I’m Niraj Shah, a PHP Developer working in London, UK. Thanks for visiting my site – please take a look around and let me know what you think. I love web development and have been doing it for many years now. I also enjoy blogging in my spare time (I have several blogs), watching movies and playing video games.
I have a BSc in Computer Science (1st Class Honors) and a MSc in Advanced Computing (Distinction), both from King’s College London. I received my BSc in 2006 and my MSc in 2007.
I’m experienced in social application development (Facebook,
MySpace, Bebo, Google+ and Twitter), WordPress, and hybrid mobile application (Cordova / PhoneGap, Trigger.io). My PHP framework of choice is currently Laravel – it’s what I’ve been using for the last few years to build bespoke applications and APIs.
You can check out some of my work in my Online Portfolio.
Key skills include:
- PHP / MySQL development
- Extensible Markup Language (XML) and Really Simple Syndication (RSS)

For the last few years, I have been running my own company, Nueta Ventures Limited, developing applications and websites for a number of clients. My company portfolio can be found here, and covers just some of the projects I’ve developed (confidential projects are not listed).
