I have a Master’s degree in computer science and a bachelor's degree in applied mathematics. I’m also known to be a technical author with several technical publications in the form of books and articles. Besides, I'm an open source enthusiast and have coordinated or contributed to several projects. Currently, I maintain my projects on GitHub.
As a content provider on the internet, not only I publish on this technical blog, but also I'm a podcaster and publish audio podcasts on Mash This.
Trying to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, I'm a pescetarianist and exercise almost everyday. I’m an avid runner, soccer defender, and tennis player. I also have an interest in fashion.
The 16th episode of Mash This podcast is out and it's featuring Javaun Moradi from National Public Radio to talk about NPR's API.
Javaun holds the position that was previously held by our guest in episode 14 (Daniel Jacobsen). NPR provides a big set of API's for its content and deals with many stations, channels, etc. The volume of traffic and the size of data on NPR make it a big challenge to build a good API for the public. NPR's API is used to create a wide range of mobile applications, widgets, and tools.
In this episode, Lee, Nick, and I talk to Javaun about their API's and discuss some other relevant topics including the state of software design for the cars. This is a very interesting discussion as it covers a wide and nice set of topics.
Episode 16 is also my last episode as one of the main hosts. I appeared on 15 out of 16 episodes so far and has been with the podcast since its early days to now (almost 9 months). Luckily, we had a great set of episodes with prominent guests, and provided a valuable content for our audience. However, I think I have to step down from this regular commitment to focus on other stuff mainly my personal life. I'm happy that we've been able to put the podcast on track, and am sure that other hosts can continue the work after me. I may reappear on the podcast on occasion as a guest or co-host.
