I’m Zainab (spelled Zei-na-eb), a
23 25* year old developer who loves to break electronics apart to see their inner workings, and been at it since kindergarten!
I come from the tiny little island country called Bahrain, and live with my noisy, 13-member family. And oh, I have a twin sister to boot! 😀
I graduated from Bahrain Polytechnic July, 2014 with a bachelor’s in ICT – Programming major. After graduating, I originally wanted to become independent and live humbly on sales from my own projects.
Unfortunately, I learned the hard lesson of you have to spend money to make money. :/
So, I changed my strategy and now I’m working at a startup full time while I invest my salary into my business and my self, developing skills I lack as I go.
Why Z’s Laboratories
I love learning, it’s my passion, it’s what drives me to make all the crazy decisions I tend to make, despite the head-turns…
However, if I just learn and learn and learn non stop, without it benefiting anyone beside myself, it makes me feel like I didn’t do all I could, you know?
So, I decided to teach and share what I work on, and perhaps aim to make actual useful things that can make people’s lives better. Like games, for example…
Free. Also, I HATE ADS
I get a distaste in my mouth whenever I see scamy ads and whatnot on otherwise helpful sites, not to mention simply having them often degrades the users’ experience. That’s why I have no intention of employing them.
I am also a strong believer in open education, as I myself benefit greatly from open courses like those found on Coursera. That’s why I commit to sharing all educational content I create for free, and if I sell something, it’ll be ‘extras‘ meant for convenience sake and perhaps for existing professionals.
Courses and lessons meant for beginners, hobbyists and wannabe professionals will always be free.
