Hi, I’m Firdaus, also known from my alias, fsylum. I am a full-stack web developer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I specialize in writing fast and scalable web applications, where I am mostly involved in the backend side of things using PHP. I’ve been working mostly with WordPress for my whole professional career with a heavy focus on Laravel for the past few years.
It all started during my university years when I was first exposed to web development. I was trying to find a simple solution to share
movies and tv series collections lecture notes and learning materials easily with everyone else. Back then, I was using hfs, and it comes with a fairly simple directory listing page, so I started tinkering with it to make it looks nicer.
One thing leads to another, and here we are, almost 10 years later, I am still passionate about web development as ever.
What I am currently up to
For the year 2021, I am
- Learning docker to replace my Vagrant-based setup for local development.
- Developing two developer-focused WordPress plugins.
- Developing one Laravel-specific package
I am available on following platforms:
