Asia 2016

News & Updates

It's hard to believe that we're only two months out from DrupalCon Asia! Nearly half of our speakers at the Con are coming in from outside of the country, and we're anticipating the same for our attendees.

The grant and scholarship recipients for DrupalCon Asia have been selected. We had a lot of really great applications to look through, and narrowing down the winners was a difficult task. Still, we're pleased to announce that we have selected 20 recipients for grants and scholarships at DrupalCon Asia.

We're happy to announce that registration for DrupalCon Asia is now open. We're very excited for you to join us in Mumbai for the convention this February, and hope that you'll keep reading for more information on how to use the payment system for this Con.

Just as a note: Due to some unexpected delays with implementing the payment system, we've pushed back the Earlybird price change deadline to December 16. You now have an extra two weeks to purchase tickets at a steepy reduced rate. All of our other price-change deadlines remain the same.

One of the most exciting aspects of preparing for a DrupalCon is selecting the sessions that will be presented. It’s always incredibly cool and humbling to see all the great ideas that our community comes up with— and they’re all so great that making the official selections is definitely not an easy process! This time, the Track Chairs had almost 350 sessions to read through to determine which 50 would be presented in Mumbai.

We couldn't be more excited to bring DrupalCon to India: it's a unique and colorful nation with many amazing cultures. Though the Con itself will be held in Mumbai, we strongly recommend that anyone traveling to India for DrupalCon take the time to tour some of the many fascinating regions of India.

How much does India have to offer? Our friends at Niswey illustrated the Druplicon on a tour of the country, experiencing four unique cultures that India has to offer. Here's the comic, and you can see more information on each frame below.
