About Me:

I am Abdul Qabiz (@abdulqabiz) from Kanpur, India.

This is my personal blog and I write about software, programming, technology, and my other experiences (entrepreneurship, business, etc).

When I am away from keyboard, I spend time with family (friends), riding my motorcycle (short/long tours), or having coffee at my favourite cafe while reading something.
