An avid sports fan, Ali has been working hard in our Islamabad office for a year and a half. Junaid A., Ali’s Team Lead, had wonderful things to say about his work and attitude. “I really appreciate Ali K. for doing an awesome job for his client. The best thing about Ali is his dedication towards his work. He is always willing to accept new challenges and learn new technologies. It is very rare to see him getting to the office late, and I really appreciate him for being so awesome and for his dedication. Keep doing good work Ali!!!!”
Ali K’s Client Relations Manager, Katie, also loves working with Ali. “Ali K is an extremely dedicated individual. He is always willing to go the extra mile for his client whether it be from staying late or learning new skills. It has been a joy working with him and getting to know him, Thank you for all the hard work and effort you put forth Ali!”
So Ali, what college did you attend and what degree(s) do you have?
I attended school and college in my hometown of Pabbi in Nowshera. Later, I graduated from the University of Engineering and Technology in Peshawar in the field of Computer Software Engineering.
What got you started in IT?
Well, my father told me again and again that here in our society everyone is going into the medical field, or doing a Masters in Physics, Chemistry, or Biology and then teaching in school. He told me that he would like that me go into some new field, and according to his wish I got a degree in Computer Software Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology in Peshawar. Now I am working in a software company and I am enjoying it a lot.
How many total years of experience do you have?
I have over five years of experience in total, and I have worked with three other companies before joining Allshore. I have worked in custom PHP, WordPress, and Drupal and am in love with this field.
Tell us about your experiences working in the company.
It has been a great experience to work at Allshore. This environment has helped to better my communication skills. I have also been able to learn new technologies and work on complex projects that help to enhance my skill set.
What is your favorite framework to work with? Why?
Well, I mostly work in WordPress and Drupal and, although they are not frameworks, I like them the most because they provide all the facilities to implement any type of web application.
What, in your opinion, are the key ingredients in guiding and maintaining successful business relationships?
I think honesty is the best ingredient, because then you can earn your client’s confidence. That is also a key that is being applied by Allshore.
Alright Ali, onto the more personal questions. What is your favorite: movie, game, and color?
I enjoy any movie with a good story and theme that can attract your attention for the whole duration of the movie and does not bore you at any time. My favorite game is cricket, which I keenly follow on TV and also play regularly. Lastly, my favorite color is green.
What do you and your family like to do in your free time?
On the weekends I spend my whole day with my family. Sometimes we go on outings to some beautiful nearby place.
Do you have any personal hobbies/interests?
I like to spend most of the time with my family, but sometimes I make plans with one of my friends to visit the surrounding mountain hills of Islamabad.
Yes, I have traveled to many beautiful places in Pakistan such as Naran, Kaghan, Lake Saiful Muluk, Neelum Valley, and Nathia Gali. Next on my list is to go some other parts of Kashmir.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
If there is any way to go back in time I would like to become a schoolboy once again. What a time that was!
Do you like sports? Do you play any?
Yes, I like sports very much. I play cricket, table tennis, and badminton on a regular basis. I also watch the football and hockey world cups as well.
What is the last movie you watched?
The last movie I watched was Avengers: Age of Ultron at a cinema in Lahore when Junaid A. took his team to Lahore in order to have some fun and enjoy some free time there.
Ali enjoys watching movies, and if he could play any role he would like to be like Gerard Butler as Leonidas in 300. His nickname is actually Ali K., since his full name is considered very long. Ali never leaves home without his wallet, cell phone, and ID card. We hope this great guy stays with us for years to come!
