Services


Web and App Development

Are you a small business owner or non-profit manager interested in reaching new clients, members, donors, or volunteers? Let's help you with your website or mobile app. Focus on what you do best: serving your customers. Leverage the power of technology to automate manual processes or reach a new audience.


Mentoring

I have mentored over 50 students over the past 5 years to start a career in IT/Software Development. My clients fall into two broad categories: Recent high school graduates/college students who would like to start a career in IT. The second category are typically people with college degrees who have established careers in a non-IT field. They are career-changers that would like to get into the IT/Software Development industry. Regardless of which category you belong to, I can help you develop a game plan and a learning path to achieve your career goals.


Consulting

Do you have a business idea that you believe can be accelerated by a technology solution? If so, I can help you avoid costly pitfalls early in the project. If you are a recruiter looking to staff a project for one of your client companies, I have helped implementing major enterprise projects.

Testimonials

I was working in the Banking Industry for couple years, and I was looking to challenge myself and advance my career. Fortunately, I met Mr.Bashir Shafii, CTO of Black Swan Solution, Inc., and took a course from him in IT Business Analysis. Bashir helped me understand what it takes to become a Business Analyst and provided strategies in finding a Business Analyst job. I am thankful for the opportunity and currently working as a Business Analyst in a major Insurance company.

I took the Microsoft Technology Associate - Network Fundamentals course at Black Swan Solutions in October 2017. My instructor, Bashir Shafii, had real world experience and didn't just teach theory. I was able to pass the certification exam on my first attempt and with a very high score ,in large part, due to the course I took at this school. With the certification in hand, I was able to get a job as a Help Desk Technician. I highly recommend this instructor and school.

I took the Microsoft Technology Associate - Network Fundamentals course at Black Swan Solutions in September 2017. The school is located in ideal location in Bloomington with plenty of parking and easy access by bus. They have a well-equipped computer lab. The instructors were very knowledgeable and took the time to break down complex concepts for students. Both my instructors - Taylor Kerber and Bashir Shafii - are IT professionals with tons of industry experience. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to get started in the IT industry!
