About Me

Hello, I’m AJ Sultan, a full-stack web developer based in Riyadh, KSA.

I have over 9 years of experience building clean and efficient web applications. I know my way around the entire web development stack, from accessible and user-friendly interfaces, to API integrations and server architecture and management, and even fun stuff like OAuth2, 2FA, porting legacy code to new stacks.

I also work on automation script to make work easier, faster and more accurate. I build bots to help manage things, and do web scraping / data mining as well when needed.

As a young boy, I learned to build my own personal computer at home. My first foray to the world wide web was through my father's work laptop, as it was the only computer at home that could connect to the internet using dial-up. I remember waking up in the middle of the night, while my father was sleeping, so I could explore the web longer. At a young age, I believed the internet was the future. As an adult, I would like to believe I'm helping build the future.
