Hi! I'm glad you are here today. This page is my professional biography. So let me introduce you a bit more of this journey.

I changed my professional life to a programmer 10 years ago through freelancing in Windows and Web Development using Microsoft .NET. Before that, I was a Computer Hardware Engineer who didn't enjoy the field that much.

Over the years, I trended myself with various technologies in IT, learned many programming languages and tools, worked with a lot of prestigious clients, took initiatives, and guided many students as well as did help of developers to fix coding issues through the Fellow tuts blog.

Educator and Mentor



I have coached professional programming to many young people who were at the stage of starting the career. I experienced that the regular classes or a traditional teacher don't teach the coding that the industry expects. So I trended them from understanding a basic HTML tag to developing a complete and dynamic website.

I have also guided students to choose the right career. After identifying the skills and potentials, I've encouraged many of them to opt for alternative careers like Designing.
