Hi, I'm Achraf!

About me


I am a professional software engineer from Casablanca, Morocco. If you managed to get to this website, then consider it as a random casualty, and I apologize in advance for that. In any case, this is my personal-not-so-scret sanctuary, and I welcome you by the same occasion.

I am a technology enthusiast, I like to deal with complex software designs to make them as simple as possible, hence my big interest in design patterns and software architecture. I am also fond of AI and big data, that's why I am currently teaching myself some Scala. I also building random - usefull software packages in different technology stacks.

My goal is simple – making as much contributions as I can to this great community which, I am proud to be part of.
