A Drupal Ecosystem emerging in Palestine?
submitted by: lior
I'm attending Startup Weekend in TLV which is turning out to be a really great and colorful event. One of the coolest things is that I finally got to meet Tim Cullen which is leading the development of a local Drupal community in Ramalah. I'm a big believer in the epic power of open-source to enable communication where none exists or where barriers (technological or political) might limit communication and innovation. I took ( a low quality and shaky ) video of Tim's presentation. This brings me to make the safe assumption that a local peace initiative can really help Drupal 8 adoption ;)

Awesome to see the open source energy in TLV. Look forward to seeing if a DrupalCamp can take shape.

Lior--thanks for the kind words. StartupWeekend is an amazing event, and I'm glad it's going to be a regular occurrence. I'm also excited to keep things moving forward growing the Drupal community here in Ramallah. Like I said in the presentation--all the essentials are in place--I'm really optimistic!

Awesome!

Time for a Drupal meetup somewhere in the B zone, so that Drupal people from Ramallah and Tel Aviv can meet up... Or otherwise, in Amman!
