My name is Syed Rehan, and I’m a 33 year old Software Engineer. Everyone calls me Syed, and I’ve been known amongst my online (and even some offline) friends as “HDD” [Hardcore Dev Dude] since about 1997. I grew up moving around a lot but at least spent all of my high school years at a single school, which was Ducie High School in Manchester and got my software engineering degree from UMIST. In my spare time during my uni days i was white hat hacker and then gradually moved into full programming and now many yonks later i’m polyglot programmer.
I wrote my first J2ME game which was space invader inspired and you can view here
