Hi, I’m Hazirah. Bruneian, she/her, in my 30s.
Front-end web developer, incurable collector of offline and digital content, and a tendency towards Brunei-centred projects: Just Bruneians / Open Brunei / Brunei Cabinet Database. Formerly of B:Read.
I’ve been online and making websites since 1998. I had a blog in the early 2000s, but this current blog is from 2010 and doesn’t contain posts from my earlier blog.
Here is a little resume of sorts, and let me tell you, it took me till 2020 to put up a section like this here.

Bio & Background
BSc Computer Science. CV includes almost 10 years’ work experience in ICT, including roles as a graduate-level executive, civil servant, and then as a software developer. More recently, in 2018, I became self-employed as a full-time freelance web developer.
In 2020, I embarked on the Just Bruneians project. Previously, I co-founded B:Read in 2011, and retired from the committee in 2016. I co-run Open Brunei (now on unofficial hiatus) and one of my major ongoing projects is the Brunei Cabinet Database.
