I am who I am and I do what I do

My name is Costin Trifan (kos for friends) and I am a professional web developer from Romania. For the last 7 years I've been constantly involved in the web development part, fixing or creating websites, blogs or different scripts, helping others in need, this giving me the opportunity to work on different types of projects, from simpler to very complicated, and I have succeeded in all.

I am very proficient in PHP, MySQL, CSS, JavaScript, XHTML and very passionate about these technologies plus OOP, OOD, Design Patterns, Application Architecture, jQuery, AJAX, JSON, WordPress, and so many others, and I only provide my clients with the best solutions for their websites.

I've been called a perfectionist, so maybe this is what differentiates me from other freelancers: I never leave a client with an unfinished work. That's just the way I am.

I am also very interested in the framework development and in the last few years I have build a JavaScript framework called june-js (not online anymore) and IrisMVC, a PHP framework using the MVC architecture in which I've put my blood into, literally.

I am also a supporter of the Open Source and I contribute to it whenever I can and as much as I can. Some of my work can be found on these websites:

She defined me exactly as I am...

As part of my social activity, I can be found blogging mainly on Code Revision.
