Started my career as a professional coder with the first project in dBase in 1987, and there was a career twist towards the end of 1989. Through 1997 I was more or less in the publishing industry and has worked in Alfajr UAE with the National Pink Pages and Oil and Gas Directory. Again a career twist took me through computer assembling, software, and trouble shooting. And towards 1998 got introduced to linux, system administration and by 2000 was into supporting cyber cafes to use linux on servers. Then again dropped into doing free lance jobs on freelance sites
