Drupal

Drupal is my first love, I owe so much to it. Back in 2007 when I was thinking of doing something in life I started creating a website in core php and quickly realised how difficult it would be to maintain all that code. I tried following MVC but still it was pain. My intention was to create a community website for IP University Delhi from where I graduated. In September 2007 I gave Drupal a quick try and fell in love with it. I was aware of other CMS as well but Drupal was somewhere in between a CMS and custom coding. I spent 2 months working on Drupal and recreated www.ggsipu.info in Drupal. That site later went on to become the most popular site for many many years for students who were seeking admission on IP University. So far in my life there have been few things that gave me immense satisfaction and working on that site and help students was one of them. I also earned some money from it through Google Ads but the motivation was to help students. From 2007 till 2010 I learned a lot about Drupal and that gave me the confidence to start my own company in March 2010. We started with Drupal Consultation and focused on that for a long time until I gained lot of experience in Jira and realised that for business providing Atlassian consultancy will bring much more money.

Things have changed a lot in these years but it was all because of Drupal. I always enjoyed working on it and I remember all those moments of hard work, meeting clients all across Delhi, traveling to far locations just in hope to get some work, money was never a problem but to establish something you need regular business and I did work hard a lot and used my knowledge of Drupal to sustain my company. When I started providing Jira consultation Spaxsys was already quite stable in terms of business. It was a bit frustration sometime to work on Drupal but I love it a lot.
