Ihtisham Zahoor Profile Picture

Hello, I am what comes out after mixing introversion with a tad bit of perfectionism. I am Ihtisham Zahoor – a highly-driven Full-Stack Web developer in the making.

As an enthusiast of the Free & Open Source Software Initiative. I love to contribute back to open-source communities like
WordPress via writing, speaking and helping organize meetups.

I have had the privilege to write open-source software for the WordPress platform as well as contributed to the WordPress core. That being said, I enjoy a great deal with my involvement in the WordPress community. I have the privilege to speak as well as help organize the monthly Meetups and the annual WordCamps. The official WordPress Foundation has its back behind these events.

Back in 2019, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to help start the Elementor Community Islamabad Chapter – which organizes monthly Elementor Meetups. Yet that is not it, I have met some really humble people over the years, whom I proudly call my besties, all that made possible by the open-source WordPress community.

A Little Background

I have always had a knack for technology. Now, I still remember the summer of 2006 when I brought a PC for the first time. I would try to install Windows XP many times so to make Windows work smoothly but without any luck. It was those stubborn viruses, which would only be removed by running a virus scan, not a fresh Windows install, something I figured out later.

Although, it took me another decade – right after my MBA in 2015 with a specialization in finance – to turn my curiosity for technology into a passion after I stumbled upon web technologies from the development perspective. It is when I started learning WordPress while still working in an administrative and support capacity at an organization in my hometown.

Moving Forward

Ever since I have been exploring the big and sometimes scary yet enchanting web development profession. I have gained extensive knowledge about web technologies especially the WordPress platform and its ecosystem.

In the future, I look forward to exploring more about PHP frameworks like Laravel, the JavaScript ecosystem, and the Cloud Native leading to a path of a Full-Stack Developer.

That’s it for now folks. I hope you enjoyed reading about my journey as much as I enjoyed writing about it. If you are concerned about your privacy on this website, kindly read the privacy policy here. Thank you for stopping by, visit often.
