About me

I am Mansoor Khan, a Senior Software Engineer who loves the web. I'm passionate about semantic and standards based development. Efficient code, intuitive user experience, building responsive and interactive web pages has turned me into a thinking Frontend developer.

My knack of creating reusable, decoupled and non-redundant code has helped me become a better Backend developer. I strive to create backend solutions that conform to OOP/SOLID/DRY/KISS principles to make the web application more robust, extendable and secure.

I transitioned into a Backend developer in the latter half of my tenure at Virtual Diamond Boutique due to segregation of responsibilities. Since then I love working on the backend be it database tuning, speeding up APIs or making architectural changes.

In addition to my passion for the web, I also enjoy reading fiction, playing cricket/badminton and video games in whatever free time I get.

Tour management app for tour operators

Tourmonk is developed primarily for tour operators. The idea is to provide a tour management platform for operators who specialize in managing tours.

This web app lets tour operators manage their users, invite them via checkin-app, post status updates about tours on facebook and create analytical data based on the user behaviour.

Spanish Hour

Learn Spanish in 50 days

This project was done in 2 parts. First part involved re-working existing HTML5/JS game script to work on mobile devices. I used jQuery Mobile to create a mobile friendly version of the web app. It involved numerous Skype brainstorming sessions to get things right. The client was very supportive and knew exactly what he wanted. That eased the process of design and development considerably.

Next was creating the mobile version of Flashcard Blitz - a card game for learning Spanish. Again the client's co-operation proved very constructive and we managed to create a beautiful mobile version of the card game.

Both the projects were challenging in the context that there wasn't enough HTML5 support on mobile devices then. Some turnarounds and continuous dedicated work led to a successful end product.
