About Charanjit

I am the Team Lead, Senior Web Applications Developer and ScrumMaster at Hornbill for the Service Manager project. I build web applications and SEO friendly websites and have an passion for good UI & UX.

I love gadgets and have fallen in love with photography again. I prefer to work with Mac OS X, but am equally comfortable working with a PC. While I enjoy working with modern browsers, I've had the pleasure of supporting Internet Explorer all the way back to IE5.5 and IE 5 for Mac too!

Skills

I'm a full stack LAMP developer, working on both the front and back end. I write object-oriented code and work with PHP, MySQL, HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. I enjoy working with MVC frameworks, using CodeIgniter as a base for back-end code, and have recently started working with AngularJS. More than happy to work with and without jQuery and enjoy writing OOCSS using the LESS and SASS CSS frameworks. 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 configuration.
