This month’s Drupal meetup in Bangalore was held this weekend, on 25th November. Specbee Consulting office kindly provided us with a venue for the meetup and helped organise the event. This meetup happened after a period of six months, and the motive was to get the meetup activities started again in Bangalore.
We are hoping to make organising the meetups and all related activities much more easy and sustainable for everyone involved in Bangalore. A full discussion of these initiatives should probably happen elsewhere, but by starting off with this meetup this month, we hope to keep this running in a more stable manner with minimal load on the organisers. If you’d like to stay updated on when meetups are announced, join us on Meetup.
The day started at around 10:30 AM with a round of introduction of everyone present. The first presentation of the day was by Parvateesam Konapala and Rakesh James who introduced Symfony Components to everyone. They introduced various components used in Drupal such as Event Dispatcher, Dependency Injection, Serializer, etc… The discussion ended with a talk of tools like Drupal Console.
This was followed by a small break with refreshments provided by Specbee Consulting.
After the break, Taher Jodhpurwala spoke about quickly starting with Drupal development. In the presentation, Taher shared ways in getting started with Drupal development with minimum effort using tools like composer, Lando, etc…
Lastly, I discussed a bit of how we use CI systems like Gitlab and Circle CI to manage, test, and deploy our Drupal websites. The meetup ended at 1:30 PM with a group photo.
I’d like to thank Specbee Consulting for providing a venue for the meetup and all the support and, of course, refreshments. Photos from the meetup are below.
