About Me

I recently worked on an open source side project called Ferdi: https://github.com/getferdi

Amine is a 30 years-old software engineer with a can-do attitude born in Morocco, raised/educated in France, and who lived in Asia from 2011 to 2019, as a digital nomad with residence in China, then Thailand.

He codes mainly with Javascript (Node/React/React Native) nowadays but has experience with C/C++/C#/Java/PHP. He is also good at everything related to development operations (DevOps), automation and troubleshooting. He made and monetized a couple of projects from the ground up. Confident in his skills and a quick learner, Amine has worked in many industries, at different scales and using a wide range of skills and tools. He is constantly working on his soft skills which range from UI, UX, social media, marketing to product development, growth hacking, leader/mentorship and EQ. 

"Amine led our diverse team to plan, build, and maintain our b2b application and its deployment stack over two years. With a team spread across the globe, he designed a development workflow that ensured we were all able to work together efficiently. Amine's skills were truly fullstack, including building secure APIs, detail server bug tracking, designing dashboards, and more. He is constantly learning new technologies and putting them into useful implementation. He was a highly effective developer and problem solver in all environments." — Mackenzie Pringle, CEO at Continuous Software
