Who Am I?
Hi I'm Vahid Mostofi. I was born in Iran
and raised in
Tehran, a four-seasoned capital city of my homeland, a land of sun and a
dazzling diversity of cultures and customs all of which are fabulous and
beaming. I am from a family of four having my parents and younger
brother residing in Tehran. I am in my mid twenties (if you call
I'm a developer and have done freelance projects during my
graduate studies. I've been developing backend with
NodeJS and frontend using React. But
recently I started
using Golang for
my research and I guess I'm in love again (seriously, it's amazing!!).
I know it's probably out of context, but between 2015 and 2017 (after
I finished my Bachelor Program at Tehran University in Computer
Science), I was
the co-founders of youtabgames. We developed couple
video games back then. You can check them out in the game
section(I'll add them soon). I have not followed that line of
activity since 2017. From 2017, I've been working on backend
Data Science and DevOps operations.
In 2017, I started my first Master at Shahid Beheshti University. I
worked on generating graphs (read about Network
Science) using generative models of Deep
Learning. I'm not using Deep Learning now (sadly), but
back then I was really into Machine Learning and Deep Learning,
Specially Generative Models.
Having accomplished my master in Shahid Beheshti University, I was
awarded a place in Calgary
University in which I have been currently doing my second master.
For the time I'm working on performance evaluation of Microservice
Applications. My goal is combine my knowledge in Data Science and
Machine Learning and apply them on the enormous amount of data I can
extract from microservice stacks (for example when they are being
managed by container orchestrators) to optimize them.
I came to Calgary in August 2019, being accompanied with my
wife to whom I
married a month before residing in Calgary. My wife has graduated
so called University of Shahid Beheshti. We both share the same
major in master. I am delighted to have her beside me. We have both
experienced the blessing of being partners as well as colleagues.
Lastly, during this almost 10 years of joyful computer programming
journey, I've had different colleagues which became my friends. I've
friends which we launched a startup together, grew and even failed
but the journey made us closer. To me the enriching part of any
project is building connections and friendship across the world. I
do believe that hard work will pay off if it is managed correctly in
