Fee: The workshop is free to attend. However we strongly recommend that you contribute towards supporting Aaron Winborn, contributor of Media suite of modules, Embedded Media Field and Views Slideshow Modules as well as a book Drupal Multimedia

Aaron Winborn is a longtime Drupal contributor and friend to the community. He has been diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The disease has made his life increasingly difficult as it attacks his nervous system. To cope with the mounting costs of treating his condition, Aaron has set up a special needs trust. We shall be collecting funds, which shall be donated to the Special Needs Trust on behalf of Drupal Bangalore. We suggest an amount of INR 500 for the cause. However any amount would be equally valuable.

Special Thanks to Jacob Singh, for accepting the invitation to present his talk at Drupal Training Day at Bangalore.

Thanks to KNS Technologies for offering to use their space and facilitating and helping us organizing the event.

Hi Guys,

Nice to see that there is enough activity happening around the Drupal training day. From Azri Solutions we will have a session on Drupal and RDF. I have already submitted the details of the session in the Google form.

Session Details :
Drupal goes semantic with RDF : More humane web in making
In this session we will discuss how semantics can change the web for better and the role Drupal plays in making your websites ready for semantics and Web 3.0

What is web sematics in general and RDF in particular.
The difference in interpretation of web by humans and machines.
Making the web more readable even for the machines.
How searches will be more meaningful.
How Drupal+RDF can give you a boost with respect to SEO
Comparison of 3 alternative modules for Drupal RDF
Discussion of N3, Turtle and NTriples
RDF as standard for exports and imports. A much better data migration model.

@Tanay : Can you share the view access to the submission results form, so that we can see what are the other sessions added and make sure that there is no duplication?

What a day it was! We had

saitanay's picture

What a day it was!

We had sessions from Jacob Singh, Hussain, Gokul and Pavithra.

Jacob Singh's insights on how they could engage the interns in learning Drupal at 'Acquia You' gave cool insights to owners of teams present in the meet about how training programs could be designed to be more of fun than work!

Hussain's session on building a responsive theme using Omega was a real quick-start guide to start building a subtheme out of Omega.

Gokul threw some light on RDF and what is all means about "semantic web" with a live Drupal demo of how we can actually make Spiders and Bots understand what the webpage is talking about and how each page is related to the others, using the RDF module.

Thanks Pavithra! Your insights of how each of us could contribute code to Drupal will definitely help in the evolution of some more Drupalers from today's attendees. And we hope you will soon be called the "webchic of India" as you hope to be.

I can say, our Campaign, to collect a decent amount to contribute to the cause of Aaron Winborn, has been successful and below are the list of contributors.

Name Email Amount INR Payment Method
Tanay tanay (@) tanay.co.in $50 (INR 2720) Collected at KNSTEK Camp
Jaya Jayanth jaya (@) margabandhu.com INR 1000 Transferred to Tanay

Pulkit pulkit (@) knstek.com 500 Collected at KNSTEK Camp
Guru Prasanna CS guru (@) harvest-soft.com N/A Online Payment to Special Needs Trust

The total amount collected translates to INR 6720

As per Paypal's conversion rates, the amount was equated to $118.84
Charged on card by Paypal @ INR 6719.78

You may find the receipt of the Paypal Transaction HERE

Hope this makes a small difference in the lives of those associated.

Hi Tanay, Wanted to send a

neerajskydiver's picture

Hi Tanay,

Wanted to send a thank you note and tell you how much I enjoyed the meeting fellow Drupalers in the session. Member Organizing the event did a great job in putting it all together. It was nice to see the sessions so organized and I am glad that team is trying to make it a regular affair in the future. Due to bad health I had to miss after lunch session. But I will be regular in future events and you can count me in for any activities towards making the initiative successful.

Again, a GREAT job done by the whole team and now I am looking forward to next meet.

Cheers!
