My full name is Muhammad Umer Azad (I go by Umer). I am a software engineer living in Seattle. I love reading about and dabbling with distributed systems, runtime environments and new languages. These days I am working @facebook in the Distributed AI team to help scale ML/AI experimentation infrastructure across the board (Facebook, Instagram, Oculus).
