Mohamed Kassem, or MK as we call him here, is a Project Manager for WordPress and DevOps at Computan. He is also an incredibly private person who doesn’t like to share information and enlisted the help of Chat GPT (his ‘special’ friend) to have this conversation.  In this installment of Behind The Coding, MK’s special friend outlines different things he researches, who he thinks he’d like to have dinner with and a unique secret talent that even his closest teammates don’t know about.


Hi MK! What are the last 3 things you Googled? 

Hi Sajeel. Let me share my screen and pull up Chat GPT.  Ok, here are the last 3 things I Googled. Best practices for WordPress website optimization 

Why do you think that’s important? 

As a project manager overseeing WordPress projects, I strive to ensure our websites are optimized for performance and speed. I recently searched for the latest best practices in this area. 

Ok.  What else, MK? 

It looks like it says I would Google about it. DevOps tools comparisons. 


To enhance our DevOps processes, I researched different tools available in the market to compare their features, capabilities, and suitability for our projects. This helps me make informed decisions about adopting new tools or improving our existing toolchain. 

OK, what else is your special friend saying you’ll Google? 

Project management methodologies 

Would you ever Google that? 

I believe in continuous learning and staying updated with the latest project management methodologies. I recently searched for information on agile project management practices and other frameworks to explore new ways of improving team collaboration and project efficiency. 

Your special friend knows you! When did you last work after hours to solve a hard problem? 

That was probably last week when a WordPress issue was affecting user experience.  

Hahaha. Can we get your special pal to elaborate? 

No.  We can’t 

Ok. According to your special friend, who are 3 people you'd like to have dinner with simultaneously, and why? 

Probably my siblings.   

Ok! When was the last time you cried tears of laughter? 

According to my friend, I don’t cry tears of laughter often, but I am somewhat emotional in movies and cried while watching Braveheart.   

Who didn’t cry while watching Braveheart? What do you love about your job? 

According to my friend Chat GPT, the parts of my job that I like are seeing Tangible results. 

Is that true? 

Yeah. It actually is true.  One of the most gratifying aspects of being a PM is seeing the tangible results. Whether it's a website, a mobile app, or a software program, it’s nice to help create something functional and valuable. It’s fulfilling. 

When was the first time you saw a laptop/computer? 

Probably in the mid-late 90s. It looked like this https://98.js.org/   

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

According to my special friend Chat GPT, I have a deeply hidden talent and play the guitar.   

Hahaha! MK, you play the guitar? 

My special friend knows things about me that I don’t even know. 

If you could play the guitar, what song would you play? 

Probably the Unforgiven by Metallica.  That’s a guitar song, right? 

Yes, it is.   

Great. Then, put that down for the article. My teammates don’t know that I’ve always wanted to pretend to have a secret interest in the guitar and wanted to play Unforgiven by Metallica. 

You and your special friend are a match made in heaven, MK. 

Thank you.
