My motto is to help as many people I can to find their path and they in turn helped me become a better person and discovered what I really want. That is – making games. Right now I am a very happy introverted nerd. Its been no short of an adventure. Work for me is fun. Thank you for your the time.

Experience

In 2008, Bangladesh was under the Caretaker Government . During this time, I worked directly under the Joint Commissioner of National Board of Revenue (NBR), Hossein Ahmed to recover data from ERP Servers confiscated from Industries so that they can calculate unpaid Vat/Tax from the data and fine these industries.

At this time I met Avik Anwar Bhai (owner of CAR HOUSE LIMITED http://www.carhousebd.net), which was the first online car showroom in Bangladesh and got my big break in web development by building the site . He also did a Magazine called R3VOLUTION Automotive Magazine. The first 2 issues were designed by me so that it can take off . It sponsored by BMW, i-Drive, Mobil-1, Haida Tired. It was fun to work on this project.


By this time I started Programming a little bit on C++. I was webmaster for the ULTRADEFRAG Project (under Dmitri Arkhangelski). I made that ultradefrag site. Dmitri is a great character & and an avid advanced programmer who introduced me to the art of OpenSource.

I have two research papers thanks to Raspberry, Arduinos and friends at Roboticsbd.com . As note of thanks I created the Facebook Page for ROBOTICS BD INNVOATION LABS at https://www.facebook.com/groups/roboticsbd/ which now has over 1500 students and researchers as members. I bought my first Raspberry Pi from them which I used finish my Parallel Programming Course and made a Pi-Cluster.
Initiated the first ever 2D game development workshop as the Microsoft Student Partner Lead of IUB in Bangladesh at the Microsoft Corporate Office Bangladesh by showing some of our CryEngine work (because Unity was at v3.0 and Unreal Engine was 8 Million dollars to buy ! which is now OpenSource).

Then the first game Development workshop at Independent University Bangladesh. These are all the workshops and my beloved students. They taught me more than I could show them. Wonderful bunch of programmers. Selected from the best in the country.
I also made the Project Game Developers of Bangladesh on Facebook just for this community.

Microsoft ImagineCamp Speaker

Participated in Microsoft Imagine Cup which ended us as the 3rd in World Citizenship Category .
In 2015 we won 1st place in the First ever NASA Space Apps Challenge 201 5 in Bangladesh.


Thanks to one of my Gurus , Ehsan Bhai who got me started on game development after I was done with CSC203 (Data Structures & Algorithm), I got the opportunity to talk about Game Development Scenario in Bangladesh in People’s Radio 91.6 FM at the Techmoshow.
