We had an awesome weekend at Drupal Camp Mumbai 2017. Met a lot of wonderful people and discussed and planned a host of community activities for the Bangalore Drupal community.


The one above was the first group photo post lunch. The Drupal Camp Mumbai 2017 was held at IIT Bombay, with a footfall of around 500 Drupalers, college students, and experts. Valuebound was one of the Gold sponsors for the event along with Acquia and we are glad to help with T-shirt and ID cards. Who doesn’t like an event Tee!

 

 

We had a tremendous response from the participants of the Drupal Camp. Valuebound had a booth where we saw a lot of participants register for an ongoing hiring process.

 

 

Drupal 8 was the main attraction for the booth since Valuebound only works with Drupal 8. Aaaaand! We are still HIRING. Find out more about opportunities with Valuebound. 

 

 

We had five sessions altogether in the camp, Rakesh James & Manoj Kumar presented sessions on How to start Contributions, PHPUnit for Drupal, Drupal 8 Migration and Creating Drupal 8 Modules using the Drupal Console. It was a jam-packed session (see the tweet below!) but unfortunately, we weren't there to click a pic :(

 

 

We also were a part of the CXO meeting - discussed how to improve the market share of Drupal, increase awareness for Drupal. CSI and Acquia to help promote FOSS and Drupal in colleges.

 

 

Meeting Vijay, the only Indian in the Drupal core maintainers list.

 

 

Awesome code-sprint, lots of participants and a room full of enthusiasm!

We discussed bringing all Drupal Camps to once place or one umbrella to avoid clashes for the camp dates.

 

 

Meeting Sudheesh Sudhakaran from TCS, we had a long chat and discussed Drupal Camp Bangalore. Yes, it might be happening sooner than you think!

 

 

It was a great experience for us all and we look forward to being great hosts once again like the 2015 Bangalore Drupal Camp. We took with us a lot of inspirations, good works, great memories, a lot of pals, and ideas for more community contributions and Collaborations.
