About Me

Professional

My name is AbdulFattah Popoola and I work for the Microsoft TFS Agile Experience team in Redmond. My software odyssey, which started in 2006, spans several problems and multiple domains.

I hold a Master’s degree in Computing and Information Science from the Masdar Institute and a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from the Obafemi Awolowo University.

I am deeply passionate about software development and spend a lot of my time on it (at and outside work). In addition, I find machine learning and network analysis interesting.

My favourite programming language is JavaScript; I am also proficient in Python and familiar with Java, C#, PHP, Scheme, Matlab/Octave, R, C and SQL.

I also love learning and read a lot; my curiosity pushes me to keep searching for information.

Personal

When I am not at work or spending time with my family; you’ll probably find me honing my programming skills, learning Taekwondo or reading a good book.

I am passionate about education, health and social welfare; in my spare time I try to contribute to these domains using my skills.

I can converse in English, Arabic, Yoruba, Hausa, Pidgin English and understand very minimal French (I have forgotten nearly all I learnt).

I am Muslim and try my best to contribute to noble initiatives for human good.

    It’s good to learn and know about everything, not only computer language.

    I’m not religion, but I know there is something what connected to all, and all connected to one.

    When you search for the good things, good things will come, that’s my experiences

    And when your mind is open, good signals and ideas will come from the greatest.
    From what religion you are, that’s not important, important is to be good and take care for the world with all it’s nature, and the source of nature will feed you.

    Greed is bad, and destroying everything.

    Some people can’t handle his status, and start destroying all the good things what is build on
