A Poet by nature, a Developer by profession, Software Engineer by choice, and a Good Friend by chance . . . :)

Zain Baloch, Web App Developer

A love for technology. A curiosity for what’s possible. An excitement to push things forward. This is what drives me.

My name is Zain Ul Abidin Baloch, A Web Application Developer from Karachi, Pakistan. Currently working as a Senior PHP Developer at Invortex Technologies, and studying BS(CS) from DIHE.

In my 6+ years of development career I've worked with hundreds of people from all over the world, for example: USA, Italy, Germany, Russia, France, London, Australia and United Arab Emirates. I am fluent in English speaking, have experience creating small and large scaled websites, converting PSDs to HTML, developing e-commerce sites on frameworks by using various technologies like: PHP, MySQL, WordPress, OpenCart, Drupal, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, jQuery Mobile, OAuth, CodeIgniter, XML-RPC, REST Web Services, JavaScript, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Google Booking.com API's and many more..

Ever since I was little I had an interest towards computers, was curious to learn how websites and software work. So i started self learning and on 28 August, 2006 my first project came into existence, since than never stopped, because I just love my work.

I am very passionate about Web development and it is the place where I shine. I have experience in writing lines of code to craft clean, responsive, and user-friendly websites. Whether its a database design or a full featured filled web application to give you the flexibility of managing websites, I deliver it with stability and perfection. I can’t wait to work with you and build something awesome together!
