Towkir Ahmed | JavaScript Enthusiast

Hi, I am Towkir Ahmed, an enthusiastic contributor to various open source projects.
I like to play with JavaScript and Python and I believe in openness of knowledge, privacy on the internet and security everywhere.
I try to do what I love, and I love simple, clean and creative things. And I love coffee and noodles too, especially if they are really tasty.

Experience

I have knowledge of and experience in:

HTML + CSS / LESS / SASS

I have deep understanding of Document Object Model, modern web elements and W3C standard, can turn almost any visual mock-up into valid templates. I am up to date with latest updates on HTML5 and CSS3 too.
See my completion result on Codecademy or this site is a proof :)

JavaScript

I have an advanced level JavaScript writing skill. I have raw coded JS based web applications. I am comfortable with NodeJS, jQuery and familiar with frameworks like ReactJS and AngularJS, besides, I can adapt to any latest tech.
I would like to mention JSON and AJAX here (though they are not languages, but they relate to JS)

PHP, Python, C/C++

I am not a geek of these languages but I have clear programming concepts and I can understand and write codes following these syntax.
See my completion result on Codecademy , CodeSchool and HackerRank.

Experience (starts from left)

Version Control System

I had to be a master of git and mercurial as I need to use them too often for maintaining projects.

Others

I keep a good sense of design with the knowledge of visual hierarchy, negative spacing and typography science, I keep deeper understanding on image manipulation and raster or vector types.
I compiled one of my webapp into an android app with the help of cordova. I do use gulp for compiling my css and js in large projects and write partial html for modular coding.

I am a very good user of both Windows and Linux operating system. Here are some softwares I am good at:
Photoshop Illustrator GIMP Inkscape

Auto CAD MS Office Libre Office
