About Shamseen Rahman
I'm currently studying biomedical engineering at Boston University. Heh, I actually left my job as a software engineer to follow my interests.
I've founded Firefly, a totally infant nonprofit organization working to develop a program of after-school clubs in disadvantaged neighborhoods to do cool things from dance to robotics to synthetic biology! But I have 0 idea how to run a business--let a lone a non-profit--so I came here to get some help with that
I'm pretty good with helping organize workflow for a team or project, it's what I've done as an engineer and as an intern for an Educational Development institution in Bangladesh.
I've also acted as a Business Analyst and lead for adding a feature to software I was hired to work on.
I've just recently left my position as a software engineer. I still want to keep on with mobile and software development but more on my own pace, compared to a 9-5 job. Ya feel?
I have professional experience with building websites and enterprise-level business-facing software/web apps. The GUI was in AngularJS, server and business logic in C# and ASP.NET, and a little bit of database design/upkeep with NoSQL. I was also part Business Analyst (cross-functional team) and sat with the clients to get the requirements and lead the addition of a new feature (but also code some parts because.. well my job description.)
As for mobile app development, I've done them for school projects and whatnot. I've only used the Xamarin.Forms framework (self-taught), which lets you build out Android, iOS, and Windows apps all at once. So I code it in C# and the designs in XAML, and the framework compiles and renders into that operating system's native platforms! If you want to read up on it:
