Thanks for showing interest to know more about me.
My name is Abdul Qabiz (handle: abdulqabiz) and I live in Kanpur, India. This is my personal blog and I write about a lot of things, though main focus is on technology most of time but a lot things from different areas (entrepreneurship, business, etc) also show up time to time.
During my free time, I am either reading or writing – blog posts, replies to various emails in mailing-lists. I am very active on twitter. I also manage Flex India online-group. Please check out the right-sidebar to see different ways to connect to me.
I am a passionate self-taught computer programmer and have many years’ experience in software development, specifically Adobe Flash Platform (flash, flex, air, flashlite) and web-technologies.
I am CTO of Allies Interactive Services, where I am trying to use all my experience and potential to build a great team, culture, process, practices and products. I see myself working with a team which full of passion and innovation.
Earlier, I worked for Yahoo!, where I had an opportunity to work on some platform components and Yahoo! Avatars, it was great experience to be among the best developers and to work on some of cool products/services.
I was also fortunate enough to work in a cool startup “Mixercast“, where I had an opportunity and freedom to learn and contribute in different ways: platform-architecture, implementation of best flash-platform practices, startup-culture, venture-capital, building syndication engine based on standards like RSS(MediaRSS), suggesting/implementing new ideas and lot more.
I would say, working in a startup or in a startup like culture is a great experience, I would love to do it again and again.
Most of my dreams have come true, one of those was working for Macromedia(now Adobe). It was a dream company for any passionate flash developer, I was no different. I ended up working here among the initial team in Macromedia Bangalore. I was part of Flex SDK team and contributed in two releases of Flex: 1.5 and 2.0.
At Macromedia (now Adobe), I made very good friends and learned many professional and personal things, which help me everyday now. Totally great experience.
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 work on applications, which provide great experience to users. To do that, I am up for doing whatever it takes.
My Specialties are:
Web technologies, web strategy, internet, rich internet application (RIA), Adobe Flash Platform (Flash, Flex, AIR, FlashLite and ActionScript), web/online video strategy and implementation, software architecture, entrepreneurship, open-source, development process, startups, social media, branding and identity
