Hi there, I am Diba, a backend developer based in London.
I studied software engineering and have been in the industry for 5 years now. I started coding back in university with the C language. But then, in my second year, I discovered Laravel, and haven't looked back since. I just love the possibilities that it offers.
One thing that really drives me is solving programming problems. Some of the best times I've had were with my colleagues, trying to figure out problems, and coming up with solutions.
I have a strong willingness to learn new skills and technologies in order to develop a code that is enjoyable to work with. Additionally, I find it rewarding to teach others what I have learned and have been actively working on increasing my involvement in this area.
While I've mostly worked as a backend developer, I'm really interested in learning more about frontend technologies and DevOps. I've explored both of these areas outside of work and am eager to gain more experience.
When I'm not coding, I play piano, watch movies and romanticise life by reading books and drinking coffee in cute cafes 🙂.
My current goal is to learn as much as I can in areas of tech that intrigue me and share what I learn with others, and I'm excited to see where my journey takes me.
