I’m a Singaporean and my favourite food are pizza and cakes. I like pizza so much that I used to work in a pizza outlet. Despite them being my favourite, I don’t always eat them. In fact, I rarely even do because I am also a nutrition enthusiasts. I believe that having balanced diet is important.
My name is Noorhalim, however most people pronounce it without the ‘r’. So it became Noohalim, which can also be pronounced as Knowhalim. Another reason for the name is, I do not think many people knows me. Most people only know me on the surface level such as Halim sits there, Halim does wordpress site, Halim is quiet/shy. So I decided that ‘Knowhalim’ is a good way to get people to know me better.
How I started Web Development
I started building a simple blog using blogger. I was fascinated with the layout you can create in blogger. So I picked up HTML. Naturally, the next skillset is CSS and all that other web languages. I started my first official website with a domain when I was 17. I was in Polytechnic and it seems like I have a lot of breaks in between my lessons. I used those time to play around with web programming and start picking up PHP language, server-side scripting. Realising how powerful PHP is, I became glued to it and used it to create my website instead of HTML/CSS.
Frontend or Backend?
I consider myself both backend and frontend developer. However, with WordPress there is little room to practice backend programming. If compares to a system manager who manages the server, I am more of frontend developer. So in order to showcase some of my backend skills, I developed WordPress plugins, custom CMS and API.
