I absolutely love to code!
Hi, my name is Hashem Zahran, a passionate freelance Web & Mobile UI/UX Developer based in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Alexandria, Egypt.
Holding a Degree in Sociology and a Diploma in Human-Computer Interaction I initially started my career as a Web UI Developer for a firm in Alexandria that specialized in Cutting Edge Web Technologies. Always a visionary entrepreneur at heart with several involvements since my teen years like founding a computer hardware company at the age of eighteen, I have since co-founded & operated multiple design agencies & worked as a Front-End Developer for several tech companies as well.
In late 2010 I Joined eSpace Technologies and lead their design team, I managed to work closely with some of TechStars graduates like Marginize. In 2011 I joined the Startup Weekend Global Facilitators Team and started to evangelize the startup ecosystem in my own town and since then I have been known as the Godfather of Alexandrian Startups. I have involved in and initiated several Startup Communities in the city including Startup Meet-up Alex, Design Mondays, and Alexandria Startup Club with a mission to foster and empower entrepreneurship Eco-system within Alexandria.
I co-founded a few tech startups including Tabshora, WalletIO, & VoicedHQ. I also co-directed the chapter of The Founder Institute in Egypt to help empowering young entrepreneurs along with my main firm Cloud7Labs which provided a 6-week pre-incubator program focused on the first phase of launching a web or mobile startup.
I believe that entrepreneurship is what will take the Egyptian economy to the next level and it is exactly what fits the Egyptian post-revolution economy. Startups should get all the support needed to grow and expand by the ecosystem community leaders & of course the government and that what will boost Egypt's economy.
Finally, I create wire-frames, prototypes, mock-ups, & layouts using my favorite design tool Illustrator and my favorite editor Sublime Text. I love developing for WordPress with clear code and creative results. I also help brands in discovering new ways to interact with their customers via latest trends in social media marketing.
