About Me

Hello :) nice of you to drop by.

I am AbdulFattah (also called Abdul, Abdulfatai and Popoola); I mostly write about software – yeah I’m passionate about it. Meet me.

Short Version

Where: Redmond, USA

Occupation: Software Engineer in Test/Husband/Father

Religion: Proudly Muslim :)

Operating Systems: Linux (Ubuntu mostly), Windows 7/8

Editors: Vim

Human Languages: English, Arabic, Yoruba, Hausa, Pidgin English

Programming Languages: JavaScript, Java, C#, C, Python, PHP, SQL, Octave, HTML

Databases: MySQL, MongoDB


I am very friendly and love helping out; although this is not always possible, I do try my best. I love to write code… yes! I can spend my whole day at a computer trying to make it do something arcane or trying out some new stuff I just learnt. I also have a thing for languages (both human and programming) – I find them interesting and hope to learn as many as possible.

Alhamdulilah I completed a Master’s degree in Computing and Information Science at the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in 2013. My research focused on big data, mobile/social computing and complexity analysis, I studied how these fields affect interactions between humans and the impact they have on human behaviour.

I am very curious and enjoy learning a lot; my interests vary from classical computer science principles to software engineering concepts. I aim to touch lives and make the world a better place through these channels and I pray Allah helps me to do this.

I’m Muslim by the way and I try to obey the rules of Islam to the best of my capabilities.

My posts on this blog are my own views and not my employer’s.

    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
