He's familiar with a wide variety of tech—most anything related to his area of expertise—and has worked with clients from several fields. His niche area of expertise though lies in developing with PHP, Yii, Yii 2, My SQL and anything related to WordPress (themes, plugins, and HTML to WP conversions).

This project was delivered in 2015.

This is a Yii-based custom programming website. The website's core idea is to allow the institute to generate healthy meals according to the Australian Government Standards for various age groups of students.

Here, the institute or any organization can register with PayPal. This membership lasts for a year, and they can generate their weekly or daily meals and have their nutrition report based on their meal ingredients.

They can also have a shopping list generated based on meal ingredients.
