My name is Bashar Abdullah and I’m a Ruby on Rails developer and entrepreneur from Kuwait. I am working currently on the football tickets search engine Tathkarti.com.
In the past, and during my corporate and government career, I have worked mostly on php and Java, and it was there I realized how tedious it is to develop without a framework, or use a heavy one instead. I needed something agile and powerful to help me, and I had already seen little of the Rails magic back then. Comparing it to what was out at the time, I knew I should convert and be on the Rails. No regrets! Except not being there even before maybe.
