It was indeed a unique experience presenting and conducting a Workshop on Drupal to a group of Academicians and Researchers. The Workshop was organised by Free Software Movement of India at NCAR Hyderabad, India. It gives me great pride that I participated in a Workshop that was inaugurated by Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam.
Siva from Drupal Hyderbad and I conducted this Workshop together. We only met in the morning, but we were so much in Synch and Conducted the workshop as though we had always worked together! Wondering what brought this togetherness, it was ofcourse the fact that both of us were Drupalers! Drupal brought us together.
Both Siva and I had short Presentations and we also helped our participants have a handson on Drupal, trying out a Drupal installation from scratch, changing the theme, enabling modules and actually feeling the power of Drupal.
The most exiting part of these Workshops are always the Question Answer Sessions. Some of the interesting Questions were:
How can Drupal help Academicians and Researchers?
How is Drupal different from Moodle?
How can I change the look and feel of my Drupal site?How do you install new modules?
