My web development journey kicked off when a friend of mine needed some help with his website. I still remember the pain that I went through while trying to change text and some images. However, I was completely mesmerised by the whole notion of instructing web browser to do as how i would instruct it .

It was around 2008 when i decided to pursue web development as a career. In contrast to lot of great self taught programmers, I took the traditional route of going to university and did my B.Sc ( Hons ) in Applied Computing. Since then I have never looked back and have only moved forward.

Programming and any thing web related is my passion and I have put endless hours in  acquiring the required theoretical and practical knowledge to get where I am.

My goal is to sum up the knowledge I have acquired over the years; break it down and teach others in simple English, hoping that some body out there might find it beneficial.
