup was scheduled a week early, there was more than usual gap since the last meetup. This time, we had a full schedule and exciting sessions planned.
July’s Drupal meetup was held at 91Springboard in Koramangala. We are back after a long time and that’s thanks to 91Springboard for providing us with the venue. Snacks in the meetup and lunch after the meetup were courtesy of Axelerant.
I went to the polyglot runtimes meetup after a very long time. This is one of the more enjoyable meetups happening in Bangalore, even though Java is usually the primary subject around the topics at these meetups. This was the first meetup of 2018 and the topics were very broad and attractive.
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.
