I like to promote myself as an XP software developer, blogger and squash player!
I am passionate about software development and in particular building products that bring value to others. Throughout my career, I have played the role of a software developer, technical coach, team lead, project lead, and product manager.
A common feedback I get from colleagues is being responsible and accountable for my work. I take ownership of my tasks and projects and never hesitate to ask for help or advice when needed. Following any feedback, I tend to work hard to improve my soft and technical skills. So far, I managed to successfully lead three major internal projects that had a huge impact on the development community of the company.
On several occasions, I was regarded as having strong “People” and “Soft” Skills. While I was leading a dev team, I adopted “Management 3.0” as my management technique. By doing so, I was able to build a trust with all my direct reports. That made it easier for me to resolve any conflict and comfortable for them to share anything with me, even what could be considered as delicate subjects.
In 2015, I started my personal technical blog aiming at sharing my technical expertise with the development community. My main focus is to document the solution for the complex problems I encounter while writing code.
I gave my first talk ‘Extreme Practices‘ at AgileTourBeirut in October 2016 and at the ‘SPA Software Conference – London‘ in June 2017. In that talk, we shared our experience of adopting the XP practices in a remote mode.
