As we previously announced, our application for a chinese community outreach has been accepted by the Drupal Association in this year cultivation grants. We decided to connect with the various local communities of China (namely Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Xiamen, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai and Bejing) and help them organize meetups; as we believe this will strengthen communities at a local level as well as a national one.
Our first destination is Chengdu, widely known for its pandas. With a great deal of help from the local Drupal community (thanks HyperGlide for your strong support), we finally ironed all inherent details of such an even and are happy to share the relevant information;
Who?; you of course, as well as other members of the local and chinese community.
What?; various presentations will take place, for beginners but also Drupal experts (presentations will include topics such as Introduction to Drupal 7, How to use Git, How to make your patch or How to collaborate with the community). Of course, if you are willing to make a presentation, do not hesitate and contact us via the Drupal Community Weibo page.
We are very excited to make our first stop of this 4 months trip around China promoting Drupal and the Open Source community in whole. See you all in Chengdu.
