dipen chaudhary's picture

hey everybody,
I miss you all :( hence I decided to do something about it. Well title is pretty evident but what,why and how remains undefined. Mukesh and myself talked about meeting soon where in we talk some drupal and ideas on doing something interesting on www. We will be doing this in mumbai (location subject to suggestions and everyone's convenience) and preferably this weekend. So what do you guys feel about meeting for coffee, what time suits you. Possible dates are 7-8 feb and could last couple of hrs. Also if you wish to discuss something specific please put all your ideas in comments.

Thanks

That's a good idea.

I will definitely be available for this meetup in Mumbai. And a coffee shop sounds good. I think this is a good opportunity to get to know the drupalers from Mumbai. I think I missed this bit of info at DC (maybe thats cause all i met were people from pune :P ).

+1 for this meet. Ideas to follow soon.
Cheers,
Gaurav

I wanted to meet you guys again, after the recent Drupal Camp changed my perspective about Drupal. I've got a lot of things to talk about. I'll try to make it. I'll be coming from Pune.

Convenient Time and Location

mukesh.agarwal17's picture

Lets decide on a convenient common place for everyone. A good way would be to mention the timing and location preferences.

I start :
Sunday : 5pm in the evening
Location : Anywhere :) I live in Chembur but no issues with location.

mukesh.agarwal17's picture

hi dipen,

As u said kevin is coming from pune, it wud be better if we meet at ccd chembur(e). As far as POA is concerned, we can start discussing the current issues that we have as developers, and end up coming up with some plans of how to spread the word of the small community of drupal developers in india, especially in mumbai... Wat else?

FYI
Dinesh Jajoo is also going to join us.

Good Brainstorming Session

kevin.gomes's picture

Hello,
A Wonderful Brain Storming Session took shape at the CCD. It started mild but after the Coffee, things started going at rocket speed. A few key topics we discussed about were:

  1. The Webform Module
  2. Improving Perfomance of Drupal
  3. Drupal6 Vs. Drupal5
  4. Directing the Internet Traffic with creative Application Ideas and Marketing Strategies
  5. Contributing to the Drupal Community with new Modules

Couldn't agree more

gauravkumar87's picture

The meetup was definitely very productive.

To elaborate a little:

  1. The Webform Module : Customization to include new widgets in forms.
  2. Improving Perfomance of Drupal : Apache Tuning, Memcache, PHP Accelerators, Squid etc.
  3. Drupal6 Vs. Drupal5 : New social networking features in D6 (and what's needed in 7)
  4. Directing the Internet Traffic with creative Application Ideas and Marketing Strategies : More of a general discussion with us discussing pros and cons of building an entirely new social network for a particular concept and then comparing it with "Applications" for already existing generic social networking sites.
  5. Contributing to the Drupal Community with new Modules : Self explanatory.

Cheers,
Gaurav

Interesting

mukesh.agarwal17's picture

The discussions were pretty interesting. I enjoy people talking about their experience with Drupal, as in what they find easy or difficult or cool and not feasible. All that happened :) Only thing I would love to see more participation. I know Dipen wanted to come and couldnt make it.

Lets find out more ways by which people can find time to join these meets. Was it a wrong day ?? :) I would love to see another meet within next 2 weeks or so.

BTW, we were 5 in the meet: Gaurav Kumar, Kevin Gomes, Amit Vyas, Abhishek Anand, and me.
Thanks everyone and especially Kevin for coming all the way from Pune.
