That was long overdue! I’ve been meaning to add secure certificate for the domain (and all subdomains) amrute.me for quite some time. Finally, I made the site connection secure, thanks to Let’sEncrypt.
By the way you should donate to its wonderful cause of providing SSL/TLS certificate for free (even the wildcard certificates!!) LetsEncrypt is free, automated & Open certificate authority(CA).

DrupalCon is happening in Asia for the first time. Lucky for me it’s happening in India, Mumbai near I live (at IIT Bombay to be precise). I’ve been following Drupal Events and news since the launch of D8; and thinking of attending the conference. Today is the last day to pay for the tickets and register for the event. I delayed my decision to max and paid more than double the super-early bird price. ₹ 8,000 is still considered an costly conference in India even if you bill it as business expense. I know it’ll payback. Drupal is a whole new level, compared to other obvious choices for website development (read WordPress & Joomla). I was blown away by the built-in features & the possibilities with Drupal 8. D8 took forever to launch since the last version (released in 2011) and it changed everything. I hope the wait is well worth, especially now, when I’ve decided to work on the project using Drupal platform. Currently I’m building it on D7 due to lack of mature modules. But, eventually more mods will be available to D8. Sooner the better. Better even before the launch of our app. My plan is to start working on Drupal 8 as soon as I am satisfied with MVP (minimum viable product/ prototype) on D7, and built it on HHVM instead of currently available version of PHP. HHVM, the hacked PHP by Facebook team, is surely faster than PHP.
DrupalCon is multi-track (parallel lectures) event with loads of informative sessions and non-stop flow of the tips, lessons & knowledge. They have very unique session (or should I call it un-session?) called BoF.
Birds of a Feather sessions (or BOFs) are informal gatherings of like-minded individuals who wish to discuss a certain topic without a pre-planned agenda. BOFs allow groups to meet and discuss issues relating to regular conference sessions and talk out common problems facing the community.
Isn’t it cool? A space for like minded people with informal settings and no-agenda. I’m really excited to attend this conference. I never attended DrupalCamps (the smaller version) nor DrupalCons before. And I’m sure there’s going to be loads of take-away. I’ll write post-event blog about my experience.
If you happened to be coming to DrupalCon Asia next week feel free to ping me on twitter.
The cool guys at WPMU Dev run testimonial contest. They asked the members to submit 30 seconds or shorter video about their services. I’m very much impressed with what offer so I jumped in!
Here we go!
Internet Infrastructure Coalition
Joining hands with Internet Infrastructure Coalition.
This week I attended WHD.India where I got opportunity to talk to David Snead of I2Coalition, the public interest body for the internet and its culture. I learned that something similar to I2Coalition is coming to India & I’m looking forward to be part of it.
