Hi! I’m Hesham, a software engineer based in Egypt. I’m currently a Director of Engineering at Instabug. I occasionally write about software development on this blog, and sometimes other random topics too.

I started writing code when I was 12 years old. My first lines of code were in Visual Basic 6 and I immediately got fascinated by the ability to create something useful from code I’ve typed into a computer. My interest in software development kept growing until it eventually turned into a career.


I released the first version of my app, TracKit, in 2013, and have been working since then on developing and growing it. TracKit started as a very basic numbers tracker for my personal use but has grown into a much more versatile daily tracker used by thousands of users.
