A small introduction about my self

Abdul Wahab Kotwal - Casper

Top Rated Upwork Freelancer | Founder at Sand Box - Coworking Space for Freelancers & Startups

Hi, I'm Abdul a.k.a casper, I've been coding since I was 12. I aim to develop most interesting mobile and web apps for my clients.

I've been developing web and mobile apps for more then 5 years. I enjoy working with MEAN Stack, I'm in love with front-end development in Angular, React Native and Ionic Framework. I also work on hybrid application frameworks like Ionic, React Native, Framework7 and OnsenUI.

I use Git for code hosting. Gulp is my favorite when it comes to building apps.

I work on back-end using LAMP Stack. I'm profficiant in procedural PHP and its frameworks like yii, laravel and codeigniter. I use mySQL for databases and Sphinx search API where full-text search is required.

I do DevOps too. I can setup linux and nodejs servers and keep them running.

Other then that, I have great command on jQuery, KineticJS, HTML5, CSS3 (scss), MongoDB, Firebase APIs and Wordpress.

p.s: I am not a designer. Just the programming for me, thanks.

What my customers say about me

Jeff Callhan - KindCritic.com

Founder

Casper is by far the best freelancer I have ever worked with. His communication skills are excellent. He speaks better English than some native-speakers I've met.

He knows a bit over everything on top of his main skill set, which makes him very versatile and great for almost any project. On top of all that, he is extremely personable and easy to get along with.

You CANNOT go wrong with this guy, he does amazing work and is a top-tier professional. He is always available to talk and doesn't quit til the job is done, even after the project has been closed!

Chris Flavin - RapidCityExchange.com

Co-Founder

Honestly, I have dealt with many freelancers as you can probably see on our profile. This has been the best project we have had so far. It was priced perfect for us and the work was done better and more efficient then any other freelancer. He actually fixed other freelancers mistakes the whole time! I highly recommend Casper, honesty and hard work is hard to come by sometimes!

Abdul was great. We worked with him on a few small items, but I would recommend him to others looking for a responsive, dedicated Ionic developer.

Hector Perex Nieto - CEO Tremble Digital

ImageMagick & Image Manipulation Using PHP

For my project, I had bids for as much as 60 days. Casper not only sent a reasonable bid but he even did a working demo BEFORE being awarded the project. From there on, he tackled very complex issues like nothing. He fixed and wrote scripts like a wizard. Truly amazing. I continue to send more projects directly to Casper, I think that is the best endorsment there could be. Very happy with his work and his dedication to quality.
