My name is Moe Loubani and I’m a web developer from Waterloo, Ontario in Canada.
I’ve been using WordPress since 2007, for the first 3 years as a blogger and marketer and since then as a developer.
When I’m not writing plugins and themes for WordPress you can find me working with and reading about the latest front end and back end frameworks. Right now my favorites are the MEAN stack (nodeJS is really awesome) and when I’m writing PHP web apps I really like Laravel.
I have experience with all sorts of different and cool things in WordPress, here are a few:
http://tigercreative.com – a website for a design/creative agency in California, built with WordPress and Beaver Builder (a page builder) to make it easier to edit. Based on PSD designs given to me by the client
http://gasprices.caa.ca – this is a gas prices website for CAA where I was responsible for getting the gas prices from some files on an FTP server, importing them onto the local server and then taking the data inside and adding that to a database. Then every night a second table is made that is like a pivot table and contains all the data needed throughout the day (things like getting lowest prices and highest prices for each city was becoming slow in terms of query speed). All of that is then stored in WordPress transients to speed things up even more.
http://www.nicolajohnson.ca – A basic website and blog built using the Beaver Builder page builder for easier editing by the end client.
http://moeloubani.com/dev/bruno – A sample website that uses my WordPress IDX/RETS plugin to import properties from a local real estate listing agency. The plugin is still in development – I work on it from time to time and release it for free as a personal project and it can be found here: https://github.com/moeloubani/wptrebrets
http://gridagency.com – Made a plugin to allow people to choose pictures to add to a ‘lightbox’ which they then could have emailed to them or download in the form of an automatically generated PDF with the site branding on it
http://garotsmedia.com – Created a system to allow people to come and sell their goods and get a price based on an algorithm which takes information from the Amazon API like the amount available, current price, list price, age and more and turns that into a price
http://relocationdirectory.com.au – A custom directory built for a company in Australia. I created everything here after starting with another theme and deciding that it needed a custom job and not a tweak of something that was already out there.
I also have lots of experience with integrating different APIs as well, for example:
- Amazon S3
- Amazon EC2
- Amazon DynamoDB
I’m especially interested in fun and different things, things that other developers have tried and couldn’t do and just generally out of the box ideas for WordPress.
Went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly with a website transfer to a PHP 7.0 compatible server. Thanks Moe!
Moe was very efficient, thorough and easy to work with. He was able to present simple and smart options for my tasks and stayed on track with timing. I would highly recommend Moe for other tasks and plan to reach out again as well.
Exceptional communication and met our needs in a timely manner.
Moe built an outstanding site and developed trust with us early by communicating clearly and often. We will work with Moe again!
Moe has done a terrific job on the redesign of my website! He was courteous, knowledgeable, and professional, and worked in a timely manner. My website is database driven with over 5000 records so this was not just a simple update but a complete redesign and database import. I look forward to continuing working with Moe in the future! Highly recommend!
