Salim A

Hi friends! I am a full-stack developer who specializes in building web-based and mobile-based applications. I am the kind of person who enjoys a good puzzle and embraces any interesting challenges and when I found the book “Begin to Code with Python” by Rob Miles I immediately got hooked and have since built complex and simple real-world apps such as an egg timer, CRUD apps, and landing pages. I am looking for an environment filled with exciting and challenging projects.
