Aref is an experienced software engineer passionate about sharing his knowledge and experience with others.
He completed a masters degree in Software Engineering but his journey with programming began when he was just 13 years old (with a Commodore 64 computer).
At age 17, Aref sold his first commercial software, a real estate management program written in Turbo Pascal. He also developed an interest and high proficiency in 8085 and 8086 assembly languages. This interest led to a period where he worked in the electronics industry building industrial automation devices.
As a (cheeky) hobby, Aref worked on computer viruses that came to the attention of Peter Norton. Googling “Aref.890” turns up some interesting information!
Since this time, Aref has continued to build a variety of enterprise software solutions using engineering tools and frameworks such as FoxPro, Delphi, C++, C#, Grafana, New Relic, TeamCity, and Bamboo.
Aref is also passionate about teaching, spending 3.5 years working as a high school teacher in Iran. He now channels this passion into online teaching and is grateful for the opportunity to teach many students around the world.
He has published two books around software development one of which was published when he was 19 years old.
Aref currently works in Australia as a technology leader, and he enjoys working with talented engineers and creating various software architecture solutions for clients.
