My name is Ahmed [ˈɑːmæd]. It’s derived from the verb that means to praise or to thank God in Arabic. A name I found similar to mine is the name Amadeus which means “to love God”.

I’m a programmer based in Cairo, Egypt. I have been working on both the backend as well as the frontend for a while now (although I still don’t know how that started but here we are). Currently, I work as a software engineer on the backend.

I’m most interested in software engineering principles, how software performs, and building large systems. I’m also fond of linguistics and languages; both programming languages and human natural languages.
