He bought his first personal computer — an IBM PC-AT — in 1984 after graduating with a PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Maryland at College Park. While pursuing a full-time career in engineering, Naba dreamed of writing software for the emerging PC software market.

Currently, Naba is a Senior Level Technologist at the Center for Technology and Engineering in the U.S. General Accounting Office.
Over the past 15 years, Naba has written over 25 computer books on a number of topics ranging from Windows programming with C++ to Linux. He has authored several bestselling titles, such as The Waite Group’s Turbo C++ Bible, Object-Oriented Programming in C++, X Window System Programming, Visual C++ Developer’s Guide, Borland C++ 4 Developer’s Guide, and Linux Secrets. His books have been translated into many languages, including Spanish, French, Polish, Greek, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Naba’s most recent book is Red Hat Linux 9 Professional Secrets, also published by Wiley.
