I am a Full-stack web developer.

I am currently working at Umm Al Qura University; as a senior developer, I also help manage a team of 6 developers.

Usually, my workflow doesn't have a specific rule, so I work in so many areas.

From attending some meetings, managing and assisting the tasks for the team, code reviews, business analysts, designing the pages, and coding them.

History.

In around 2001, I remember my first try to make a website; it's was on one of these site builder platforms (I think I had wh.8m.com).

Then, I gradually started to learn HTML and CSS to style the sites I am making.

At that time, I didn't have a computer at home, so I used to go to an internet cafe. I spend more than 8 hours semi-daily carrying my USB stuck to save my files; that stick was the most valuable thing in my life.

In early 2002, I finally got to buy the first computer, and that boost my learning.

I start to install localhost, run PHP scripts, read the codes, and understand how it works; I begin to edit more scripts to fit my needs and my newly created website.

Starting in 2006, I began to develop my scripts and published them on the local developer forms and kept going for a few years. Providing free updates and supports, and it went viral.

Also, at that time, I worked as a freelancer for small companies in our area, and it was the best day of my life.

Of course, being a starter as a freelancer wasn't baying me much, so I started to look for a job. So, in 2006 I finally got my first job as a web developer at the library at Umm Al Qura University.

And from there, I advanced to learn more and expand my knowledge

in 2008 I got another job as a developer in the central IT department at the University, and eleven years later, I still there.

In 2009 I got tenure at my job; I became a government employee.

In 2019 I quit, and switch back to the private sector, still working in the same place but by contract, got my freedom, hoping someday I can go back to be freelance again.

In 2020 I started to make new hopples, and maybe in the future will be a side job for me.

I started to learn how to make films and edit them in Final cut pro; I post a few videos on youtube; it's not my main thing, but who knows in the future.

That's my career, thanks for reading 😃.
