About Me

I live in a small town near Chicago. I stepped into the field of IT in year 1998 and started my professional life with COBOL programming. My peregrination of software engineering continued and I learned several programming languages starting from COBOL, FoxPro, Visual FoxPro 6.0, Visual Basic 6.0… ending at JAVA and ASP.NET & C#. During all of this learning and practicing software engineering, I became Sun Certified Java Programmer, as well as, Microsoft Certified Professional in .NET. Recent past years in my career have been very important for myself as I started working as an IT Consultant. As a consultant, I enjoyed my work leading and mentoring a team of developers based in India. After working as a team lead at an IT Consultancy company for 2 years, I decided to shift gears a bit and started a full time job at an awesome company in the field of health care. Just to make life more hectic, I also decided to pursue my life-long dream of doing MBA, and thus I enrolled as a part-time student in my state university.

After I successfully developed, implemented and deployed numerous projects/products in .NET, my ex-boss and project manager (and now a very good friend of mine) motivated me to write programmer-to-programmer articles and weblogs based upon those projects. All those products helped my organization in gaining customer satisfaction and great profit. I plan to use wordpress for my weblogs. So far you might see only a few weblogs, nonetheless, I plan to upload some more and very interesting articles in near future.

Note: It seems wordpress’s text editor is not meant for technical weblogs; that’s why you might face a little difficulty in understanding blurry screenshots or wrapped lines of C# code. Moreoever, with each article I wanted to upload complete source code in a zipped file but couldn’t find any option to do so. While I’m working to fix such issues, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding my articles. In addition to posting comments under blogs, you can also feel free to send me e-mail at mukarram(at)hotmail(dot)com; though I encourage blog comments more.

  9. Great blog you have created here man.

    I was looking for your email address or some contact, but I didn’t have a chance.
    I am looking for a good step by step implementation of RSA, which you have implemented in Java here:
    But since I am not very familiar with Java, I have difficulties to take out the plain pseudocode of the code you have written. I will need the pseudocode so I can implement it in pure php by my own (I don’t want to use libraries, or at least want to understand completely what’s happening first).

    Please let me know if you have a good recourse, or know one.
