Welcome to my brand new blog


First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit my brand new blog. This is Shafiq Rehman all the way from Lahore, Pakistan. I am amateur blogger, Zend Certified Engineer and working as Sr. Web Engineer in a US based company. I passed Zend Certification Exam in December 2006 and since then I was thinking to write on Web Development & Rich Internet Applications related issues such as security breaches, tips & tricks, best practices and optimization.

At last I registered this domain to fulfill my desires about the PHP, MySQL and Web Techniques. Thanks to Allah who gave me courage to help my community of web developers who are trying the excel in this diversified field of intellectuals.

Here, I will try my best to share my knowledge and experiences about web services, web security, mysql query optimizations, search engine optimization (SEO), CSS hacks, XML, XSL, XSS, XSLT and other php related topics.

    @mohsin thanks for visitng and appreciating my new blog.

    Congrats for passing the BCS degree. Mohsin is right, you should start learning PHP from php.net. I think php’s official manual is one of the best learning material for novice as well as professionals.

    Believe me php skill is like a hot cake now a days in the local as well as in the international web development market. You can verify this from Pakistan’s number one job site ROZEE.PK that there are lot of php related jobs in local software development industry.
