About Me

I’m a software engineer/architect and software project consultant with more than 15 years of experience. I’m also an adjunct faculty at Heriot-Watt University. I’m a PhD candidate, and my research is about the application of deep learning in network security. This blog is a place to share my personal experiences. My Area of interests is topics related to software engineering and deep learning.

Crafting enterprise software for both web and windows is still my daily job. I love the fact that each project has specific requirements, and that’s where I pick different tools for solving that particular problem and basically, that’s where I learn new technologies.

Another topic that I enjoy is improving my productivity in daily life, and I’m continuously trying different techniques to improve my productivity.

My first line of code was with Commodore 64. I got my first MCP in 2005. I blog about my daily experience on my projects so it might help other people.

Running and  CrossFit is the way I keep myself alive.
Playing music is my second passion it used to be my job, but now it’s my hobby. I play Electric Guitar for 20 years.

Reading books, watching movies and TV Shows is my fun.

I’m married, have a lovely wife and a daughter, and I live in UAE.
