About


I am based out of Mumbai, India and have been doing programming since the last 18 years. I started out doing odd jobs under the banner of a self-formed company called Mirage Software. In those days, I had developed full featured applications for the Home Loans department of Citibank, Advertising & Sales Promotion Department for Marico Industries and assisted Glaxo Pharmaceuticals in computerizing their Auditing procedures.

I have been associated with Microsoft’s .NET Framework since its Beta stage and have gone thru the complete lifecycle of most .Net based products like SharePoint and BizTalk from their very first versions.

In Oct. 2002, I became a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) for the first time. Since then, my MVP status has been renewed 7 times. I was one of the founding members and convener of the Mumbai .NET user group which with over 12,000 members is one of India’s largest user-group for the .Net Platform. One of the first and early BizTalk Certified Professionals in the world, I was also instrumental in setting up India’s first BizTalk User Group.

Since October 2003, I have been a speaker delivering MSDN and Technet seminars across India. I am also a regular speaker at premier technical events like TechEd, DevDays and DevCon since the last 8 years. I have played the role of a SME (Subject Matter Expert) for technologies like Web Services, SQL Server, Business Intelligence, ASP.Net, ADO.Net, LINQ, SharePoint and Workflow Foundation.
