About

Hi
Abdul Qabiz
Thank you for taking time to know about me.

I am Abdul Qabiz (@abdulqabiz) from Kanpur, India.

This is my personal blog and I write about software, programming, technology, and my other experiences (entrepreneurship, business, etc).

When I am away from keyboard, I am either reading or writing – blog posts, replies to various emails in mailing-lists. I am active on twitter. I also manage Flex India online-group. Please check out the right-sidebar to see different ways to connect to me.

Background:

I am a passionate self-taught computer programmer and have many years’ experience in software and product development. I have experience with a lot of technologies and tools, however, a considerable amount of time have gone working on Adobe Adobe Flash Platform (flash, flex, air, flashlite) and web-technologies.

I am CTO of Allies Interactive and IndieReign where I help build useful products and services.

In past, I worked with

  • Yahoo! on platform components/api and Yahoo! Avatars. I have had a good time working among some of the best software engineers and developers.
  • Mixercast” a startup where I helped – platform-architecture, implementation of best flash-platform practices, startup-culture, building syndication engine based on standards like RSS(MediaRSS), suggesting/implementing new ideas and lot more.Working with a startup is always good experience; I love it, and keep on working with startups.
  • Macromedia(acquired by Adobe):  It was a dream of any flash developer to work at Macromedia, I was no different, and I ended up working here. I was among first fifteen team members of Macromedia Bangalore. I worked on Flex SDK and contributed in two releases of Flex: 1.5 and 2.0.

In my current role as full time entrepreneur, I am still a developer from heart but my experience over the years helps me learn new things and deal with challenges everyday.

As a programmer, I always believed – A good programmer always writes good code by making right choices and decisions. I want to solve complex problem with simplicity, and build useful products with great user-experience. In order to do that, I am up for doing whatever it takes to.

Some of areas I have been working on for years:

software architecture, distributed computing, cloud computing, video encoding, video strategy, digital rights management, open-source software, web technologies, web standards, web strategy, rich internet applications (ria), adobe flash platform (flash, flex, air, flashlite, actionscript), entrepreneurship, development process, startups, social media, branding and identity

languages/technologies/tools: actionscript, javascript, python, ruby, php, java, c++, c#, flash, flex, air, flashlite, php, symfony, node.js, sinatra, http, html, css, cms, crm, wordpress, subversion, git, ffmpeg, x264, widevine, adobe access, aws, docker, vagrant, gnu/linux, etc.

      There is job for good developers/designers everywhere. I am sure, Pune have many companies which want smart and passionate people for their team.

      If you were around Kanpur, I would have discussed the positions in our company.
