NoParrots.com free Drupal CMS trainings have been so far restricted to Delhi

http://drupal-delhi.noparrots.com is already 100+ members large and we have
had 6 meetups so far. During these 6 meetings we have introduced Drupal
fundamentals. Its been a fun and humbling experience to have so many of you
come to my training center in Gurgaon every Sunday afternoon and listen to
me teach you a little bit of Drupal

Bangalore to know if I offer online training. Starting from today, the
answer is "Yes!"

*If you have a broadband internet connection and an internet browser you
should be able to listen to my lectures and see me share my computer screen
as I demonstrate how to build websites in Drupal.*
As usual, I'll try to keep each session as independent as possible to the
previous one. You don't need any special programming knowledge to understand

Will confirm both dates and let know on feasibility of rooms and labs. MGM
stands for Mahatma Gandhi Missions, so we might be having some events on the
2nd already. Will revert asap. Will setup a wiki page and post to other
mailing lists too.
Do you have awareness about web3.0 ?
The Semantic Web is a web of data. There is lots of data we all use
every day, and it is not part of the web.
I can see my bank statements on the web, and my photographs, and I can
see my appointments in a calendar.
But can I see my photos in a calendar to see what I was doing when I
took them? Can I see bank statement lines in a calendar?
Why not? Because we don't have a web of data. Because data is
controlled by applications, and each application keeps it to itself.
Humans are capable of using the Web to carry out tasks such as finding
the Irish word for "directory", reserving a library book, and
searching for a low price for a DVD. However, one computer cannot
accomplish all of these tasks without human direction,
because web pages are designed to be read by people, not machines.
The semantic web is a vision of information that is understandable by
computers, so computers can perform more of the tedious work
involved in finding, combining, and acting upon information on the web.
We are going to make web3.0 with the basics of semantic web.
Let us discuss about web3.0 in this mailing list.
Welcomes you to real data understandable by computer as data not as text !

What is the Semantic Web?
Where Web 2.0 is focused on people, the Semantic Web is focused on machines.
The Web requires a human operator, using computer systems to perform
the tasks required to find, search and aggregate its information.
It's impossible for a computer to do these tasks without human guidance
because Web pages are specifically designed for human readers.
The Semantic Web is a project that aims to change that by presenting
Web page data in such a way that it is understood by computers,
enabling machines to do the searching, aggregating and combining of
the Web's information — without a human operator. :-)

Since we were discussing this sometime ago, I'm returning to it.
People mentioned we haven't had a good linux conference / event for a long
time in Mumbai.
I can arrange lecture halls / rooms and computer labs in my college [MGM
College Of Engineering And Technology, location: http://is.gd/dUPzZ ] on the
8th / 9th of October (or some other Saturday/Sunday before that)
What I'll need is support from you in terms of planning and arranging the
event. If any of you are willing to put some effort into this, please let me
