It’s been 5 years now with Frappe.

It’s going awesome.

I always give back to the community via my services like consultation, training, content writing, and development.

FOSSPEDIA - It’s a new initiative under my startup to create more awareness and opportunities

I believe open source and innovation are the future.

I see a struggle and loss in

  1. Hiring the right candidates
  2. Equipping the team with training
  3. Reinvention without much exploration and networking
  4. Identifying the right services via freelance
  5. Comparatively fewer contributions by community members
  6. Identifying and pitching to the right clients
  7. Project failures because of improper process flow or budget constraints
  8. Project Costing
  9. Freshers are struggling to get their use case-based doubts answered properly
  10. Product Pitch, conversion, and long-term usage fails among regional clients

Many More…

It’s not a random community again.

We want to create more regional awareness.
