Hosted by DIA

Event Detail

Welcome to DIA Virtual Conclave. An online Drupal event organized by the Drupal India Association as part of its ambitious goals of advocating and enabling the Indian Drupal Community towards becoming one of the top quality contributors of Drupal. 

This event is focused around contribution excellence and Drupal 9, which got released on 3rd June 2020. Being the easiest major version upgrade in a decade, Drupal 9 has also got dramatically easier tools for the end-user. The Drupal community is excited about it and can't wait to explore, share, and learn more.

This will be a half-day event with unique programming and an impressive lineup of speakers. We'll have Muktesh Kandpal, Country Head of Acquia India delivering a keynote about "Navigating your career in Opensource" Gábor Hojtsy will present "State of Drupal 9," while Preston So will talk about "A new grand compromise in content management". We'll have a Community Panel session moderated by our own Rakhi Mandhania, and some prominent Indian community and contribution leaders.

We will finally be wrapping up with an intriguing Closing Keynote about "Women in Open Source" by Megan Sanicki. Megan is Drupal Association's past Executive Director and presently working with Research & Operations, Open Source Program Office at Google.  

This event will be organized via Zoom. Please register / RSVP here to receive the zoom link for attending.
