Learn more about me

My name is Abdulrahman Alotaiba, a Qatari developer from the beautiful city of Doha. I work as an independent part-time developer. I graduated from Oregon State University in 2015 with a B.Sc. degree, with Cum Laude honor, in Electrical and Computer Engineering, with Computer Science minor.

I code for the fun of it, and most of my personal projects are released under the open source license.

I develop applications on many platforms and languages. I started with PC software development in early 1999, when I was 14 years old, at that time, I used Visual Basic and some C++. Unfortunately, I didn’t find myself there, so I quickly moved to the web.

Since late 1999, I have been developing for the web, and promoting the use of W3C standards, especially in the Arab world. I have been writing about it since 2006, on Almashroo blog, and my own personal blog here.

2010 marked my return to the software development world, but this time on the mobile platform. I chose it as an adventure and a challenge.

I’m a strong believer in the open source development, I guess you can call me an open source enthusiast. I believe that I wouldn’t have reached to the level that I’m at currently, if it wasn’t for Allah’s blessing and then the open source community. I owe the open source community so much, that I devoted most of my personal projects to the open source community.

My skills include a lot of technologies, and languages. I can develop with Assembly, C, C++, Objective-C, C#, Java, .NET, SQL, XML, JSON as well as web technologies, such as, (X)HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, LAMP server administration.

Take a look at my projects, and don’t hesitate to contact me, even if you just wanted to say hi, I would love it!
