What got you started in web development? Why did you choose a career in this field?
It was my elder cousin that inspired me. He was a software engineer when I was in high school, and his work during that time inspired me and got me motivated. That was just the beginning of the story though. The reason I chose software development as career was because I wanted to be a part of innovation and be amongst the people who are remembered for their creativity. If you want to succeed you must love what you do!
How many years have you been in this field total?
It’s been almost five years since I started working as a software engineer. Initially I started with VB6, since back then it was very popular. Then I shifted to ASP.net and since then it has been my love. Next, I got the chance to work with industry giants that lead me to think outside the box and look at things from a broader perspective.
Tell us about your experiences working in the company.
I find myself lucky in the regard that I have always been in working environments where it feels like family. The same has been the case with Allshore.
What is your favorite framework to work with and why?
Since I started working with ASP.Net MVC I love it more than anything else. The great part about it is its syntax is easy to work with and a lot can be done with minimal code lines. That really helps in rapid development. I must say Microsoft is transforming to fit modern needs effectively.
What, in your opinion, are the key ingredients in guiding and maintaining successful business relationships?
Trust wins the battle. A positive attitude, an eye for details, and awareness of the latest technologies are one’s arsenal for conquering.

Do you have any personal hobbies or interests? What do you like to do in your free time?
Being a software engineer, my main hobby is to code. Besides that I like to play cricket and table tennis whenever I get the chance. Since software development is my passion, I love to code and learn new trends to stay up to date on the latest tech in my leisure hours.
Have you traveled anywhere interesting? What is next on your list?
Traveling to Lahore was one of the greatest experiences I’ve had. Next on my bucket list is Dubai, Switzerland, Australia, and Germany.
If you could play a part in a movie, what sort of character would you want to play?
I’d like to be a villain because they get to do extraordinary things without limitations in a short span before their character dies.
If you could go back in time, what year would you want to travel to? Why?
I would rather continue my journey towards the future and make the most out of what I have now. I want to learn from past experiences and create history for those to come and be remembered like the ones before me. Software engineering is my passion and I want to become a data scientist and an entrepreneur. In addition to that, I want to create something unique and extraordinary that would benefit the masses.
