Ten years in the industry 🎉

I have been now creating software for more than ten years. On July 17, 2009, I submitted the first code and documentation to the project called Brihaspati 2 by IIT Kanpur.

Brihaspati 2 was an e-learning system used by various universities of India, including IITs and IGNOU. I contributed to the code for Whiteboard where instructors can make drawings, freehand or pre-defined components while chatting with students, at a time when there was no socket.io.

I also contributed to its documentation for installation on a Fedora/Red Hat server. This was submitted to the Yahoo! Group of Brihaspati 2.

For three months in the summer vacation of 2009, I sat for more than 20 hours per day in front of my laptop to code this. It was at a time when there were no Broadband or 3G, so I asked my father to look out for Chip/Digit magazines that give a free CD of Fedora, Red Hat or Ubuntu.

What a time. What nostalgia!

I am so proud to have met some good friends and co-workers in the last decade, because of all the projects I have done.

The exciting thing is that at the end of 10 years, I am still building an e-learning system - check out FramerSpace :)
