I deployed wide range of Linux servers, implemented hardening features, high availability for small to medium enterprises.

I successfully implemented a scalable multi-branch phone/online based customer support service solution using off-the-shelf hardware and ASTERISK, Linux based the most popular open source IP-PBX sever, surprisingly at a very low cost. As part of this project, I also developed a web-based customer complaint management system integrated with ASTERISK that facilitates management to make intelligent business decision. This is a ticketing system for customer support having features of call recording, call escalation and monitoring. Moreover, I have deployed several Linux based (using Asterisk, AsteriskNOW, Elastix, FreePBX, Vicidial, GoAutodial and some mid-level wed developement) mini call center and customer support solution in home and abroad. I have some experience in web development and Smart Metering (AMR, AMI) System also. I developed the customer complaint management system using CodeIgniter PHP MVC framework & MySQL and integrated with Asterisk telephony engine. I have developed some Joomla based website also.

I am a Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) with expertise on Red Hat Enterprise Clustering and Storage Management (RH436) and completed Red Hat Server Hardening (RH413)and Red Hat Enterprise Deployment, Virtualization, and Systems Management (RH401) training.

Pakistan - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 18 - Portfolio: 19

My name is khan Muhammad I have 7 year web development experience .I am a highly skilled software developer and entrepreneur with extensive experience in cutting edge web technologies. I've worked closely with business owners in the past as they try to satisfy their business's IT needs, and I know that many business owners don't know what they need to know or ask to get the right person for an IT job. If this sounds like you, here's what you should be looking for: 1) Business Point You don't just want a code monkey to write whatever you think of. You need someone who can help you refine raw ideas into mature results. 2) Not just a slicer There are two types of PHP developers. So called "slicers", which are good at coding themes, and real application developers. For a very simple static site you only need a slicer; but, if you want that site to do anything (eCommerce, Facebook or Twitter integration, mobile, chat, customer support, content management, forums,Application Site,) you need an application developer. 3)Know the state of the art If your web project depends on technology, you need someone you can trust to follow the technical landscape and make sure you keep up. 4) Security Ask your developer (or slicer) how to hack a site. If they don't have a detailed answer, they're leaving your site vulnerable to the attackers who do. You need a developer who knows how to make sure that your site is safe. 5) Speed is relative Not all developers work at the same speed. Some developers can do in a day what another developer would do in a week. I'm more expensive, but I'm fast. fast development technique. 6) Build it for the future Most developers can write code that will get the job done for you today, but sometimes that code is so messy that when you want to expand it in a couple of months it is literally better to trash the whole thing and start over. A good developer will write clean maintainable code, and they'll watch where the product is headed to ensure that you're set up for the changes you'll need later. 7) SEO Most developer don’t care for Seo of site . For any website Seo is most impotent factor to increase number of user.
