Tahseen Alaa Picture

Hi, I'm Tahseen.

Ever since when I was a little kid, I still remember my self passionate about building things and repair faulty devices in my father's workshop, Throughout high school, I spent hours and hours sitting in front of my old PC learning the basic roles of programming, It was like magic to let the computer do whatever I wanted just by typing a little funny symbols. This passion carried me through my education to get a Computer Engineering degree, I invested in myself and studied beyond the official curriculum, I studied the new programming languages, Object-Oriented Programming, Algorithms, Compilers, and Hardware Infrastructure. So, now in the industry, this passion still with me, and there are certainly yet more to learn, more problems to solve, and more solutions to build.
