Looking for a Front-End Developer?

I can help you build your projects.

I work with startups, businesses, design teams and agencies to build fast, responsive and usable website front-ends. I have a lot of experience creating data visualizations and can build anything from interactive infographics to fully fledged data visualization dashboards.

If you're looking for a front-end developer to implement your designs, feel free to send me an email at chafic.najjar@gmail.com. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

I can help you with:

  • Front-end web development
    I can work with designers to turn designs into performant, responsive and standards-compliant websites.
  • Data visualization
    I can work with information architects to turn data into compelling visuals.

I can't help you with:

  • Designing user interfaces
    I'm not a designer and I don't create mockups or wireframes.
  • Back-end web development
    Back-end code is outside my area of expertise.

FAQ

Some questions you might have:

1. Where are you based?
I'm based in Byblos, Lebanon — one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. From there, I work with local and long-distance clients. If you'd like to fly me over to your company office to work on your project, send me an email and I'll be happy to discuss it further.
2. How long have you been freelancing?
I have been freelancing as a front-end web developer for two years. I started during my last year in college.
3. What is your hourly rate? Do you accept fixed rates?

My non-negotiable hourly rate is $16 and I bill weekly. I also accept fixed rates and require a non-refundable 50% deposit before starting a project and the remaining 50% once your project is completed.

I bill on web development work as well as time spent communicating with you, and make sure to include everything that was billed in an invoice.

4. What contract will I be signing?
You are required to sign a Contract of Works, unless you provide me with your own contract which I will most likely edit. Our contract will outline the agreed hours, cost of the project as well as the scope and timeline. I will sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) but for a cost of 15% on top of any agreed hours.
5. Do you sign non-compete clauses?
Yes, but I will only sign a non-compete clause if it is specific enough as to not hinder too much my ability to work with other clients. Signing a non-compete clause carries a cost of 15% on top of any agreed hours.
6. What browser support do you recommend for my website?

I strongly recommend only supporting the following browsers:

  • Latest 2 versions of Chrome.
  • Latest 2 versions of Firefox and most recent version of the Extended Support Release.
  • Latest 2 versions of Safari.
  • Latest 2 versions of Edge.
  • Internet Explorer 11.
  • Latest 2 versions of Chrome for Android.
  • Latest 2 versions of Chrome for iOS and Safari for iOS.
7. How do you do check for cross browser compatibility?
  • I use my machine to test for Chrome and Firefox and my phone for Chrome on Android.
  • I use BrowserStack to test for iOS Chrome, iOS Safari and OS X Safari.
  • I use virtual machines running Windows to test for Internet Explorer and Edge.
  • When needed, I use Litmus to test email templates on all email clients.
8. How do you check for semantically correct HTML5 code?
I use the excellent Validity Chrome Extension and HTML5 Outliner to check for valid HTML5 code and reinforce the semantics, or meaning, of the information in web pages.
