We had a great Meetup this week with 15 people – 10 in Sri Lanka and 5 joining virtually. We started off together, and then split into a virtual group and a on-location group before reporting back together at the end.
We were lucky to have Preeti Jha from UNDP to share the work she’s been doing on her deployment of Sahana in Nepal and Viraj from World Vision talk about their plans to explore Sahana.
Here are some of the links that were shared if you want to find out more:
- Nepal Sahana
- Sri Lanka SahanaCamp Exercise Site
- Authentication, Authorization, Accounting Wiki Page
- Permissions Settings for the Red Cross
- How to develop a custom Sahana template
- Getting Started in Sahana Eden
- Easy Bugs for Beginners
We’ve planned the next meetup at 4pm IST, 16th July. And will have a more focused agenda, with training to learn more about coding with Sahana and guidance to start working on some smaller tasks – hopefully to help Preeti upgrade her instance of Sahana! Looking forward to “seeing” you then. For more details and to sign up see the Sahana MeetUp – Colombo, Sri Lanka + Virtual Facebook Event
Thanks to Chamindra de Silva and Ramindu Deshapriya for organizing, Virtusa for providing the venue in Colombo and Cisco for providing the virtual venue with a free WebEx account!
