Hi, my name is Islam Morsi. I've put off making my own website and sharing something about myself with the rest of the world. But as they say, better late than never.
I am a (web/mobile) developer but I think it's weird when people define themselves as their occupation. So let me rephrase by saying that I create websites and mobile apps. I also travel, weightlift, read, practice Muay Thai, volunteer, scuba dive, and dabble in various other things.
My first experience with programming was in a high school Computer Science class when I was 13 years old. I continued to study CS throughout high school and eventually at the beautiful University of California Santa Barbara campus. Santa Barbara was also where I was introduced to hiking, camping, and my first traveling experience (besides coming to the U.S from Egypt) through a program called Semester at Sea. All of these things define who I am today.
Coding to me is about being creative, problem solving (which can be a creative endeavour in itself), and being efficient/practical. This translates into almost everything I do.
