jthoma 

Started my career as a professional coder with the first project in dBase in 1987, and there was a career twist towards the end of 1989. Through 1997 I was more or less in the publishing industry and has worked in Alfajr UAE with the National Pink Pages and Oil and Gas Directory. Again a career twist took me through computer assembling, software, and trouble shooting. And towards 1998 got introduced to linux, system administration and by 2000 was into supporting cyber cafes to use linux on servers. Then again dropped into doing free lance jobs on freelance sites

    “While other freelancers will give you scripted answers such as Yes I can do it, JTHOMA pays attention to project details, he will scrutinize your requirements, assess the feasibility of your project, tell you the technical challenges if any and the best way to handle them. I had no doubt he is the best guy to hire among many freelancers with good feedback. He is a first class Pro.”
