It was at the University of Colorado that Asif was "hand picked" for what become his first major web based project. For almost two years Asif worked alongside a team undertaking to research, design, build and launch a new web site for the university. This project followed strict best practice software lifecycle management principles, and included interviews with key stakeholders, requirements specification, designing and developing interfaces and tools to engage prospective students, and front end design of the web site.
Asif has practiced in several countries over the past few years, and acquired a variety of experience in various technology fields. Based in Dubai, Asif took on the role of Managing Partner for Ingenium Partners FZE, an IT services consulting firm of 4 partners, focusing on customising and building financial software solutions. A significant part of Asif's role was to oversee the high level development of the software; early success doubled the size of the technology team in the first year.
Now residing in London, Asif is working involved with a variety of art and technology related projects, ranging from Vesica to Museum Technologies.
