Software Engineering Undergrad

MSA Uni | Egypt


EMERGENT UPDATE: I am getting assigned to the Egyptian army, to serve my obligatory military service. It shall last for 13 months. It has nothing to do with math or education. I won’t have access to the internet, and weirdly study tools are prohibited. My wish now is to recover afterward.

A senior undergrad student, and a hobbyist of Theoretical Computer Science.

People’s Perception: People usually think of me as either (1) a programmer who turns dull math/physics into something useful, or (2) a theorist who writes papers of no real-life impact. I exonerate them from such misconception as theoretical computer scientists, are very bad at communicating their fields. You could even see our title is not so poetic like a string theorist or evolutionary biologist.

Why This Blog? I started this blog for communicating my self-study progress, and in hope of establishing collaborative works.

Society & Community: I wholeheartedly support open science movement, and moderate TCS’s subreddit and TCS’s awesome list.

Good Memories:

Non-Serious: If I am not doing any serious work, I would probably be listening to Taylor Davis. I used to be a video-gamer but I gave up on them as they are repetitive and lack meaningful stories.
