Alameen Karim Merali, from Tanzania, is a 21 Year Old boy who programs his own games and has them uploaded online to his GitHub and his Itch Page where users can then download them and use them for themselves. Mr. Merali even has a counterpart job as a computer security researcher at Dark Horse Security Inc. Which is responsible for different computer security work such as Fraud Investigation, Digital Forensics and the similar.

You can see from here on Mr. Merali's GitHub that he certificates in different fields of Information Technology as seen here:

While most of the security work Mr. Merali does is Public on his Facebook and our companies Twitter, You can always check him there. Mr. Merali is even covered in over four News Articles and is a well-known security researcher in the field of computers for his work which is very rare to find in Africa especially in Tanzania. There is little to no news at all about such researchers online or even in news articles about people like him who have the capability to do what he can do. Nonetheless, this is why this article had to be made to make him known for his works.

This therefore proves the capabilities that Mr. Merali has aren't comparative to what many people can do, while this itself requires programming knowledge to do such tasks including C++, PHP, Java and Python. Inclusive to this, his games are outrages and amazing as well. The Programming languages which he used to program all his games are mostly JavaScript and HTML since these games are then compiled through the Cordova Framework.
