Hi there!

I’m Jibran, a web developer based in Dubai

I’m a 30ish guy from Pakistan, who moved to Dubai in 2013 to work on some wicked cool web development projects. In the time I have been here, I have had the good luck of working with the badass teams at:

  • Dubizzle – the biggest classifieds platform in the Middle East region.
  • JustProperty.com – one of the largest property listings portal here in the UAE.
  • Felix – an insure-tech startup.

My primary web development tool is the Django framework using the Python language. I am also the DevOps guy in my current job. Not only do I know how to build an application, I also know how to deploy it to the cloud. How cool is that!

If you’re looking for a more professional introduction to me, checkout my LinkedIn profile.

What else?

I’ve written a book on Django. It’s not the most positively received book out there, but it was my first shot at writing something of this size, and I’m very proud of the fact that I completed and published it. Maybe someday I’ll write another one which will be better. Not sure yet.

I occasionally blog here. But I’m not regular with it. When I have a thought that I just need to get onto paper (or screen here) I write. But I don’t follow any set interval for blogging.

I also like photography, and when I occasionally travel, I like to take a lot of photographs and put them online.
