Hey, I'm Alin Ali Hassan

A Senior Software Engineer from Amsterdam

As a passionate software/cloud engineer, I have a wide background in backend, mobile and cloud development. I have worked on a wide range of projects, from performant programming languages to modern web applications and APIs.

I am 23 years old and have been a developer for as long as I can think. The technologies I work with are Python using FastAPI for backend, and Typescript for backend and/or frontend using Express, NestJS, Next.js, React, React Native, etc. I code in my free time as well to start new personal projects or learn new technologies and frameworks in an ever-evolving domain.

When I am not writing code I spend time with my friends and family, play games or travel the world by bike. I come from a multicultural background, being born in the United Arab Emirates, being half Syrian and half Romanian, and living in The Netherlands, I've lived in very different cultural environments.
