Hi there, please introduce yourself, tell us who you are, what your profession is and feel free to add anything cool about you that we should know.
Hi there! My name is Abdullah and I am a Senior Full Stack Web Developer with over 15 years of professional web development experience.
I can honestly say that I love my profession, because I enjoy creating solutions for real-world problems using the benefits of computer technology. I am also the Co-Founder of ConfiDens Analytics, a SaaS product which I developed with a team of Dentists and Dental Consultants. My app helps dentists find the best locations for Dental Start-Up Businesses in a fraction of the time. I also own a web design and development company called Raw Axiom, where I partner with businesses to provide solutions to their web development needs.

What was your most recent role and how did it contribute to the success of the company you worked for?
My most recent role was with an RESP company, as a Senior Full Stack Web Developer. I implemented a Content Management System (CMS) that empowered the business and marketing teams to update their app's 'presentation layer' without the need of contacting the IT department to do this for them. This saved the company valuable cost and time.
Was there any aspect of the project or work that you were involved with that you are especially proud of?
I created a custom 'visualization feature' in the CMS that mimicked the exact look and feel of the application (e.g. page by page, feature by feature). This made it extremely easy for the company's business and marketing teams to instantly visualize how their changes would be represented in the app.
Have you had a chance to work with any cool technologies (languages, platforms, cloud softwares) in the last couple years?
Absolutely. Here are some cool technologies that I have worked with so far:
Laravel, Vue/Vuex, Paypal/Stripe payment API, Wordpress/Woocommerce, Google/Facebook/Instagram API, Bootstrap/Zurb Foundation, Git, Jira, NPM/Composer, Alogia, Drupal/Silverstripe, Oracle/MySQL/Redis, JSON/XML, Digital Ocean/Pantheon/Wp Engine.
Is there a particular soft skill that you take pride in?
Yes, I do really enjoy teaching, being around people and I love presenting demos as well.
Whether interviewing or hiring is there anything you’ve seen / been part of, in the Toronto /market that you would call innovative?
Being on both sides of the table as an interviewer or interviewee, I realized the best candidates are individuals who exhibits a combination of knowledge and good attitude. However, I cannot think of anything 'innovative' that an interviewee or interviewer has said or been a part of at this time.
What are you looking for in your next employment challenge?
As a passionate web developer with strong programming fundamentals, I'm not too concerned about encountering challenging or new technologies. I'm a strong believer in solving problems using the correct technologies, rather than solving problems using only the technologies that I'm familiar with. For my next employment challenge, I'm seeking a project that would provide great value to my client's organization, while also facilitating my own growth as an individual and my career.
