Ashkan Modus Operandi!

Welcome to Ashkan's Life

The way I learn, the way I work and the way I live and finally how I give away what I has earned.

This is Ashkan Mohammadi; Server Administrator & System Consultant.

Bio

Mixing more than 20 years of career experience and my own acquaintance, I've helped a lot of people overcome their IT based problems;

Each client should get his/her uniqe solution and there is no single approach that work for everyone; That's my opinion. I think that self-improvement and continuous learning are essential part of my personal life and work trajectory. Organized and systematic work on any field, make it better progressively and help our modern world grow faster with sustainable resolutions. Passing highschool education in one of the Nodet Schools(National Organization for Development of Exceptional Talents) flattern my way to get Bachelor of Science in Sharif University of Technology.

After 45 years from the first breath, now I have a nuclear family consist of my wife and two children. I'm living a happy life and appreciate my wife supportive type. My wife and I are a good team to conduct a beautiful living and to prepare conditions and facilities for the kids to learn and grow in a secure and warm family atmosphere.

Work & Projects

As a System Engineer I love building solutions on the high end technologies and help companies and businesses grow faster. Network, OS (Linux and Windows), Virtualizations, Cloud Hosting, Clustering, Automation and ... are the subjects that form my day-to-day area of work. Deploying integrated and robust systems and infrastructures by applying coordinated software and tools is my forte. Define the project and leave the rest for Ashkan; That's how it works. One of my weaknesses, is inability to doing different works together because of appeal to concentration on the running task. I respect my team members and coleagues and do anything that could help improve overall performance of the team and organization.

Evolution is passing through complexity to reach simplicity.

This is my slogan and I have tried to implement it on every project I contributed to.

52Hertz

This project remind me of strange 52hertz whale; The 52-hertz whale is an individual whale of unidentified species which calls at the very unusual frequency of 52 Hz. It's really an amazing project that turn your audio content to a live radio station in a few clicks.

HeUI

HeCSS is a minimal and agile CSS library with a sense of efficiency and simplicity. It's developed for using with Horuph Studio Frameword, but you can use it in any web project. Just like this website that developed purely with php and HeCSS. It's worth to try it.

Movie: Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)

by Don Hall, Carlos López Estrada

Raya and the Last Dragon features an outstanding voice cast, including Kelly Marie Tran as the voice of the intrepid warrior Raya; Awkwafina as the legendary dragon, Sisu; Gemma Chan as Raya’s nemesis, Namaari; Daniel Dae Kim as Raya’s visionary father, Benja; Sandra Oh as Namaari’s powerful mother, Virana; Benedict Wong as Tong, a formidable giant; Izaac Wang as Boun, a 10-year-old entrepreneur; Thalia Tran as the mischievous toddler Little Noi; Alan Tudyk as Tuk Tuk, Raya’s best friend and trusty steed; Lucille Soong as Dang Hu, the leader of the land of Talon; Patti Harrison as chief of the Tail land; and Ross Butler as chief of the Spine land.

Raya and the Last Dragon takes us on an exciting, epic journey to the fantasy world of Kumandra, where humans and dragons lived together long ago in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world—it’s going to take trust and teamwork as well.

Work Experience

I've gone so far to achieve today's level of expertise, but I think, it's nothing and there is so much more to acquire. Surely exploring the technology world and learning something new is not going to be stopped.
