Student / Developer
Hey there visitor! I'm Shahlin Ibrahim, if you didn't know that already. I'm currently doing my Bachelors in Computer Science (final semester) in University of Wollongong in Dubai. I'm from Mangalore, India. I've been in the U.A.E for about 15 years now. Haven't learned to speak the language though. But I've learned many other languages. ;)
Why Computer Science?
Computers have been my thing for a long time now. It started back when we used dial up connections to access the internet. Created my first e-mail account then. Yahoo! As I got comfortable with the whole system, I started diving deep into it. I used to try out different operating systems (mostly Linux based), disassemble laptops, make computer related tutorials on Youtube, etc. When I was in 9th grade, me and my friend started learning web development. I did back-end and he did front-end. Took us about a year to get used to all the concepts and programming since it was self-taught. But it was worth it. Helped me a lot later when I actually started learning programming. Was always ahead of the other students. Well, that might be a bit of an exaggeration but hey, I'm a positive person and there's no problem in praising yourself now and then. I've been continuing this initial interest of developing websites since about 6 years I think. Still learning. Always learning.
