I have made many Open-Source contributions, and I strive to give back to the community to the best of my abilities. All of my personal projects, be it a one-off script or a large project, are available on my GitHub account.
I’ve started learning development at the age 12 in Lebanon. I owned a Casio Graph 100 back then, and I’ve learned C and assembly in order to write programs for it – unconventional programs in a sense. As someone who yearns for knowledge, I’ve experimented with many different angles of Software development. I’ve hacked mobile phones, designed and wrote websites, wrote backend applications and APIs, and managed servers as pets and cattle.
Between the age of 13 and 18, I worked as a computer technician at my local computer store. I gained experience in understanding the machine at the hardware level, and gained knowledge of a typical program and the path such program must follow. And one day, in the late ‘90s, I got exposed to Linux, my operating system of choice since 2001. Please read all about my Linux/Unix history.
At the age of 19 I moved to France and pursued my education in Engineering at the University of Rennes 1. During my student years, I also worked at Telcos. After my graduation, I started working for Weem followed by Agence Durable and soon after I moved to the US.
