INTERESTS AND
HOBBIES

Reading When in leisure, I prefer reading leading software experts. Some of my favourite
reads include blogs by Phil Hack, Scott Guthrie, Scot Hanselman, Joel Spolsky,
Jon Skeet and Eric Lipert.

Writing and contribution I also maintain and write at http://codingphobia.com/ and love to contribute if
possible at stackoverflow.com. http://stackoverflow.com/users/175216/asad-butt

Others The down side in my personality is probably not having a very good sense of
humour but I do socialise and integrate well. This means that you will find me
listening and observing more than speaking. I also like to travel and love to stay
behind the wheel when possible over long routes.
MOTIVATION AND At CIIT I had the opportunity to work over .Net framework, which I was always interested
FUTURE in. My work mostly involved the development of business logic for Tier 2 modules for the
INTERESTS applications and this probably is what I enjoy the most as it is more about programming
using C#. I also had the responsibility for developing the front end for the applications
using Web Forms and some backend modules for the Data Access layers. My last project
has given me exposure to Asp.Net MVC and this is the matter of interest for me now
onwards along With LINQ.

At Biomedcentral, I was responsible for the redesign and migration of RSS application
along with 80 percent of test coverage. JDK 5.0 was the base technology for
development.

Sole purpose of taking post graduate course work in software systems and internet
technologies is my craze to undertake designing and implementation of web based
application. Not only sticking to just Databases or website design or simple application
development, I am ready to take any challenge and task. I believe WWW and related
technologies are ever changing, diverse and dramatically expanding and there is lot of
scope and areas to be explored and there is always going to be room for good learners.
