My name is Adeel Sarfraz and I am a web developer based in Karachi Pakistan.
I did my graduation in Computer Engineering from Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology (SSUET). After completing my graduation in 2000 I started my career by joining a US based software house and developed my first website in Classic ASP. I was one of the first people who tested .NET 1.0 beta on Windows NT 4. I got to learn more when .NET 1.0 was launched with Windows 2000 and migrated a website from Classic ASP to ASP.NET. I then worked on developing web applications using JSP and Servlets and got to know about Java.
I got my first taste of open source when I installed PHP 4.3 on my Windows 98 machine. I used it to connect to Informix for a leading telecom giant in the USA and created a reporting application for them. PHP has become the technology which small to medium sized companies are turning to and I don’t see this stopping in the near future.
While providing technical assistance to a company selling herbal products online in the USA I came across search engine optimization. I learned on the job and effectively increased the sales of the website. Though I later switched jobs to become the Manager Development Department for a UK based software house I still try to keep up to date with the latest SEO trends.
I have also authored open source plugins/modules for Zen Cart which are available online.
