While learning drupal module development for application building in last three-four months I have realized that there is nothing you can't do using drupal. You can also keep it reasonably lightweight as any other PHP framework.
But now when I am at a point when I can say this (and able to develop anything using drupal) I am realizing that most of the application work out there is in .NET and the rare projects which are in PHP are built on a framework (CodeIgniter, Symphony, CakePHP etc.). Even new projects have one of these framework as requirement.
Drupal is used strictly for website development. My question is why Drupal is yet not seen as a tool to build apps, and If you are a drupal module developer, and developing apps,
- How are you finding prospective clients (In Canada, if location matters)?
