I have previously worked as a programmer for building websites based on Joomla and WordPress and I also have expertise on data entry projects, photo editing, logo and banner designing. I have worked as an assistant for a local company and I have proved myself on various projects ranging from programming to system modelling and circuit designing. I am skilled in software development, web development,web programming,database management etc.My current focus is on web based applications development. I firmly embrace the fact that agility and flexibility are the keys to creating innovative technology. I will offer the following services through the oDesk platform. 1) Mobile Application Development (Android and iOS) 2) Web Development & Design 3) Application Maintenance and Support Skill sets:-- I am experts in the following technologies/platforms: Platforms: PHP, HTML,CSS, CSS3, Objective C, HTML5, Blue java, Cocoa touch,Android SDK,All iOS frameworks like UI Kit, MAP kit, System config, Core Graphics, Foundation frameworks and also Phone gap e.t.c CMS Platforms:-- WordPress, Joomla, Magento and also Drupal.

I design websites that gives you the best ROI. Hand Coded and cross browser compatibility :-- I hand code every website design from scratch. This not only gives you a unique site, which helps the web site to achieve high rankings in search engines but also gives you an error free site design when viewed in different browsers such as Mozilla, Netscape, Internet Explorer and others. W3C Markup Validation :-- W3C Markup validation is one of the most vital aspects of a search engine friendly website. W3C Markup validation ensures that a site is indexed quickly by search engines; it also greatly improves the chances of a website achieving high rank on search engines. All website designed by me are W3C compliant. Search Engine Indexing :-- Proper layout techniques, such as having a site map and executing a proper and planned linking strategy throughout the website will not only get the pages indexed easily, but in some cases proper linking will get the much needed ‘votes' towards the important pages on the website and help increasing their Page Rank. Conversion Rate:-- A good site layout is all about converting the visitors into customers. By making an easy to use, uncluttered and user-centric layout, the probability factor of leading the customer to into making the ‘critical move', whether it is signing up to the newsletter, filling a survey or buying a product increases exponentially. less

    Simple HTML5 Webpage plus login access to searchable / sortable table
    Sourav is clearly a bright PHP programmer, and we were impressed with his initial feedback and response for how we would do our project and why doing things in one way versus another. He showed us examples of two earlier websites he developed, and we hired him with the expectation that he should easily be able to put together a new one for us using two parts he had already developed for the other sites before. Only AFTER hiring him did he tell us he could not re-use any of the code/work he did on his previous websites, even though these were for simple features like logging in and displaying a table, and that he would have to re-write everything from scratch. Our job headline included a requirement for a searchable/sortable HTML table, but he later asked for additional money to do this part so we agreed to drop this requirement. Along the way we found it very difficult to communicate with him and get clear updates on the timeline. He finally did send us a draft of his code, after being asked several times, but it was far from complete lacking any tables or working login feature, missed important explanations of things like where to configure callback URLs, and had leftover text in a foreign language that needed to be cleaned up. We believe Sourav has the potential to succeed on better managed PHP projects and encourage him to get his next clients more comfortable with expectations and time management early on.

    Mobile Web Site Designer Gurus Wanted!
    Waste of time and money, yes site is responsive but my site is in ruins and I lost all my Google rankings, quote form, translation, footer and tables doesn´t work as it used to and site is a mess. Need to revert everything and wasted my money and time.
    Freelancer's Response
    Very unprofessional client. Not clear of what he wants. He said to make the site responsive after achieving the target he says to do data entry and other plugin fixes. After mailing him and explaining him the problems over and over again he didn't understand. Of course the he is not at all technical. He has no idea on web development. I would suggest good freelancers to not make the same mistake I did by taking his project.
