I'm an Experienced Coder with varying levels of skills in Web Software Development on LAMP stack (PHP/MySQL), Codeigniter, Wordpress, Node JS, Meteor JS, JavaScript/CoffeeScript, Web Frontend Design, NOSQL (Mongo DB), Bash Shell Scripting, etc.

I am versed with Version Control Systems like Git and Bazaar.

In general, I try to keep abreast of the latest trends in relevant technologies.

I've been working almost exclusively on Linux systems for the last decade or so.

I'm idealistic about Free & Open-source Software, contributing often to such projects as coder, documenter and advocate.
