I’m Shoaib Ahmed – a software developer who loves programming, poetry & philosophy.

I’m mostly into design & development of software solutions for IoT - ranging from system software for fail-safe high availability cloud servers, to firmware & middleware development for embedded systems, to web and mobile application development.

I’m also a decent urdu Sufi poet and self-proclaimed philosopher. I have composed in excess of a dozen ghazals and have written a couple of short discourses on metaphysical & epistemological philosophy based on the writings of Al-Ghazel, Rene Descartes & Immanuel Kant. Sufi-Al-Hussaini is my nom-de-plume (pen name).

Areas of work

I’ve worked extensively with lightweight messaging protocols and frameworks for IoT like MQTT and KAA Project, POSIX network and system programming, SDK development (in C & C++) and bindings in multiple languages (like Python and Swift), and third party SDK integrations.

I’ve also done a fair bit of firmware & middleware development for embedded systems (ARM, AVR, etc.), mobile application development (for iOS) and web development (using Laravel & Django frameworks).

I’ve made some notable contributions to several open-source projects and I’m actively involved in open source communities such as mosquitto and sunxi.


I prefer email for professional conversations.
