About Charanjit

I am the Team Lead and Senior Web Applications Developer at Hornbill for the Service Manager application. I build web applications and SEO friendly websites. I have a passion for building a good UI & UX and I believe in building websites that are fast and lightweight.

I love gadgets and have fallen in love with photography again. While I enjoy working with modern browsers, I've had the pleasure of supporting Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer as far back as IE 4 and IE for Mac!

You can find out more detailed information about my skills and experience by viewing my printable curriculum vitae.


I'm a full stack LAMP developer, working on both the front and back end. I write object-oriented code and work with HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, PHP, & MySQL. I enjoy working with MVC frameworks, like CodeIgniter, as a base for back-end code, and currently use vanilla JavaScript and AngularJS. Love OOCSS using the SASS CSS framework. Bourbon is pretty cool and source control rocks!

I'm a trained ScrumMaster and believe in TDD. Happy to get my hands dirty when it comes to server administration and Apache or NGINX configuration.
