Polyglot runtimes meetup 24-Mar 2018
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.
IBM Code Day 2018
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.
Applying composer patches fails silently
I came across an interesting bug with composer-patches plugin (it really is a git-apply bug/behavior). TL;DR, it is fixed in the latest version of composer-patches plugin as of this writing–1.6.4.

Vagrant 2.0 and DrupalVM

Drupal Meetup Bangalore – August 2016
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.
