My name is Hafiz Faraz Mukhtar. I am technology speaker, designer, game maker, full stack web developer, application developer and internet marketer focused on productivity. Analyzing and conveying concepts of adeptness across various domains is what drives me. I blog to make people competent, to distribute code and write tutorials that teaches efficiently, and to be as efficient as possible in the process.
I have a background in designing, development and internet marketing of software, game, 3D modeling, animation, web and windows store apps. I have bachelor degrees in computer science and arts from GCUF and AIOU respectively. I have worked with 3D modeling, designing and web since 2008. The majority of the time from 2010 to 2012 I have worked as designer & developer for Higher Education Commission of Pakistan and Tauseef Enterprises Private Limited. In 2012, my focus has steadily transformed towards the concept of productivity. I decided to be a front-runner – the common theme of the projects both in software development and other areas like entrepreneurship, personal productivity, carrier goals etc. In 2013, I was nominated as Microsoft Student Partner and with that title in hand I had the honor to conduct more than 50 on-site training sessions on different Microsoft technologies at several universities. Year 2014 brought good news for me, when I joined Microsoft as intern.
Beside Microsoft, currently I am running several online sites, developing games, store apps, branding products, marketing businesses and lots of other cool stuff.
