Meet Nadeem! He is a front-end HubSpot developer who has been a member of the Computan team for many years.  Nadeem is also a man of big spirituality too.  In this installment of Behind The Coding Nadeem talks to us about his family, hybrid HubSpot websites, and falling asleep on a boat while fishing.

What are the last three things you Googled and why? 

The last 3 things I Googled are all related to HubSpot and developing in HubSpot. 

What specifically were you trying to do? 

Well, the HubSpot team I work on builds hybrid HubSpot websites. 

What do you mean by ‘hybrid’ HubSpot sites? 

At Computan we define HubSpot Hybrid sites as those with a middleware that pulls data from a third-party system and it needs to interface with the website somehow.  

So a website that has custom back-end and front-end coding in it? 

Yes exactly. 

How does that play into what you are Googling? 

Like I am trying to dynamically create categories, create content blocks in categories and show/hide different content.  So I was Googling around to see how other developers have handled that. 

That is very interesting Nadeem! Who are 3 people you'd like to have dinner with at the same time and why? 

The first person would be my younger brother Basit. 

Yes! We know Basit really well here at Computan.  Why would you want to take Basit out? 

He is my younger brother. Obviously, it is my responsibility to raise and mentor.  He is an intern here at Computan as well.    

Yes, of course! Who else would you like to take out? 

My family.  My wife and my sister. 

The family seems very important to you. 

Yes, it definitely is. 

What would you guys eat? Spicy food? 

Spicy pizza! Chicken Tikka Pizza  

That sounds good 

It tastes delicious too! 

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

A little while ago. I and six other friends went fishing.  It was a lovely evening, and we had a perfect cool breeze.  All 7 of us fell asleep one after the other. 

At the same time? 

Hahaha! Yes, basically at the same time.    

And when you woke up, you just laughed about it? 

Yes, hysterically laughed about it. 

What do you love about Coding? 

I love working with HubL and keeping up with HubSpot product updates. I always love when new features come out in HubL  

When is the first time you saw a computer? 

I was probably 11 or 12 years old, and I saw it at my uncle’s house.    

What kind of computer was it? 

It was a Pentium 2!  

What did you use it for? 

Generally, we just used it to play games and have fun.  We had a great childhood!   

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

I am really interested in fishing and I also enjoy catching birds with nets! I release them afterward, though.
