Completed three years as a flipper

fliplogo Wow!! This week I completed three year working in Flip Media Dubai. I joined Flip in 16th March 2006 and I can still remember my first day in office. I enjoyed working @ flip and it is always challenging, full of excitement and we work on the latest trend and technology for the web.

During the past three year I was playing a part in developing Chameleon CMS. I would like to thank my buddy Shuja Shabandri ( he will be updating his blog soon 😉 ) for giving me this wonderful opportunity to work in Flip and in Chameleon team. I would like to thank Dinesh Lalavni and Martin Diessner for their constant support and constant thirst for latest technology in web. Without them we are bullet shot without a target. I would like to thank each and everyone working @ flip and giving me full support throughout these years.

Awaiting more fun and challenges in the years to come and I am sure I will be blogging about it all.

  1. It has been great working with you and the whole team. Learning the technology is never difficult, but working @flip has given us a whole new dimension to the way we perceive web and the web applications. I guess that’s the benefit of working under the Tech Gurus.

    We need to get cracking on the ecommerce extension for Chameleon 4 soon. So, be prepared for some intense discussions as always 🙂

  2. Hi Imthi,
    Sorry I missed the day, but you know how bad I am with anniversaries!
    Congratulations – you are instrumental to Flip’s operation and I think you are one of the best if not the best php programmer that I know!
    I still remember in the old Flip office when you developed the new media manager for then CH3.1 which is awesome, and I am sure Flickr and WordPress must have stolen some ideas from you at the time 🙂
    Wish you will remain with Flip forever, and continue to rock on Chameleon.

  3. You have ‘done’ a lot in this 3 year for Flip, especially for TRV Office. I remember the very first chat we had – it was regarding Sharjah Tourism styling. Your valuable inputs and support for Flip TRV in past 6 months is jaw dropping. You left your loved ones,lovely dubai office and sacrificed your ‘engaged life’ (which nobody would do) to give us a helping hand. I know, it had cost you a fortune!! We are thankful for that. As Martin said, we all wish to see you leading in front forever. Outside office, you have been my best buddy in Flip, which will also remain 🙂

    All the very best, behalf of Flip Trivandrum.

  4. For me you are more than a web geek. Its from you I got the most photography tips. The first SLR cam I ever touched is yours. Thanks for that. Congrats… 🙂

  5. I still remember the day when Sujith called me for interview at Flip and I Googled for details about Flipmeida. helped me a lot to get a picture of Flip. And when I am in Flip, your talks on SEO really helped me a lot. Looking forward for more tips on iPhone also 😉
