At first glance, Shajid Hasan is an ordinary 20-year-old young man living in Bangladesh.

He recently started college and is adjusting to life as a freshman. He is studying to become a mechanical engineer at the University of Engineering and Technology in Chittagong. However, he also has a genuine love for computer programming.

His love for computer programming led him to develop the Batname Generator website which recently went viral worldwide. The Batname Generator can turn any word into a Batman themed typography.

“As a DC fan, I am a member of many DC fan groups on Facebook. One day I saw someone posting a logo of his name, which looked exactly like the Batman logo. A lot of people wanted do the same. So, I just thought I’d write some codes and help all these fans get what they want,” Shajid told The Business Standard.

Shajid sat down at his computer and developed a website where anyone could have their logo created in an instant.

“Truth be told, it wasn’t a lot of work. The whole project took about 2 hours,” he added.

Shajid was in shock when he found out his website had gone viral. Popular entertainment websites such as Collider, CBR, and ScreenRant had featured its Batname Generator because netizens loved it so much.

“I had no idea my website had gone viral. After Google searching for ‘The Batman’, a ScreenRant article featuring my website came up as the top search result. My website also went viral on Twitter, he got thousands of likes, retweets and comments.”

Shajid never expected a two-hour long effort to garner such popularity. All the love and praise he has received so far has been overwhelming. But he feels good that Batman fans everywhere are enjoying his creation.

“Honestly speaking, there are times when I think all this attention is not deserved, since the whole project only took about two hours. But people are having a lot of fun with it! It makes me so happy “, he shared.
