Sparxsys bid farewell to Hemant

Submitted by ravisagar on Sat, 08/03/2013 - 07:29

We went to Sagar Ratna on 31st Aug for lunch, Hemant Gupta was working with us as an Intern in our company. He is a B-Tech (CSE) 2nd year student. He worked on "Sparxsys Issue Tracker" which is an online tool for keeping track of Issues from various clients. He used PHP/MySQL and followed MVC architecture for building this system. Though we internally use JIRA for tracking our backlog and project management but we wanted to have a system for Client also. We have been using Mantis for client issues but it is not suitable for us and we wanted something more customizable for our process.

Sparxsys new office at Netaji Subhash Place

Submitted by ravisagar on Sat, 06/22/2013 - 07:33

I am so glad to announce that we recently shifted our office from our homes to Best Sky Towers in Netaji Subhash Place. It was getting really difficult to manage lot of work with just 2 people in the team. We are growing as a company, we hired few people to be part of our team. Working from home is comfortable but when you want to do some serious work you need a workplace where you can closely interact with other members. Having an office certainly increases the work efficiency.

Here is our complete address.

Sparxsys Drupal Website Revamped Again (with Responsive Design)

Submitted by ravisagar on Sat, 09/01/2012 - 08:50

For the past few months I was working on revamping this site. There was nothing wrong with the old site and design but I just felt that I should do something different. On of the biggest reason for this revamp is the use of Omega Theme which I really find amazing theme. Not only it is responsive but it also offers lot of regions to put your content. Not only that you can also create more regions with as ease. Just an awesome theme it is and I just wanted to use it on this site. We at Sparxsys are now diving into Responsive Designs so we should have our official site responsive I guess :)

Security is a Process, not a Product. It's an ongoing process for any product or service. As we know Internet is full of spammers and hackers threatening to deface or take down your site or steal confidential data. Everyone should keep security concern in mind when administering site/blog. No doubt Drupal community has developed a solid process to help you avoid major headaches when dealing with security matters.

These days I am busy revamping website. Now we are totally focused on our own portals and we are not taking any more client projects. Though I would consider a very good challenging projects. It is a tough decision but we want to do quality work and it was getting mundane for us doing same kind of stuff. Now we are back to doing what we are supposed to do! Drupal training. Yes, now we will also work on creating free Drupal podcasts. We created some podcasts couple of months back but due to clien's projects I was not able to work on it more.
