Bushra is a QC engineer on the Computan team.  She works on many front-end/UI development projects that we face and helps make sure our work is polished and tidy before it gets into client hands.  In this installment of Behind The Coding Bushra talks about how she’d set up her ideal dinner, her favourite fashion brands and her special ‘need for speed.’  

Hi Bushra! How are you?  

Hi Sajeel.  I am good thanks.   

What are the last 3 things you Googled and why?   

The most recent thing I Googled was ‘how to become a millionaire without doing any work?’ 

What a question! 
I didn’t really expect an answer or anything! Just for fun. 
Did you get a good answer? 
Not a really good answer no! 

Ok! What else? 

Let’s see…I Googled a few fashion brands. 

Which ones? 

Nike, Gucci, Adidas. 

For any reason in particular? 
Not really! Just to make me happy.  See the new things they have available and the new clothing lines. 

Ok, what else? 
Let’s see.  Another brand! Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Perfume.   

Is that your favorite type of perfume? 
Yes! I will buy it after Google finishes telling me how to become a millionaire! 
When was the last time you worked after hours to solve a hard problem? 

I don’t think I ever had.  When there is a deadline I tend to go into overdrive to solve a problem and usually get through things.  I am still young in my career, but so far I haven’t needed extra time to solve hard problems! 
Who are 3 people you’d like to have dinner with and why? 

I have an answer for this already. 

Ok! Who is on your list? 
For sure my sister  

Why your sister? 

Because she’s an expert photographer and videographer! She can make sure to capture all of the priceless moments of this event! 

Ah, so it is for practical reasons! 

Yes exactly. 

Ok, who else? 

My brother.  

Why your brother? 

He is a really good driver.  He follows all the rules of the road perfectly and can get us to where we need to be safe and sound. 

Ah, another practical and logistical reason! 

Yes! You are sensing a pattern here. 

I am of course! Who would the final guest be? 

My friend Aysha! She’s a blogger and really good at social media.  She can make sure that the dinner gets all sorts of views and people will see the great time we had. 

This sounds more like a marketing project than a dinner! 

Hahaha.  Yes, it does. 

Where were you when you first saw a laptop or desktop? 

I was 10.  My uncle came from England and came to show us some new things he got.  One was a laptop,  I was totally amazed to see that he was holding an entire computer in one hand! I was mesmerized by it! 

I think everyone had a first experience like that. 

Yes for sure.  It’s amazing what these machines can do despite their size.  Big productivity in small packages! 

When was the last time you cried tears of laughter? 

A short while ago when I met my friends.  We had a fun time talking about different stories about different teachers of ours.

What is something your teammates don’t know about you? 

Well, many don’t know that I went from Ms. To Mrs. a short while ago.  

Yes! That’s right.  How has the adjustment been so far? 

So far so good! I think also some of the things I’ve shared here they don’t know either! 

Very true also Bushra! Thanks for sharing all of this with us! 

You are welcome!
