.NET Developers to Know

.NET is celebrating its birthday this month. As part of this special celebration, we wanted to showcase two .NET developers we think we all should get to know. See what they have been working on and all they have accomplished:

Ahmed Bahaa Farid

ncover_mvp_ahmed_bahaa_farid“Working for Community inspires me, and pushes me always to achieve more because; I believe that the value of any man doesn’t come from how much he can get for himself but, it comes from how much he can give to others, and how much he can positively affects people’s lives.” Dr. Ahmed Bahaa became active in the technical community by giving talks at the Middle East Visual Studio .NET 2002 Launch (Version 1.0) in March 2002 in Cairo-Egypt. He presented the ADO.NET session, and has since made it his goal to remain active in the community.

Professionally, Dr. Bahaa works as the Principal Technical Consultant in an ALM Microsoft Gold Partner in Cairo-Egypt, CompuPharaohs, building enterprise solutions. You can also find him in the classroom as an Associate Professor of Computer and Information at Helwan University in Cairo, Egypt. He appreciates the sustainability of sharing his knowledge with talented university students.

In addition to consulting and teaching, Dr. Bahaa serves in a variety of advisory roles.

Nino Crudele

ncover_mvp_nino_crudeleNino Crudele first came in contact with BizTalk Server in 2004, and from the first moment, he was hooked. He has worked exclusively on BizTalk Server for many years, giving him the chance to use every function and explore every aspect of the platform. He has learned a lot about integration, leading him in recent years to focus on the future and on hybrid architectures, such as Azure Service Bus, BizTalk Services, and BizTalk On-Premise.

In addition to his extensive work with BizTalk Server, Nino has delivered world class Integration solutions using many different technologies such as AS2, EDI, Rosettanet, HL7, RFID, SWIFT. When he’s not developing, you can find Nino blogging, speaking, writing, and collaborating with the community.
