About Me

I'm a self-taught web developer. I discovered a passion for programming in my childhood and have continued to develop this skill to this day. It is my main source of income but rarely a job. Love to work in teams, face challenging problems and feel that I am making a difference. Always looking for opportunities to grow and progress. Besides software, my hobbies include squash, fitness and nights on the town.

Education

All of what I have learned is self-taught from various resources such as books, online, personal and professional experience.


Having been developing software for over 8 years now, I've come to learn that software engineering is far from just "software". Great development lies at the intersection of technical, communication, management & people skills. And great developers utilise these skills to get the best outcome from any situation.


And, in such a diverse and rapidly evolving field, to be proficient, one must be willing to continually learn and grow throughout their career.

Projects

DMS

The DMS is a next-generation CMS and application framework developed for PHP7. This project was borne out the struggle of the agency workload where every project has unique requirements that would conflict with many of the existing CMS platforms. Inspired from concepts of DDD and SOLID software design, the DMS has been a sound platform for developing a variety of applications including E-Commerce, SAS and more.
