It's been almost 2 wonderful years that I have been working on CiviCRM project, since we started development in India. From then things have changed. We started with a single file, (I think it was CRUD.php) which no longer exists :). What excites me the most about CiviCRM is the challenges that we face in implementing new features and the opportunity to work on advanced technologies. The scope is simply unlimited...
CiviCRM is not just another software, it is driven by the needs of the community, which makes this project very special to me. Since this software has also simultaneously been developed in US and Poland, makes it global in nature. This project has been crafted meticulously, so that there is a lot of scope for extensibility and it can be tailor-made to suit the requirements of host of organizations and non-profits. A lot of credit needs be given to the pioneers of this project, who are harbingers of the today's IT Industry.
We have grown from a team of 3 to 10. It gives me immense pleasure to work with my extremely talented and supportive team-mates, right from coding genius to testing Czar, which inturn helps to maintain the quality of CiviCRM. We gel well as a team which makes work more interesting and fun. We aim to achieve long term goal of becoming an effective team to deliver good sustainable results.
