Abdylas (also known as Ades) was born in 1978 in Kyrgyz Republic, popularly
known as Kyrgyzstan internationally. It's a tiny republic in Central Asia with a
population of approximately 5 million people. It's one of the former 15 countries
that gained independence after the collapse of USSR in 1991.
This important incident brought along a lot of opportunities to Kyrgyz people
from the outside world. Suddenly lots of countries were opening businesses,
schools, and universities in Kyrgyzstan. One of these schools was his high
school, which was opened by Turkish educational organization called SEBAT,
in conjunction with Kyrgyz Government.
After graduating from Kyrgyz-Turkish High School in 1996, Abdylas applied to
International Islamic University, in Malaysia (IIUM). He was accepted to the
Department of Information & Communications Technology (ICT). He then
graduated from IIUM in 2002, and went straight into the IT Industry. Initially,
he worked as a Web-Designer, with his last position being a Creative Lead.
But after working for about 3 years, he decided to concentrate on his own
projects and pursue his education. By this time he was running a few
online projects generating some income, so much that in November 2005, he
was officially self-employed.
Today Abdylas is doing his MBA at Management Centre of IIUM, majoring in
Strategic Management. He is also actively involved in several personal
projects, including his blog and a few other websites which generate over
2 million unique visitors a year combined. « Back to full list of bloggers
