About Me

My name is Hassanin Ahmed (sas1ni69 on the interwebs) and I’m a Ruby on Rails developer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I enjoy stand up comedy, singing, playing the guitar and Ultimate Frisbee. I strive to learn and to reinvent myself, over and over again. I’ve been developing for the web for the past 7 years and I’ve loved every day of it. I’ve had servers crash on me, databases wiped, code broke, clients threatening murder and about a thousand other software development crisis.

Coca Code

Through my involvement in the previous company(Content Capital) we were able to identify a need for an application that would aid trainers in the training process.

We developed http://penamera.com which was a tool for trainers to help asses their performances. We were not able to secure a major paying customer and also failed in raising any funds.  

More recently we started working on a new platform(http://trainerhunt.com) to help trainers and speakers to promote themselves and to be available for selection by SMEs(Small Medium Enterprises) in Malaysia.
