About Me


Hello, there

My name is Shahid Yousuf. I'm a Senior Software Engineer currently working at Axelerant, previously Signeasy. Besides loving my job and my side hustles, I love play cricket, drive cars and enjoy great food and meals.

On this blog, I write beginner-friendly and intermediate programming tutorials and various web development tips to help programmers get started or become better at what we do.
