Can you kindly explain why they feel that way?
A short snippet which describes the mood of FASTIANs about Devsinc.

Making a two hour video on Youtube, anybody can do that these days it seems, and not say much. :D
True, I would have liked Asif to talk a lot more about his business. Devsinc generates north of 50$ million a year so I really wanted to hear more about the company.

These types of videos are more along the lines of "look at me and what I did" to make them feel good, without telling anything useful about the actual "how", or what connections exist behind the story to make the "success" possible in the first place.

“Haram stuff” 🙄
I don't know exactly about that, one thing I can say is that Devsinc's reputation isn't good especially in our FAST University ( which is the premier IT Uni in Pak ). Many students who have did summer internships there were actively discouraging people from applying there again.

Muzamil should have kept the podcast under his control like he usually does. This podcast is a joke compared to the one that he did with the founder of Netsol, Salim Ghauri, which was one of his best podcasts ever. Unlike Asif, not only did Salim explain his entire journey but he also explained in great detail the challenges that he faced with leading Netsol and how he overcame them. You will enjoy that podcast even if you aren't a CS guy.

Are you a university student? I’m overly impressed with the Non-LUMs universities in Pakistan. I’ve hired many folks for feeelance work and the professionalism displayed by them, not to mention knowledge was amazing. I encourage every Gora I meet to hire folks in Pakistan. They’re qualified and inexpensive compared to Indians.
