Skills

My passion and goal is to always succeed.

Software Testing

Software testing is the process of verifying a system with the purpose of identifying any errors, gaps or missing requirement versus the actual requirement. Software testing is broadly categorised into two types - functional testing and non-functional testing.

HTML and CSS

HTML (the Hypertext Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are two of the core technologies for building Web pages. HTML provides the structure of the page, CSS the (visual and aural) layout, for a variety of devices. Along with graphics and scripting, HTML and CSS are the basis of building Web pages and Web Applications.

PHP (basic)

PHP is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development. Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.

Javascript (basic)

JavaScript is a scripting or programming language that allows you to implement complex features on web pages

Wordpress

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system written in PHP and paired with a MySQL or MariaDB database. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system, referred to within WordPress as Themes.

Commitment to Customer Excellence

Customers should always be at the forefront of decisions and service delivery. Customer excellence involves responding to queries promptly, offering as much information as possible and providing products or services that customers value.

Speaking and Listening Skills

Professionals must be able to communicate effectively when speaking to people. My ability to demonstrate that I can communicate complex information to a non-technical audience is also an added value. In any verbal communication, it is of utmost importance to speak carefully and clearly so that you are easily understood.

Problem Solving

Solving problems is a fundamental skill that all employees should possess. It could range from something as simple as addressing a staff shortage through to something much more technical, such as overcoming a major stumbling block during the course of a project. This is where I flourish and become an asset to the successful end result to any problem.
