About Me

Hi there! I'm Hussein, a Software Developer based in Cairo, Egypt. I love being unconventional and going on adventures.
Here's a little about me:

    Random Facts:
  • I own a Siberian Husky. She's called Lisa, and she's so cute. ❤️
  • I started developing and publishing Android apps since I was 15.
  • I code by day and game by night. I am a huge fan of mobile games.
    Daily Habits:
  • Coding for my next evil genius invention.
  • Listening to some inspirational music almost throughout the whole day.
  • Running with Lisa, my forever puppy.
    Favorite Food:
  • Any kind of Chicken, especially crispy Chicken Strips. I can eat endless bowls of it.
  • French Fries with oregano and melting cheese on top.
  • Pizza with toooo much Ketchup on it. My friends like to call it "Ketchup with some Pizza".

Skills

I am an Android Developer with 4 years of experience, who likes to turn ideas into beautiful Android apps. I also like to explore new things whenever possible, and so I sometimes indulge in Web Development when I miss to do so.

I mostly write in Java, Python, HTML, CSS, and Javascript. I always strive to build the best apps and experience a user can possibly have, with simplicity in the user interface. I believe that a killer design along with some unique useful features no other app has are what make a project stand out.

Meanwhile, here is what I love to do:

Learn

I live to learn. I believe that there is a learning experience in every failure. I strive to learn from my personal losses & seek out for advice to gain a broader understanding of the world.

Design

I love to design and sketch new products - I want to develop products that perform complex functions with simple commands. I believe clean user interface is the key to a sustainable product.

Prototype

I am a huge fan of creating different prototypes of new ideas. I believe that there lies a certain beauty of producing new iterations of products that exceeds the former ones.

Volunteer

I volunteer at my University to teach Computer Science to students in their first year of study, and let them get an insight into the basics of Computer Science.
