Hello, I am Fikri Rasyid, WordPress theme & plugin developer based in Bandung, Indonesia.
You are currently reading my ‘work’ blog where I share things I learn related to my craftmanship as WordPress theme developer. For more personal posts, you can read my personal blog on fikrirasyid.com.
- I worked at Hijapedia as WordPress theme and plugin developer from May 2014 to April 2015.
- I worked at Digital-Media Development division of BINUS University (DMD BINUS) from December 2011 to April 2014 as Front end & WordPress theme developer1.
- Prior to my gig on DMD BINUS, I worked as Freelance WordPress theme developer for several clients such as ThinkingRoom*Inc, Pasca Sarjana IKJ, DGI-Indonesia, and BINUS University. I still occasionally accept Freelance work.
I’m currently working at Elegant Themes as remote web developer.
How I Met WordPress
My story with WordPress started in 2008: I just graduated from high school, started blogging, and decided that I wanted to have my own .com blog. That’d be cool, I think. So I bought a .com domain, installed WordPress, and started hunting a theme that I can use. Unfortunately2, I was bit picky and couldn’t find a theme that pleased me. Hence, I made a theme3 that I loved using. Soon, I started developing another WordPress theme and decided to share it freely. People downloading it and suddenly I received an email which basically an offer for a paid theme development work. I accepted the offer and I’ve been developing WordPress themes (and plugins) ever since.
Let’s have a conversation and figure out how can I help you. Send me an email here.
I started working there as an outsource remote developer, considering my university student status at that time. Less then a month after accepting my bachelor degree on English Education, I moved to Jakarta to work full time at DMD BINUS ↩
Or in this sense, is fortunately ↩
