Drupal Community in Nepal is speeding up

Drupal Community in Nepal got born on Software Freedom Day'06. As decided on that day, finally we organized a drupal writeshop on Sunday, 12th Nov. The main purpose of writeshop was not to provide technical solution or orientation of Drupal but to find the ways of making this community active in fulfilling its objectives and getting action plan to start in coming days.

The objectives of the Drupal Community in Nepal are:
  • To foster collaboration amongst Drupal enthusiasts in Nepal
  • To collectively explore the opportunities that Drupal can bring for advancement of Internet technologies in Nepalese context
  • To create an active and vibrant Nepali Web Community
  • To create awareness amongst people (students, working professionals) the use of Drupal as a Conent Management System.

Overall the programme was excellent. Participants were very happy with the programme. The google group is flooded with their thankful messages :-) So are we.

The entire proceedings of the writeshop is available for viewing. The success of this writeshop and the Drupal Community as a whole, depends upon how vibrant the community is in future.

Anyone interested to know or join Drupal Community in Nepal may do so by registering in drupalnepal google groups.
