  • "I like the fact that there are always new things to learn about technology and that keeps my brain engaged. It's kind of like solving a puzzle and it is satisfying to create something that can help people in their work.I hate it when sometimes I work all day on a problem and sometimes it feels like you aren't getting anything done."

  • "In today's world of perfection, hard work and the important is unemployment in third world countries like Pakistan, Software Engineering is much better than other field of study, because no one can be unemployed if he is a good programmer and can easily earn an average salary in the market. Also it's very interesting to create different kind of application in today's fast growing world of IT."
