I am glad to have you here at my blog section and would like to introduce myself and xenforo development services that i offer.

My Education:

After graduating in 2015 with Bachelors degree in Computer Software Engineering from Comsats institute of information technology Lahore, (NO.1 IT institute in Pakistan) and later completed my BS (Hons) in Software Engineering from Lancaster University (UK). I started working as a web developer at a local software development company. When i was a student i enjoyed coding in C programming language and Java. I coded many small code snippets,solved complex algorithms and participated in numerous coding challenges. I enjoyed programming with both C and Java, before i started coding in PHP professionally for web development. Because Php has Syntax similar to  C programming, i mastered it in very less time. I did my FYP in university using MS .Net framework and i already had good knowledge about Web and HTTP.  Although i had low overall CGPA but i was happy with my final degree and i had  enough coding skills to land a high paying job as a web developer in 2015.


How i got into Xenforo Development

I was offered a high paying job as a php web developer at a company based in  Pakistan. I got chance to work with expert web developers and programmers and real world applications. Initially my Job description was to code some small modules/plugins for WordPress and Xenforo. I  got a chance to work with servers and how to manage the Apache servers. With in 6 months i grasped the concepts of web development and how the things actually work. But i was Hungry to learn new things and technologies switched my job to learn new skills related to Websites and web development frameworks.

I switched the company in 2016 and started working as a front-end developer in a startup. I think working in startups initially helps in learning much more than Multi nationals where you are limited to work only on specific stack. That was a small company although my main focus was to become a backend developer, learning these front end technologies was a plus point. I knew it is important to learn front-end development for better future. After 6 months i realized i am good enough to code the websites from scratch.

In the mid of 2016 i joined a new company. I got a job as mid level php developer. I got chance to code complete real world custom web applications from scratch. I coded many advanced websites using web frameworks like CodeIgniter, Laravel and Zend. At the same time I started working as a freelance xenforo developer at various freelancing sites like Upwork, Freelancer and Fiverr. 

Me as a freelance xenforo developer

I started working as a freelance xenforo developer in 2017  and have been coding Php based web applications and Plugins for WordPress and Xenforo for Agencies and individual clients.  After i realized i can generate enough revenue working as a freelance web developer i decided to quit the job. I had good profiles at various freelancing platforms that made it easy for me to get good and high paying remote jobs.  I had enough knowledge and skills to create web applications using CMS like WordPress and Forums/Communities using software’s like Xenforo, Vbulletin and IpBoard etc. When i started working as a freelancer in the web development niche, there was a lot of competition and i continuously learned new things and technologies like Laravel, React , VueJs ,Solidity and Blockchain etc. I keep myself updated by learning new technologies and i master new things in order to provide best solutions to the clients who need a reliable remote web developer. I can be your next freelance web developer if you need any of the following services.

I currently offer complete services related to XenForo for the individuals and companies who outsource their work. I am not often first choice of the people because i work through this Blog and Freelancing sites most of the time. But i have been last choice of people who have worked with me for their custom development needs.

Build to last

Easy to Manage

Clean Code

Fast and Secure

Responsive Design


XenForo Monthly Maintenance

As a XenForo Programmer i have been receiving many requests from different Forum Admins to fix the unexpected issues that happen to their forum. Some board owners try to keep the things simple and hire someone for monthly changes and health check or Banner changes etc. If you are looking for someone to work with you on a fixed monthly rate for bug fixing and maintenance. I am available to help you with that. I can co-operate with your server staff and moderators to keep your forum running without any issue.

Migrations From Other Forums

Xenforo staff provides great customer support and their software is secure and simply great. This is what made hundreds of forums switch from Vbulletin etc to XenForo. Although, XenForo provides default importers that can be used to import data from some famous forums. Still unexpected results are possible and it is recommended to go with a professional to handle your migration. I can handle your forum migration to xenforo using best practices to make sure nothing is missed and so that you do not lose your seo efforts.

XenForo Upgrades

With the launch of XF2 many boards have already improved their forum technology by upgrading to xenforo 2. As an experienced XenForo developer i can help you make this move with proper analysis. I make sure to upgrade forums by taking complete backups and check the addons that would not be compatible with the newest version. If some important addon goes incompatible i can either code it from scratch for you or upgrade those to match with the version that you are upgrading to. I have also converted many addons to XenForo 2 that were being used at the XF1 but the author is not available to upgrade

XenForo Styles Development

I can create amazing XenForo 2 Styles matching your home page or other Content management system like wordpress that you are already using along with your Forum. Recently i have coded some custom styles for Some big boards that are available for demo in my blog’s section. Like XenForo addons, for the Development of custom themes and styles a developer needs good understanding of XenForo template engine and the idea of template modifications and template variables. The styles that i create are always done using xenforo coding standards and proper template modifications where needed.

XenForo Addon Customization

While there are already many custom addons being made by companies and programmers available at resources section. Still most of the time board admins need some additions or customizations to match their needs. Most of the xenforo developers do not like to work on existing addons because it is difficult to follow the code logic of the original author. I think i have spent 40 percent of my development time in past 2 years customizing existing addons. It helped me to know about new things and techniques that developers follow.

Custom Addon Development

As a XenForo developer i can code custom addons following the standards set by XF team. While there are many issues with most of the custom solutions like direct SQL queries in the controllers, Poorly designed Entities and Repositories. I always make sure to code secure and lightweight addons for the best performance and page speed. The best results can only be achieved if the developer knows about the database structure and how XenForo class proxy system works. I have alot of experience under my belt to code a perfect xenforo addon based on your requirements.

Haseeb put in a lot of hour with us to get our forum implemented. He was always willing to revisit glitches and put in more time to get the job done. Quite patient through frustrating issues. He is surely a very good freelancer.

Haseeb did a great job. There were a number of unknowns and changes in this project. Haseeb worked through those changes, was very responsive and stood behind his work. If there were any issues that found later, he fixed those issues quickly and without charge . I would hire again.

Yes, I can speak and write english well, it is important for clients to hire a freelancer who can communicate well and can understand the project requirements. I am fluent in both spoken and written english.
Yes, i have a github profile, i have not participated in a lot of opensource projects but i have an active github profile and most of the repositories are private. But i can show the source code and portfolio of the work that i did for clients as a freelance developer.
I have active and very good profiles at freelance platforms like Upwork, Freelancer etc. I prefer to work using one of those platforms so that both client and me are safe when accepting the projects, With my long term clients i have been using Paypal,Wise and Payoneer etc.

It depends upon the nature of project and what is my schedule, Sometimes i can manage around 8 to 10 hours a week because mostly i am busy working with existing clients and projects. But if i find some interesting project or idea, i can make myself available in a week or two to work full time on your project.
