I specialize in Drupal, PHP, HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, jQuery, JavaScript, Less|Sass, MySQL and WordPress, with a focus on delivering robust, clean, efficient and maintainable solutions.

My daughter and Me.(Nov. 1, 2015) Hello! My name is Boutros AbiChedid, and welcome to my Professional Blog. This Blog is about topics related to Drupal, WordPress, Web development and Web design. If you like to know what I can do for you, please visit my Professional Website which I tend to keep more up to date with my portfolio.

For the past 2 years and 3 months, I was the Web Developer and Web Designer for the Princeton Neuroscience Institute and for the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics.

I wear multiple hats: Web Programmer, Web designer, Content Editor, User-Friendly Website Architect, SEO, Web Accessibility Specialist, and Web performance optimizer. I consider myself to be intellectually very curious and a “life-long” learner.

Do you want to see an example of what I do? Princeton Neuroscience Institute and Lewis Sigler Institute both Drupal based Websites, are my products, from conception to completion: From back-end to front-end and everything in between, from the design stage to the LIVE and maintenance stage.

Prior to that, I was a freelance WordPress Developer, Web developer, Web designer and Software Engineer running my Web development company. I specialized in building WordPress Websites and other-type of Websites with functionality. My Websites are creative and built on solid technological foundations and compliance considerations. I develop Websites with great aesthetics and pure simplicity. A successful website attracts its users to further explore it. I also did custom WordPress coding.

With 10+ years of Web development and Web design experience, and an additional 5+ years of traditional programming and software development, I understand Internet business and have solid Web programming and designing skills (HTML5, XHTML, Flash, PHP, CSS, JavaScript, ActionScript, ColdFusion, Photoshop, SQL, MySQL). Furthermore, I am knowledgeable of the newest design standards suggested by the W3C, the standards under the Federal Section 508 guidelines, and the requirements by the ADA. As such, I design websites to comply with both the client´s needs and the required standards and guidelines.
