About the Author
Bhavin Patel, one of the most innovative Drupal authors today, began his career as a software programmer for Applitech solutions, India. He continued to impress those around him with his hard work, dedication, and managerial skills, climbing the corporate ladder at a young age, working for multinational biggies like Reliance Communications and Airtel. He has held a senior managerial position at Bharti Telecom. However, he always had an inner call for programming. In 2008, he quit his corporate career to pursue the love of his life. Since then, he has been working as a Freelance Technology Consultant/Web Architect in Toronto, Canada. Swept away with his passion for Drupal, he acquired skills in core modules and long-established programs wrought by human desires and faith. Today, he successfully heads his own firm, Weboye Inc., in Toronto. Along with the feel of technology, Bhavin has a penchant for open source: a transparent development process. He strongly believes that with open source one can reduce the speculative outlay and costs involved in software trials. Moreover, as a true wonder of open source, if something exceeds the skill of the staff, a user may buy the services of a vendor, allowing risks on peripheral expense.
