I’m very excited that I have been invited to speak at Microsoft TechDays 2012 in Gaza.
It’s the first official Microsoft event ever in Gaza, I’ll deliver a couple of sessions at two universities.
The first topic is my favorite cloud computing session “Understanding Cloud Platforms: A Rational Comparison” , and the second topic is “Composite Development: A New Paradigm in Software Development Productivity” which is about composing software’s using the modern tools in SharePoint Development Platform, Visual Studio 2010, and Visual Studio Light-Switch.
This Two-Days event will be launched on the 14th of March at Islamic University of Gaza (IUG), and the next day will be at Al-Azhar University, 4 More speakers will be there:
– Naseem Tuffaha: General Manager for Microsoft MEA Business Marketing Organization.
– Ayman Al-Dahleh: Senior Development Manager at Office Team.
– Husni Khuffash: Microsoft Jordan Country Manager
– Ali Nimer: Windows Phone and SharePoint Products Unit Lead at MASADER Technologies – Jordan.
I’ve never been to Gaza before and I can’t wait to meet everyone there!
This is a volunteery efforts to create a Web-Based Data Visualization for all the Palestinian martyrs during the last 62 Years, as a beginning we are extracting the information about the 352 Killed Children during the last Attack on GAZA by the Israeli occupation forces depending on the “Defense for Children International Web Site” reports, in addition to the photos if it’s available, and then uploading it to CreatePivot site.
Initially we have uploaded data about 120 innocent children killed in their homes between 27 December 2008 and 18 January 2009.
First of all you have to install the Silverlight Technology Plugin from here if you don’t have it, then you can view the Visualized Information here.
We will continue updating the database in the upcoming weeks as much as possible.
Thanks Mo’ath Al-Araj for the help.
