A veteran developer and architect especially in the field of anti-virus, system level and email security - includes image recognition, system detection & data synthesis. Wrote one of the world’s first (i) real-time macro virus detection - sold as MacroPro in the late 90s, (ii) the first industry script for cleaning engines for viruses, (iii) a personal firewall engine for Norman AntiVirus, (iv) a VPN Ipsec engine and (v) an app on Windows in mid 2000.

Since joining Shoppr in 2014, I have been heavily involved in the development of the backend using Django, AWS and MongoDB. I believe in Edwards Deming principle of relying on product testing stats rather than micro supervisions.
Utilising my previous experiences, we were able to build an image recognition system, enterprise-level data mining tool & make sense of our data in under 2 years.
Through my professional experience, I have a high interest in imagery and photography, often getting into discussions on sensors. I also moderate one of the largest camera forums: DPReview (>25M traffic/month).
Founded the Python user group Malaysia, the largest user group for Python developers in Malaysia.
