What is this site?

Hello! My name is Abanoub David Awad, (or ﺃﺑﺎﻧﻮﺏ ﺩﻳﻔﻴﺪ ﺃﻭﺍﺩ). I'm a software engineer, physicist, notary public, and ordained minister living in central New Jersey. What you're currently reading is my blog that I've slowly been crafting over the past few years while I tried to find my groove. It started out as a small publication on medium but as time went on I kept finding additional features I wanted that medium just didn't support. I didn't like that very much as time went on so I decided to just build the blog myself and combined my personal website and my blog together to form this site.

More about me:

I’m an aspiring philosopher, web developer, designer, programmer, physicist, mathematician, poet and person. Call me an engineer, call me a scientist, call me a dork, but I’m an Inventor. I have built some of my craziest ideas, from machine learning on large twitter datasets, to brain wave social networks, and self driving cars. I’ve been to a hackathon every single weekend, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I strongly believe in the original dream of the Free Software Foundation, and any code, or libraries that I write are usually open sourced as soon as they’re done (but usually before that!). I spend any and all free time I have reading about all kinds of different technologies, from alternating current theory, to game and graphic design in Unity and Blender, and even lane detection for self driving cars. If I have anything, it is dedication. I will get addicted to my projects, and constatntly try to make them as good as possible. I will move fast. I will break things. I will create, build, tweak and destroy. It’s who I am.

All I know is that I want to do and create a lot more while I still have the opportunity. If you wish to contact me please feel free; it is a personal goal of mine to be someone who provides happiness, and support to as many people as I can in my small lifetime, while I build devices that simplify as much of the human experience as possible. That’s the dream.
