My name is Osama bin Khalifa bin Sultan Alassiry Almaadeed , or more simply Osama Almaadeed.

I was born on the 29th of April 1973, and I grew up in many countries accompanying my father, who has been a diplomat since 1971, and was Ambassador of the state of Qatar in many countries until he retired in 1994.

I attended public and private schools in the countries where I lived. In these schools, I have a multicultural background (I fluently read, write, and speak Arabic, EnglishFrench, and Spanish). I discovered an interest in software and began programming computers at age 11.

I got married in February 1996, and I now have six children. I am an avid reader, and I enjoy writing and swimming.

In Summer 1997 I graduated from The University of Qatar with a BSc. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, with many elective courses in IT and Business.

That’s enough information for any reader who may have wandered here…. This is a personal blog, so I will not tell you about my job!
