We are so thrilled to kick off 2021 by welcoming Ali to We Write Code! Hailing from Chicago, Ali brings his sharp problem solving skills to join our development team as a Senior PHP Developer. Get to know him a bit more down below. 👇
Why do you love what you do?
I enjoy learning new technologies and frameworks and am passionate about programming. My whole focus is on “First, solve the problem. Then, write the code.”
Fun fact about yourself
I love playing cricket and I broke my arm while playing my first match in club. Since then, I only watch cricket on TV.
What is an accomplishment you’re proud of?
In my last position, our technology development team lost a colleague due to relocation. He was the lead developer for the React version of the app. Management showed trust in my skills although I had little experience in React. I took on the role of React development and worked with the other team members to create and troubleshoot the new app. I was able to finish the development ahead of schedule.
What brought you to WWC?
I was looking for a company that gives me a chance to learn and also work in the technologies I am experienced in.
Anything else we should know?
I’m down to learn new technologies and looking to grow my communications skills as well because I feel like those are the areas I need to improve specifically.
