Hi, I’m Firdaus, also known from my alias, fsylum. I am a web engineer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I currently work for Human Made.

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.
