I started my coding adventures copy pasting code when I was administering WordPress websites. This went on for a few years and I learned to write a few lines of code snippets. It was only around two years ago when I decided to focus my efforts towards learning how to code properly. I’m grateful to readily available resources online as it ensured that the level of knowledge I can acquire would be dependent solely on my efforts and attitude rather than the lack of resources.

This blog is just a repository of my ideas and some of the interesting or useful things I learned as I go along. I love to code. I love the feeling of excitement when I run my code for the first time, the cycle of dread, irritation, frustration and relief trying to get the code to work and the feeling of accomplishment I get when it finally runs properly. I am adept with WordPress and I have built and maintained multiple sites over the years in a variety of server environments. I’ve been working a lot with WooCommerce recently and I enjoy getting the plugin to work in a variety of themes; even the once that are not considered as “WooCommerce ready”.

I prefer to host my WordPress websites on my own VPS as I’ve been playing around with Linux since college. With the increasing level of malware and spam attacks on WordPress sites, I prefer to have a more active role in the security of the server so I can easily secure my sites. Front end development in HTML/CSS/JavaScript is something I’m very effective at. But I’d like to do more back end work. I am always in the lookout for more developer work. If you have any issues with your website or if you have any features that you would like to implement but have no idea how, I may be able to help. Have a great day!
