PHP (Procedural and OOP), NodeJS, ExpressJS, TypeScript, MySQL, MongoDB, and Git are my main tools.
Why I am still attached with PHP, is because I used it for WordPress custom themes development, to fulfill my clients need.
I used Slim (PHP Framework), for REST API development.
According to my experience, it is very important for every web developer to have good knowledge of Search Engine Optimization. To keep my clients happy it was important for me to learn SEO(Search Engin Optimization). Today I am expert in On-Page SEO (Internal linking, Anchor text, Headlines, Titles and Meta tags, XML Sitemap, Navigation, Comments, Content, Regularity, Length, Improving click through rates, Meta description research, Authorship, Schema markup, Images) and Off-page SEO (link building, Social media, Keyword research, Directories)
For whatever reason no hobby outside web development sticks to me. Maybe because I started programming as a hobby and never looked back, next thing I knew was doing it professionally. I’m all into it and I take part in other activities very sporadically.
If I am free I will reading somehting about history, because studying history enables us to develop better understanding of the world in which we live. Building knowledge and understanding of historical events and trends, especially over the past century, enables us to develop a much greater appreciation for current events today.
