DrupalCon Vienna: An amazing learning experience

Posted by Jyoti Singh on Oct 3, 2017 11:56:00 AM

DrupalCons are always the highlight of the year for any Drupaler, especially when it’s your first! And so I wanted to put together my thoughts and learnings from DrupalCon Vienna.

Here we go!

Our team of four from Srijan landed at Vienna right on time to join in on all the excitement. We obviously spent some time setting up our booth and chatting up Drupalers from across the globe. That’s always one of the best parts of DrupalCon, the interactions you have and the learnings you find in unexpected conversations.

The DriesNote

The first day of Con is always about the DriesNote. Dries’ State of Drupal address is looked forward to by the entire community as a marker of where Drupal is headed. It helps us see the big picture and gives a scope of the tremendous possibilities of the technology that we work with every day.

Some of the highlights from Dries’ keynote were:

  • The growing adoption of Drupal 8 with 38% of Drupal business projects choosing D8
  • Drupal agencies overall are doing better business with an improved sales pipeline and larger projects
  • A 2x increase in the number of stable Drupal 8 project, over a single year, due to a mature and involved contribution ecosystem
  • Agencies are increasingly pairing up Drupal with other open-source technologies to deliver better digital experiences for their clients
  • While Drupal is now better equipped to deliver enterprise-grade solutions, the vast majority of non-enterprise Drupal projects can also leverage the “rich” online experiences made possible with Drupal

The Sessions

The DrupalCon sessions are the best place learn new skills and also share your expertise. This time around, Srijan had the opportunity to present three sessions at DC Vienna. 

Evolution of Digital and Retail stores leveraging Drupal  by Shashank Merothiya

Shashank spoke about the next level of integrated user engagement at digital and retail stores. He shared learning from one of our on-going projects to illustrate how Drupal 8 is being leveraged as a single, omnichannel content management system, providing configurable, multi-site, template-driven user experience. 

Tunneling Its Way Fast with BigPipe by Jyoti Singh

I talked about performance optimization using the BigPipe module. BigPipe is a browser rendering system created by Facebook that breaks the web pages into logical sections of content, called Pagelets, and pipeline the generation and rendering of these Pagelets.

Demystifying Dependency Injection and Services in Drupal 8  by Jyoti Singh

This session was about using Object Oriented Programming in Drupal 8 for code reuse and encapsulation, allowing users to build better maintainable applications with structured codes. 

The sessions were a huge opportunity for me to interact with other Drupalers, answer queries, and explore new perspectives on the topics that I shared.

We also made it a point to attend other interesting sessions at the Con around project management, DevOps, enhanced D8 modules and more.

Srijan’s Yogendra Prasad was also a mentor at the day-long code sprints at Vienna. He mentored the Novice code sprints, assisting new Drupalers in understanding the contribution process and helping them join the online Drupal community.


What’s DrupalCon without the fun! There was, of course, the different booth goodies and games by the various Drupal teams. Tons of cools stickers, t-shirts, and even tattoos. But the best was the ball pit by Digitalist. 

The Trivia night was another eagerly awaited event at the Con. With rounds of interesting quizzes and great team spirit on display, the show was a blockbuster. It was my first trivia night and a great opportunity for the Srijan team to mingle, socialize and have a little competitive fun.

The closing ceremony for Drupalcon was interesting as we were looking forward to seeing the attendee-count and the announcement for the upcoming Drupal events around the world.

We also made it a point to set aside an afternoon to catch up on some sight-seeing around Vienna.

As always, DrupalCon Vienna was a huge learning experience wrapped in loads of fun. And it has got me seriously excited about the kind of innovative solutions we can deliver with our Drupal Services.

Why Srijan Technologies?

Posted by Jyoti Singh on Mar 1, 2017 10:57:00 AM

The first thing that comes to my mind while looking for a new job is - “Should I join an MNC or go for a startup? How is the work environment? Am I going to fit into the new company or not?" The questions are evident but after a year of experience at Srijan Technologies, when someone asks me " Why Srijan Technologies?" I have convincing answers to the question.

Hi, I am Jyoti Singh, a Drupal Developer at Srijan Technologies. This is my first job and being a fresher I didn't have much hands-on experience with core technologies. So it was a new start for my career and learning too. I started as an intern with an adept mentor and support from the whole company. I began my journey with Drupal 8 and have already completed two projects successfully. And all credit goes to the work environment here at Srijan, which helped provided me with immense opportunities to grow.

Srjan does not follow the corporate culture and strict hierarchical structuring. And this makes it easier to approach anybody for help. It not only removes the boundaries of hesitation between the colleagues but also establishes an open and flexible work environment in the office. The top management is easily approachable and works closely with the people. I never felt any void between the team and the higher level employees in terms of communication and understanding.

Recognition of work is always embraced in the company. After working for six months, I got a wonderful opportunity to work onsite with a company in the Philippines, where I got to learn a lot of new things and values. And sitting at the client’s office and constantly being in touch with them every day, boosted my confidence and self-reliance.

Besides the environment, the values of the company bind the team and the clients together. The best thing that works for the company and the client is the reputation and the trust that is built by consistently delivering valuable work. Trust may sound vague, but it does build up when you provide the work without compromising on the quality.

In our projects, we try to maintain the standards by having proper planning and prioritising our tasks. When the team starts to work, they focus on providing the deliverable with the best quality, within the stipulated time frame which adds to a business value. In my opinion, streamlining of things before execution is the key to success of a project.

I have experienced great project leadership in my past projects. The client appreciated the team with the words - “Overall the performance of the team is awesome, along with their dedication and hard work”.

Srijan has been following Agile completely, which helps the business keep track of the workflow and resources. It helps the team get to the most convenient and easy way for distribution of work. Agile facilitates a Scrum Team where everyone is responsible for not just delivering their own designated tasks but accomplishing the whole work as a team together.This brings out a great team spirit and coordination within the whole team.

We are not just constrained to our domain but have a huge sphere of exploration and development. I have always been a keen learner and have always received new opportunities to learn and grow every day at Srijan . I always feel free to express my views and provide solutions whenever needed and it is always welcomed by the team. When we feel comfortable in our work environment and with people we work with, it gets reflected in our work as well.

So, "Do what you like, and Like what you Do”, it's always been a simple theory of life. And Srijan allows me to follow it in letter and spirit.
