About

A curious application developer, I started my programming career back in 2002 by editing source codes of popular websites, I soon started to wonder how those pages worked, how sessions are carried from page to page.

I figured “they” use something called database for data persistence.  I was having my internship at a cyber cafe in Lagos at that time instead of The Honda Place as i was a Mechanical Engineering student at Yaba College of technology then.

I took advantage of the steady internet connection at my office to download a 23MB mysql database server (This took close to 8 hours to download on an unsteady 5KB/s connection, a very fast connection at that time). Bought a 128 MB RAM pentium II desktop computer running Windows 2000  from my friend.

Installed it and later figured i needed an Apache web server and a PHP application server.
I got them all working, and that was how it all started.

I spent over 12 hours daily learning programming concepts, working on samples, tutorials etc.
In 2006, I was offered a Lead Web Developer role at Sadeeb Technologies LTD.

At Sadeeb Technologies in 2007, I picked up Python and had the privilege to work on a python desktop application for the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria (NPMCN). Working on this application was more of a learning curve for me.

Since then, I have spent each day learning new things as i work on different projects

I have mastered Python (PyQt, Twisted etc), PHP/MySQL, Actionscript 3,  Javascript, CSS, HTML.

I have recently been a Lead Software Engineer at Lead Inspiration LLC where I collaborated with team members to develop desktop applications and SaaS applications for an electricity distribution company. i used Git to implement versioning on Github and ensured code clarity as well as worked in an agile environment to complete tasks.

I would love to work in a fast-paced environment that allows team growth through trainings and communication, and would enjoy a role that exposes me to new technologies. When evaluating a new role, I prioritize –in this order– technology stack, team, work/life balance, compensation, location, and benefits.

I most recently worked with Quicken Loans as a senior software engineer where i reviewed and refactored PHP codes, wrote unit tests, and wrote some code coverage logic with bash.

I am also an experienced Linux Server administrator,  who understands and have worked with media streaming technologies like the Red5 Media Server.
