I am a Junior Web Developer working at Namshi.com, a Rocket Internet Venture located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. I am one of those developers who were unfortunately introduced to the amazing world of web technology and open-source after graduating from college.
I am an American University of Sharjah alumni holding a Double Major in Electrical and Computer Engineering with honors (Magna Cum Laude). I developed passion towards the Information Technology sector early on in my studies and as soon as I attended my first course session and lab in C++. I have been always driven towards the Computer Engineering more than Electrical Engineering. Thinking about it now, I kinda wish I had enrolled in Computer Science instead! I am a published co-author with two conference papers on LTE-Advanced (4G), here and here.
Being part of the start-up culture has been an incredible experience so far, the people, the technology and the spirit are, in my opinion, the best in the industry nowadays.
I aim from this blog to share my experiences as much as I can. I am hoping to start contributing to open-source projects soon (still don’t know where to start from to be honest!).
