We're organizing an interactive workshop on 22nd October in Bangalore
to learn about the following:
* Certification opportunity for professionals

If you are not in Bangalore, no problem. Just send a message to Akash
(email@example.com) or to me off-list. We will send you dial-in
Target audience for the workshop:
Folks, the site is now twitter enabled.
To set up your twitter account,
1. Login to the twin site.
2. Click My Account from the menu on the left.
3. Click Edit and then click Twitter Accounts.
4. Click Add Account. You will be redirected to the Twitter Site.
5. Twitter asks you to allow access to the twin-drupal application. Click Allow.

Done. This is a one time process to add your twitter account.
I have noticed people posting jobs anywhere they like - in blogs and forums. This is NOT allowed.
Post JOBS only in the JOBS section. No where else.
Forums are meant for queries. If you have a query on something, post it in the appropriate forum.
Blogs are meant to articulate your thoughts. May be you have a good article related to TW, or may be you have some tips on TW. Post it in your blog. Do NOT post queries in blogs. Anything unrelated to TW goes in the LOUNGE.
Do NOT post resumes anywhere except in the RESUME section.
I have updated the site. Drupal [actually we run on a modified Drupal version called Pressflow] has been updated to the latest version 6.
I have installed a mobile theme. Accessing the site through a mobile phone, should display the site properly.
I have also installed a twitter module. After login, click My Account, click Twitter and set your twitter account details.
Once set, you have the option to announce your post on twitter. Select post to twitter when publishing the post.
Folks, I have added a proper Rapid SSL paid certificate to the site.
This should be compatible on all browsers.
Delete the SSL certificate exceptions for twin-india.org if you have added them to the browser, earlier.
To do this on Mozilla Firefox:
- Click Edit - Preferences
- Click Encryption and then click View Certificates
- Select the Startcom SSL certificates or the older self signed certificates for twin-india.org and www.twin-india.org and click Delete
Enjoy secure browsing.
All software on the server has been upgraded. Files have been backed up and the site is back in operation.
