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.
It’s been a busy yet productive part of my life in the past few months since I moved to Dallas. I was settling in the new city and new job and expanding my social network. I couldn’t do much in the area of community activities like blogging or speaking, but I’m slowly coming back.
Those loyal readers of my blog who can stand my posts and keep reading them would remember that in September 2011 I had a talk at North Dallas .NET Users Group on parallel programming in .NET that was eventually sponsored by Match.Com while I had no idea I will start a new job there exactly one year later.
North Dallas .NET Users Group is organized and managed by a group of smart and great people among whom I had some friends even before joining Match and some of them are now my colleagues there. As could be expected from my move to Dallas, I’m going to speak there again on February 6, 2013, and I’ve chosen yet another interesting topic about a new .NET technology which is ASP.NET SignalR.
As you would know, SignalR was started as an open source community project to enable real time communication between clients and servers for ASP.NET applications, but it was added as an official part of ASP.NET technology stack with ASP.NET Fall 2012 Update in BUILD conference. I’ve been working with SignalR in the past couple of months, and found it a great addition to the .NET family.
The title of my talk is Introduction to ASP.NET SignalR, and it will be at Improving Enterprises in Addison, Texas at 6:00 PM and I’ll introduce ASP.NET SignalR to audience, and will try my best to provide enough information to get people started with this new technology.
I have to thank our Human Resources for sponsoring this talk, and encourage you, dear .NET developers, to apply for a position to join our awesome teams.
