Shyamala Rajaram Elected to Drupal Association Board
Proud moment for Unimity Solutions in 2016 was to have Shyamala Rajaram Elected to the Drupal Board of Drupal Association.
She has been an active contributing member of the Drupal Community for over 10+ years. Involved in different contributions - starting with Drupal Forums, Drupal Code, QA, Project Management, Community building and more. For the elections, Shyamala competed against 22 other candidates across the world for this post and won!

- An Interesting Podcast/Video on “A walk through New Orleans with Shyamala Rajaram” with Acquia.
- Podcast on “The Geek Voice – Ep. 1 – Meet Shyamala, Drupal Association Director At Large” with Axelerant.
The First board meeting was in DrupalCon Dublin (September 2016). At Dublin the Board worked with Megan, the Executive director in defining the strategic direction and the boundaries in which the Drupal Association should operate to ensure Sustainability. For a quick preview into her experience at the board meeting read the post, My DrupalCon Dublin Board Retreat!
Shyamala also had a chance to meet Drupal Association Staff Members. Cheer the work of the Drupal Association staff, understand what they do from the post “Drupal Board Staff Mixer”.
Drupal Con Asia
DrupalCons are always vibrant & flagship initiative of Drupal Community. A chance to meet our mentors, maintainers of our favorite modules, core developer who commit our patches, system admins who keep drupal.org running smoothly and many such key stakeholders of Drupal under a single roof. DrupalCon Asia - February 2016, was a much awaited and very first DrupalCon in India.
Unimity Solutions sponsored, contributed and participated in DrupalCon Asia held in February 2016 in Mumbai. It’s a fascinating experience to all of us, who attended DrupalCon Asia to meet Dries and Drupalists from all over the world to learn & cherish Drupal 8. Key Highlights for Unimity in DrupalCon Asia:
- It was the first DrupalCon for 3 of our developers.
- Participated in Sprint Contributions.
- Presentation by Shyamala Rajaram on “Drupal & You - Give, Learn, Connect, get recognized, start contributing today!”
