I am Abdullah Rubiyath. I go by the name Alif. I am a Software Engineer at Microsoft. I am based in Seattle, WA, originally from Toronto. I am a Sun Certified Java Programmer and Zend Certified PHP-5 Engineer.

In my blog, I write tutorials, tricks and share solutions to different problems. Some of my posts have been posted in places such as stackoverflow (selected answer links to my blog), Google’s JS Bug (description references by blog to replicate the bug).

I also wrote the popular jQuery plugin ezMark.

When I am not coding, I enjoy reading poetry, traveling and sometimes I play classic Games.
