Hi 👋 I am Ashar Irfan. I am a WordPress Developer and Core Contributor Ashar Irfanand I love to develop WordPress products. Recently, I have started WordPress Core Contribution and I am planning to do this more regularly in the spirit of giving back what I earn with the help of WordPress.

In 2016, I completed my Bachelors in Computer Science from University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore. Currently, I am working as a Lead Developer at WP White Security.

🚀 How it all started

At the end of my first year as an undergrad, someone asked me to develop a website for a bookstore. So I spent that summer trying to learn technologies like HTML5, CSS3, PHP, and a couple of front-end frameworks like Bootstrap and Foundation.

After the summer was over, I was determined to grow my knowledge in web development. To achieve this goal, I started looking for freelance projects. I have always found the practical approach to be very helpful for myself.

During those days of struggle, I volunteered to be the part of Organizing Team for a series of WordPress workshops. As a result, I met Ahmad Awais. Later on, I joined his company as a WordPress intern. And my journey of WordPress began.
