DrupalCon Asia – Day 0 and Day 1

Parent Feed: 

DrupalConASIA is here!!! I am back in the busy city of Mumbai and in the premises of IIT Bombay, which also saw DrupalCamp Mumbai last year. This time, it is a much bigger conference; in all ways. More people, more sessions, more community, more fun.

As DrupalCon tradition goes, we start on Thursday, 18-Feb-2016, with summits (for business, government, education, and community) and a whole lot of trainings. I was fortunate enough to speak at the community summit about some of the issues surrounding contribution.

I was still tired with everything around the con, including the Developer Contest by Azri Solutions in which I was participating, and went back early. The only other thing I did that day was attend Axelerant’s team dinner / party. I also met my old colleagues at Blisstering Solution there.

Next day dawned early but I was still not well and was late to prenote!

The prenote was great, and ended with a dance where almost all of the audience went up on the stage to dance.

This was followed by an introduction by Holly Ross, a guide to pronouncing D8 by Sunit Gala, and then the DriesNote.

Of course, Dries had to wear a turban.

And who’s up for an yearly DrupalCon in India?

And then the group photo.

We then went to sessions, collecting swag at booths, meeting people, and so on.

It was all possible because of the Drupal Association team and sponsors:

It was a great day and I’m looking forward to Day 2!
