New job and MVP for 8th consecutive time

Posted: Sunday, January 1, 2012 in, MVP, Personal

First if all happy new year to all.. 2011 was an eventful  year. Got married and moved to Dubai .last December I moved to a new job. after working as a lead.Net developer for veripark for almost 1year then I joined with dominateRFID as a Software Development Manager. Looking forward to the challenge and fun with this new opportunity.

Just few minutes ago I received the mail from Microsoft, stating that I have been awarded as Microsoft MVP for ASP.NET/IIS. Well since I moved to UAE, there wasn’t any major activities I could do offline as I was doing with Sri lanka .NET User Group, but I started on developing a community portal with Microsoft gulf. Still this is under development. Any way looking forward for more active and exciting year.

Tech-Ed Middle East 2011

Posted: Saturday, March 12, 2011 in Microsoft, MVP, Personal

Tech Ed Middle East 2011 ended up in a grand way… this was my first tech ed outside sri lanka…
overall it was well organized.. from the sessions i participated, apart from 1 session and 1 lab session all the other sessions were good. and the session “Web Deployment That Can Impress your Boss” by Vishal Joshi was the best one for me… Lisa Feigenbaum also did a good job with her VS and c# talks.

in the community zone had opportunity to meet people who were keen to help on community work and who already started with some user groups here in dubai .planning to keep in touch with the them..
also it was nice to meet Natasha and Ramon from Dubai Microsoft who are looking the community work over here.

missed the opportunity to meet our MVP lead Ruari Plint since he couldn’t participate to tech ed last minute. hope to see him in a future event.

soon the voice recordings of all the sessions will be available on ..
