DrupalCon Asia: A significant moment in the history of Drupal

Mumbai was surely on cloud nine, with DrupalCon Asia painting the city red in waves of excitement, diversity, and sheer vibrance. The three-day event, held from February 18-21, 2016, in IIT-Bombay, featured high-value summits, interactive knowledge sharing sessions, Birds of a Feather (BOFs) sessions, high-calibre presentations, workshops, training, and week-long code-sprints.

Held in Asia for the first time, the event garnered a lot of enthusiasm and interest, with a very powerful international presence, with attendees from 32 countries taking part in it. Yet another surprising fact is that 840 of the 1025 attendees were first-timers at the DrupalCon. For the Indian Drupal community, DrupalCon Asia provided a fabulous opportunity to connect with their global counterparts. Dries Buytaert, Founder and lead developer of Drupal CMS, delivered the keynote address at the function, that focused on the latest updates on Drupal and the Drupal community.

The DrupalGov summit was organised with the active participation and support of the Open Source Consortium of India (OSCI), IIT Bombay, and the Drupal Association. The conference brought together the key stakeholders from the Indian government, consulting organisations, and technology experts from India, UK, Australia, and the EU, to discuss how Drupal could be powerful enabler for the success of the Digital India initiative.

At the panel discussions: Sharing perspectives on Digital transformation in India

Mr. Thomas P. Thomas, CEO, Zyxware Technologies, participated in the third panel discussion on “How and where can Drupal and its community be best deployed, using these tactics, to solve the challenges in Digital Transformation in India?" held as part of the DrupalGov Summit.

Venkatesh Hariharan; Open Innovation Network, OSS Evangelist and OSCI co-founder, started the panel discussions by outlining the criticality of the following policies – Open Standards, Open Source Policy, Open Data Policy, Source Open Policy and Open APIs - for a successful Digital Transformation initiative in India. The panel discussions mainly focused on the various challenges that need to be addressed in implementing these policies. As part of creating a larger pool of Drupal programmers, a professor from IIT Bombay offered the possibility of using Spoken Tutorial platform as a means to introduce Drupal to new learners. Zyxware Technologies agreed to share its training curriculum to enable Spoken Tutorial to set up a course on Drupal in Spoken Tutorial.

Required fields are marker * mukund joglekar (not verified) access_time 18 Aug 2019 - 08:08 Suggestions: Replace all references to 'floss', 'foss', 'open source' from your website and webpages. Allow only the term 'Free software' a la GNU. Also, do your good work ONLY for software that satisfies GNU's stringent and 'virginity conscious' licences. How do you spell the noun 'licence' in your writings? (To the cursory observers or 'pragmatic' 'thinkers', this may sound like trivial, idle nitpicking. Experience will show that it is not. Remember Gandhiji.) moral: Do not compromise principles even BEFORE you do any good. Don't compromise even AFTER yo do it. But that longer and harder journey begins right now. Good luck (and purest, uncompromisingest goals) for your project. webmaster access_time 18 Aug 2019 - 08:08 In reply to free software cd's/dvd's by mukund joglekar (not verified) Dear Mukund, Thank you for your valuable input and suggestions. We have a few people working on the content here and hence the slight variations on spelling (US vs British issues). We try to stick to US versions as far as possible. But, yes, we will be more careful in the future. Our definition of FLOSS, FOSS and Open Source is the same as the purest definition by GNU. However we believe that all the other variants subscribe to the same philosophy to varying degrees. Our vision is to promote the concept of open source as a viable alternative to closed source solutions. This would mean that sometimes we have to promote non GPLed software too. Some of the non-GPLed software are very popular and most of them embrace the philosophy behind GPL wholeheartedly. But some the non-GNU licenses allow some parasitic elements to thrive on such licensed software. I am referring to licenses like BSD licenses that does not require the user to distribute source code with their modifications. In our opinion, to not promote these variants of Open Source Licenses would be akin to shooting oneself in the foot to cure an itch in the foot. Thus, even though we understand and realize the superiority of GPL over non-GPL variants, we have taken a stand to promote Open Source in general. Weeding out can happen later when the Open Source camp has built itself up into an empire.

We are moving from our present location this year. After having spent nearly 3 years at our current office location we have decided to move out. We are planning to split our operations - hardware and software - to two locations. We are looking for office spaces or residential buildings that can be used for commercial purposes. We request all our well wishers in Trivandrum city to let us know of any potential places to move out to within the coming one month or so. You can read more details about the houses/offices we are looking to rent in Trivandrum here News Leave a reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marker *
