Instructor Biography

Tamal Anwar, Web Designer, Developer

Hi this is Tamal Anwar Chowdhury (তমাল আনোয়ার চৌধুরী), better known online just as Tamal Anwar.

I’m a freelance web designer in my late 20s and I am based in Bangladesh.

I am a blogger, I wrote about blogging and internet marketing from 2008 to 2015 at one of my early blogs.

I learned how to design websites in 2004 and published my first website in 2007.

After that I moved onto blogging. I used a free blog and made money from it. I then created a new blog to share the things I learned so far. That website was BlogKori Dot Com. I received some requests from my blog readers to help them with their websites. That’s when I started working as a freelance web designer.

After so many years I worked on more than 100 website projects. Learned tons of stuff (still learning) and applying them to build modern and functional websites.

At the moment I do web design, I build custom themes for WordPress, I write articles in this website and make video training on Udemy.
