About Me

Fahimnur Alam I have been developing since I was about 13~ years old. Around the time when Myspace was at their peak. Everyone was rolling with their unique profile with custom css and hidden media player blasting their favorite audio of choice. I really liked how easy it was to make changes to your profile and how far you could go with tiny `css` hacks. Since then, I have always been captivated by the process of breaking, building and working on websites. Over the years, I have gained extensive experience in various aspects of software development, from design to implementation to testing and deployment.

My home and career

I have had the privilege of calling New York City my home for the majority of my life. I live here with my wife, family and two three beautiful cats. Praise be to Allah (swt) for everything. Currently, I am 28 years old and working at one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies as a Senior Principal Software Engineer. At this place, I oversee the development of complex software systems that are used to enhance and support the company's operations.

Current purpose

I believe that staying up-to-date with the latest technologies and best practices is essential for delivering reliable solutions. I'm always exploring new approaches and seeking out opportunities to improve myself and help others become better engineers. There is always something to learn and improve upon. My goal with this blog to share some of the personal stories and insights from my journey.

The next journey

Recently, my focus has shifted on what kind of projects I'd like to work on. By emphasizing transparency, privacy, and inclusivity, I strive to create apps that not only deliver functionality but also uphold ethical standards. With a commitment to promoting positive contributions to society, I aim to empower users while maintaining their trust and respect throughout the development process.

I believe that software has the power to empower people and simplify their lives. I'm honored to be a part of this industry and to have the opportunity to create apps that make a difference.
