About me

Hi there ! As-salamu alaykum ! , Welcome to my blog.  I am an open-source enthusiast & firm believer in Cloud Computing as you can probably tell. I received my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Alexandria University, Egypt with an overall average of 84.27%. During my undergrad years, I was part of the Alexandria University Science Club Team. The team received awards in national competitions including being ranked 1st nationally in Electronics in 2005 and 3rd nationally in Programming in 2007.

I received my M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Western University in Canada under the supervision of Prof. Hamada Ghenniwa with an overall grade of A+. I was part of the CDS-Engineering Group, where my research was focused on Multimedia Intelligence. During my Masters, I received the Best Research Achievements Award from the CDS-Engineering Group and was nominated to the Graduate Student Teaching Award.

I became involved in Openstack in early 2015 and later presented demystification of Openstack’s network components at the Boston and Vancouver summits. I started the Southwestern Ontario User Group in 2017 to get the Openstack user-base in the region to meet, share knowledge and have fun! .  In 2019, I  served as a Track chair on the AI, HPC and Machine Learning programming committee for the Shanghai Open Infrastructure summit, and am currently serving as the Vice-chair of the Openstack User Committee.

In this blog, you will find tips and tutorials on subjects that I find interesting. I am always looking for opportunities to learn, grow and add value, so any thoughts, feedback, collaboration opportunities are more than welcome, feel free to drop me a line !
