About

Even though it is always hard to write about yourself in just five or six lines but let’s give it a try!

Hi, I am Ahmed, a software engineer interested specifically in development using PHP, Python, MySQL, Javascript and lately Go and some Java. I studied Petroleum Engineering (Yes I am a Petroleum Engineer :D). Weird Right! But It’s been an interesting journey to get here.

To be honest my academic study wasn’t a complete waste of time, I learned a lot during this period and the most important lesson was to not be afraid to ‘waste time’ trying new things or making mistakes. It’s part of figuring out what works for you and what doesn’t.

I love challenges, Always looking to improve and play nice with both humans and machines.

Don’t feel confused when you find me retweet a lot of photos, photography is my second passion.
