Hi there, my name is Mahmood. I am a Ruby on Rails and Django web developer, but also a translator and language instructor. I was born in the middle of the central mountains of Afghanistan, grew up in Iran, did a part of my higher education in Kabul and got my B.A & M.A degrees (and most of my working experiences) in Paris the place that comes to mind when I think of home.
If you are planning on creating your website powered by a software that matches your personal and professional needs, I would be happy to help. It would also be a pleasure to be part of your development team if you already have one.
In any case, please feel free to contact me so we can discuss it over a real or virtual coffee.
Most of the time, with the above 👆 technologies you end up with a powerful solution. However, if your project requires other technologies, my programmer mates and I would be happy to work with you as a team.
Get ready for a pleasant surprise! 😉
