About Wasseem


Howdy! I'm Khayrattee Wasseem and I have 7 years of Professional Experience in Web Development. I have a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology, namely a B.Sc (Hons) IT. I graduated from the University of Mauritius / CDAC-School of Advanced Computing. I'm thus a Software Engineer by profession. So far I have been working full-time with some awesome companies down the years.

I have a strong passion for PHP - a web programming/scripting language. It's with no surprise that I feel a lot of happiness in being part and parcel of The PHP Community (The world wide PHP family). To pursue this enthusiasm, I founded Seven PHP aka 7php.com where I convey frequent PHP interviews with prominent members and entities of the PHP ecosystem. I strongly believe in #CommunityMatters and #CommunityWorks !!!

Client Testimonials


1. Testimonial by Liora from Neopost France - Year 2014

Original testimonial was in French (See below for english translation)

Bonjour,
Je suis chef de produit de la Business Unit Neofournitures (vente de consommables de Neopost France). Dans le cadre de mes fonctions je travaille notamment à l’amélioration et à l’administration du site e-commerce neofournitures. Wasseem a travaillé sur le projet de reconstruction et d’amélioration du site www.neofournitures.fr.

Dès le départ, Wasseem a su faire preuve de réactivité et a compris nos attentes en terme de customisation mais aussi d’amélioration du parcours client. Il a su être à la fois force de proposition et en même temps a pu exécuté de la manière la plus complète et exacte nos différentes demandes d’évolutions . Par ailleurs, il a également eu un rôle pédagogique en expliquant de manière complète les différents impacts sur le site ou en décrivant les fonctionnalités des différents modules installés pour pouvoir me permettre de les administrer au mieux par moi –même.

Tout au long du projet, Wasseem est devenu un atout primordial à la bonne réussite des évolutions et la mise en place d’une expérience client beaucoup plus fluide. Enfin, il a toujours rendu l’ensemble des délivrables en temps et en heure avec un respect des deadlines et a su se montrer réactif et présent lors des demandes diverses de corrections ou pour les différentes mises en production tout au long de l’année.

Enfin, de manière personnelle, il est très agréable de travailler avec lui et nous avons construit une véritable équipe « eshop » même en travaillant dans des pays différents et en échangeant essentiellement par mail.

Cordialement

Translation in English

Hello,
I am the Product Manager of the Business Unit Neofournitures (sale of consumables Neopost France). As part of my duties, my work entails the improvement and administration of the neofournitures e-commerce site. Wasseem worked on the project for 'reconstruction and improvement' of the site www.neofournitures.fr.

From the outset, Wasseem has demonstrated responsiveness, understood our expectations in terms of customization and also in improving the customer experience. He has been influential in his propositions and has been able to execute our different demands in the most precise and complete manner. In addition, he also had an educational and analytical role by explaining fully the different impacts on the site and by describing the functionality of the various modules installed in order to allow me to administer them to the best by myself.

Throughout the project, Wasseem has become a vital asset to the success of the site's evolution and the implementation of a more fluid customer experience. He has always made all deliverables in a timely manner with respect for deadlines. He has shown keen responsiveness and presence towards various requests for modifications and updates, including the 'go live' process, throughout the year.

Finally, on a personal stance, it is very pleasant to work with him and we have built a true "eshop" team although we work in different countries and communicate mostly by exchanging emails.

Cordially
Liora LEVY
Product Manager neofournitures.
