1. Can You Tell Us a Little About You? How Are You Related to WordPress?
Haroon Q. Raja, I’m an Information & Communication Technology consultant with a decade and a half of experience in development, design, deployment and management of both out-of-the-box as well as custom-tailored software and communication solutions.
Over the past few years, I’ve also written for some major local as well as international technology publications including Mobile Nations, XDA Portal, and AddictiveTips. My educational background in Software Engineering, Economics & Finance, and Mass Communication.
While I eventually dropped out of all three of these degrees, pursuing them proved to be quite a valuable experience by equipping me with a versatile foundation in these disciplines that are closely interrelated in today’s’ ICT landscape.
My first encounter with WordPress happened when I had the opportunity to take over the website of the college where I was studying my BSc in Economics & Finance and teaching Mathematics to A-Levels back in 2006, and I have never looked back.
It has been a decade starting with intrigue-turned-into-fascination, leading to a lot of experimentation, taking on projects as the opportunity came by and learning how to build them in the process after taking them on, and even after all this, I still feel like I’ve only scratched the surface.
Currently, I’m in the course of setting up a full-service digital agency offering end-to-end website development, administration, management, content development, and marketing services. Also, I’m also (finally) hoping to launch my digital publication this year, targeted at the modern urban geek.
