Hi, I'm Omar!

I'm an iOS engineer in the RnD team at Backbase, where we build tools to help deliver next-level digital banking.

On the way from Aleppo (my hometown) to Amsterdam (where I currently live), I went through several pitstops including Dubai, Cairo, LA, and Istanbul. As a welcome consequence, I speak Arabic, English, and Turkish, with Dutch as my next language to learn.

I love building iOS frameworks, web APIs and contributing to open source projects. Swift is my favored tool, but I also enjoy working with other languages like Python and Javascript.

On the side, I enjoy practicing Arabic calligraphy, looking for the best cup of espresso in town, and relaxing with a fun session of board games with friends and family.



You can find me online on Twitter, Github, and Linkedin.

I enjoy sharing knowledge with fellow software enthusiasts and would be happy to meet over a cup of coffee, take part in conferences, or be a guest on podcasts.

This is a fully integrated open-source project that uses NextJS, Redux, and Django to build. Grab your copy from Github
