As usual the day before the DrupalCon official start, code sprints and summits like Business, Community and Government take place, I have to say there were a lot of people came to the sessions.

I decided to participate in Government summit, where J.A.M led a lecture about Drupal in Government, and after that, I attend a session led by Natalie Taylor “Successful digital transformation of UK government departments.”

After that, I go out to say hello to some friends and try to meet new ones. The organisation offers an exquisite Indian food menu for lunch.

With all energies, I get in Contribute code sprint to help to Pratomo Ardianto who wants to contribute a new language for DrupalConsole to Indonesian.

To finish my day in Drupal Con Asia, I attended the panel “Roadblocks and Challenges” as part of Government summit.

To end my day, I chill out with some members of the Taiwan community.

As part of Government Summit, Ani Gupta, the organiser offers a party in Rude Lounge, nothing hardcore as parties at DrupalCons in the USA, but better than Drupalcons in Europe

Today the DrupalCon continue with open sessions, and I will lead the B.O.F DrupalConsole in Hindi/हिन्दी: Doing Drupal 8 code without speaking English/अंग्रेजी बोले बिना Drupal 8 मे कोड कर I will report my experience tomorrow.
