Jahed Ahmed

About

My name's Jahed. I'm a Software Developer living in London, United Kingdom. Other than making software, I'm into video games, anime, manga and most of the things in between.

What are you working on?

You can find out what I'm working on by checking my blog and following me on various social networks. In general, my projects consist of games, web apps, and various open source software.

If you want to support my work, consider donating. Even the smallest amount helps.

What did you study?

The majority of my practical experience is self-taught gradually over years of tinkering and picked up in the workplace through research and collaboration.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. For my dissertation, I made "Audio Dungeon"; an audio game for the visually impaired.

After that, I worked as a Software Developer, and eventually a Senior Software Developer, at Unruly, an ad-tech company.

I'm currently focusing on Open Source and improving my non-technical skills related to Game Development.

How do I pronounce your name?

"Jahed" is pronounced like Jarhead without the 'r'. You can pronounce "Ahmed" as "Ah-med".

My name's somewhat common so I use other names for my accounts when it's taken; such as "Hedja" and "HedjaHead". These are just a play on my real name, so just call me Jahed.

How can I contact you?

You can find me on Twitter. Alternatively you can email me, but there's no guarantee you'll pass my spam filter.
