Projects

I love creating website that works. I'm passionate in digital marketing and within the 3 months of my time in Nepal, I've accomplished quite a few of works from big to small organizations in different fields.

MyBetterWeb - This is a minimalist website for my own company that is created with Ruby templating language + Javascript for animation.
Usoft Store - This online shop is made with Shopify. I've experience in Ruby so designing made so fun for this task. This website is going to be the second largest online shop in Nepal after Daraz.
Trekking Top Nepal - This is my first PHP job after so many years. My job is to transform a travel agency's website into a more attractive one with online booking function. I also provide Paid Ads Marketing for them.
ShiShu Tours - This is a young travel agency company that hasn't put up any website. I created them a fresh & clean responsive website with online booking capibility. Yes, this is my second attempt on PHP!
Thapa Coffee - I met the coffee farmer during my hike to a local village. The plan didn't goes well and we almost fall down from the landslide. I created the website in the village, the contents are real story and pictures he told me along the trip. This website is written in Go.
Ultranet Communication - I was searching for internet wifi and that's when I met them. I created a simple one page website (written in Go) to them and also implemented online banking and ewallet payment gateway to their backend (Wordpress & WooCommerce).
Khimyan Curry - Khimyan curry is a renowed curry paste maker in Malaysia. They has a very long history and they also have the best curry in town. I revamped the website in 2016 and this website also got nominated and won the Malaysia Website Awards in 2017.

Contribution & Awards

Besides being one of the many code contributor to brew.sh, I also helped contribute some simple codes on my own gist on github.

That's my second time winning the awards after MWA 2016 in E-Commerce category. It's my business website that won the Commercial category this time.
It was my glorious moment to get the awards for the Website that I made. Besides for the website design and seo strategy, the chatbot that I created to automate online order is the main reason I was chosen.
After getting tired of technical limitation when editing video, I did some research and summarized the ffmpeg command line into a gist. No more headache when editing videos.
Tiny Javascript code for disable right-click of mouse, F12 key, and save key combinations on page without jeopardy the design of your website.
A minimal Ruby code for embedding videos from Vimeo using a simple Liquid tag without installing jekyll plugin.
We all know that chatbot is the new trend in online business. Chatfuel is a great platform builded by Hubspot.com but somehow they don't allow custom message on the Messenger Chat Plugin. So I make this plugin for chatfuel users easily integrate their Messenger codes and the plugin I made to get a custom welcome message.
