This quarter's Drupal Global Training Day happened on 23rd May 2015. In association with the pune drupal community a two day workshop was conducted in Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies & Research. The workshop was a two days program held on 23rd May 2015 and 24th May 2015 which focused on giving practical sessions on views basics, advanced views, basic Drupal theming and module development. Ajit Shinde and Saheel Sikilkar took the sessions on views along with few team members to mentor the students.
In the session students were made to build there own job portal. Throughout the training practical sessions was focused on along with making flowcharts to make understanding easier.Students were keen to get their doubts cleared, this kept the session interactive.
On the second day training moved to front end on Drupal, The workshop was taken up by Saket Kumar and Swastik Pareek, along with other members of Pune community helping in the lab with student doubts and queries, the workshop focussed on basic front end workflow for Drupal and also delved into custom theme development from scratch.
Students were shown how to design a page using the psd designs and were given task to design their homepage for job portal which they built, the previous day. Basic module development was discussed by Dinu Mishra from the Pune community and went on to cover basic building blocks of a custom module. With that we wrapped up 2 days of engaging workshops with future Drupalers.
Few lines shared by students on the workshop:
""The sessions were quite good enough to let us understand the system from the basics. I learned many new things which I was supposed to learn. Without asking questions to them many of my confusions were cleared. Doing hands on one by one was a good technique rather than explaining everything and then doing hands on, it was a good workshop held by you guys.

""We did not have the clear idea about Drupal earlier, but the session gave us the whole idea about Drupal Development. The team which taught us Drupal was so calm and helpful, that gave a spark of interest in Drupal.

""The Drupal Workshop was an informative session where we could learn about the module and theme development and many other features which Drupal provides. There was a hands on session too that helped us to learn more about Drupal as we could practically see the outcomes.
