    The Drupal trinity Kiat, SJ, and Joel are passionate about sharing their Drupal knowledge and real world experience as professionals .... We had a good mix of presentation, hands-on exercises, and Q&As - building a recipe sharing site to apply various concepts like Taxonomy, Content Types, Themes, Modules, etc on Acquia. Also got lots of extras about Distributions, Drush, and other nifty Drupal modules.

    I would like to know the scope and things that will be taught on that day?

    October 2, 2013

    • SJ

      Hey Andy, no one is organising this yet, but normally the content will be quite similar to http://training.acqui...­

      If I hear from Kiat correctly, your skill should be way beyond these basic stuffs :)

    Hello, was hoping there might be some drupal thing happening in Singapore on Nov 9th? Will be my first visit and wanted to say hello.

    August 29, 2013

    • SJ

      Hey mysty, I'm afraid we won't have anything on that day. Our meetups are usually on Tuesdays, once or twice a month.

      But if someone is free on 9th, we can always have social gathering.

    Hey, Sven and Charles, Microsoft has been quite active in helping the tech community of late. They may possibly open up their training rooms for this. I can ask for you. Another possible location is PropertyGuru.

    • SJ

      Hey Rio, thanks for helping to ask. We held last year's drupalcamp there. Was supposed to hold this year's there, too, but there was some last minute change of arrangement on their end.

      Instructor / facilitator is more of an issue rather than venue. We can always hold it in Plug-In@Blk71 too.
