Hi! Welcome to my landing page!

Introduction

About Youssef

I am currently studying Computing Science and Physics at the University of Glasgow, in my third year.


From my early years, I've always had an interest in computers and technology. The first time I used a computer was when I was 2.



My interest in programming sparked when I was 5-6 years old playing video games when I started to wonder about how these games work. I even started to draw sketches and mind maps about games I'd build on my own if I could!

I read my first programming article when I was 7 and I still remember it to this day. I started to learn C# when I was 9 and almost perfected it at 12. I am now fluent in many programming languages.

Languages and Technologies

Here are some of the technologies with which I have experience:

Swift
Objective-C
Cocoa Touch
Java
HTML/CSS
Javascript/ES6
Node.js
React
React Native
Linux
Git
Python
Django
PHP
Apache
MySQL
Bash
C#
C

I'm incredibly passionate about programming, app development and software. My ultimate goal is to change the world, if even a little bit, by creating software that helps people. Here are some of the personal projects I'm currently working on:

Images from projects I'm working on. The first, Matrix Master 2, is on the App Store. And the second, The Standard Model, is a work in progress.

To learn more about me, I highly encourage you to read my first blog post, right here.


I am also quite passionate about a bunch of other things, which you can learn about here.



Main Projects

I am currently developing an app called The Standard Model, which lets users manipulate and learn about fundamental particles and their interactions. The app can also draw Feynman Diagrams for the user. It is currently in a beta version, with most of the main functionality up.

Antimatter annihlates when it comes into contact with matter. The goal of this particle physics inspired game is to destroy the antimatter before it comes into contact with matter.

This is quite a funny one. This was my first real collaborative project. I had this idea with a friend of mine at the time and we agreed that she would work on the graphics while I code the game.

The idea of the game is that Toot, the flying camel, takes his revenge on his previous captors... Read more


Hungry the Monkey was the very first iOS game, and the first game as a matter of fact, I published. As such, it certainly means very much to me.

It requires the player to feed Hungry, who is a monkey, by tapping on any and all the food whilst avoiding feeding him poison.

The game is... Read more


I created the name and website Uzusoft as a startup name under which to release my apps. You can also see the prefix Uzu in some of my other projects (UzuConvert, UzuColor, etc). This actually comes from my childhood nickname, Oozoo.

At the moment, I am... Read more
