Salamtura – “The Inception”

Abdulsalam Umar

BSc Computer Science (First Class)

At long last my blog is live, i have procrastinated for 3yrs on setting up a blog. I am not a very good writer I guess but I have a lot to share. Well before I start posting my boring stuff, let me give little bio about myself.

I come from the Northern part of Nigeria. I attended Mary Travis nursery and primary school for primary education, and Zamani College Kaduna for my secondary school. After secondary school, I studied Business Administration at Ahmadu Bello University Zaria for a year before i transferred to INTI International University Malaysia, a franchise university to Coventry University UK, to study Computer Science in 2007. After my first degree, I went on for the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) for one year in 2009 which i worked for Chams Plc for one year. Currently, i am pursuing my masters degree in Msc Internet Software Systems at the University of Birmingham in the UK.

I have a belief that success in life is not about making good choices but also having the belief and passion for choices that you make. For me, I started grooming my career in Business Administration which I thought was a good choice for me. It would have been a disaster if I had kept myself in that line. My first degree was  in Computer Science , which I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science with a First Class Honours. I was good with computers since my young age and I have met a vast computer world which I fell in love with. The passion I have for computing has been the key factor for the excellence in my academics. I happen to be very good practically and technically especially with the major programming languages. I am a Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP), a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA), Oracle Certified SQL Expert, and well more to come ;).

A career in computing has been my dream ever since I came into meaningful contact with this latest tool that science has put into man’s hands. Having found computing to be my hobby and passion, I am looking forward to having a successful and influential career in the Information Technology world and also intend to make effort to improve the current backward situation of the IT industry of my home country.

At my leisure times, I play polo! Yes I love horses. They put a smile on my face and I can ride on them all day. I am a football fan (Red Devil :p), I like keeping myself current with the major football leagues in Europe. I love hanging out with friends going for movies, eating out, playing pool, and playing video games (I woop asses in soccer games so beware). When am not doing any of these, I will definitely be in front of my computer(Work Station) doing what I do best (code).

Well I hope I have planted an idea in your brain of who am I and what to expect from me! 🙂
