Hellooo ๐Ÿ‘‹

I’m Tahar! Looks like you’ve stumbled upon my little hideout on the internet…

This page is pretty boring summary of who I am and where I work. Not the most exciting stuff, but I figured you might like to know a little bit more about who’s responsible for all the nonsense on this website. ๐Ÿ˜…

A little bit about me… I’m currently employed as a software engineer at Deloitte’s cloud engineering team in Amsterdam. Before joining Deloitte, I was employed as a game developer at Sumo Digital, where I worked on Sackboy: A Big Adventure for PlayStation 4 and 5. It’s a brilliant little game. If you happen to have a PlayStation 5 console, I’d highly recommend grabbing yourself a copy. It’s great fun and you might even spot my name in the credits! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Nowadays I mainly work on microservices using Java, Kafka, and Spring Boot. It may not sound as exciting as game development, but to me it’s just as fun as working on games!

In my spare time I absolutely love to mess around with silly little side projects and random experiments. This allows me to learn new technologies and discover cool things I might not be able to do at work because they’re… well… useless! ๐Ÿคฃ

This website is a way for me to share my fun side projects with the world. If you’re into that stuff, be sure to check back regularly. Feel free to reach out on LinkedIn if some of my projects have piqued your interest. I’m always up for a (virtual) coffee chat! โ˜•

Anyway, enough rambling for now! Thanks a bunch for checking out my blog, I appreciate it a lot. I hope you’ll enjoy the content on this website as much as I loved writing it.
