this week I had the great pleasure to speak about Ajax and WPF/E in Dubai in front of students from various universities around UAE. Honestly I was very nervous presenting in a country with a culture that I did not know. Actually it turned out that the students were less shy than myself and I had great conversations with many of them as well as I had chats with some of threir professors. Yesterday I had the chance to speak to prefessional developers which was another great experience. As mentioned in my presenation (attached) here are some addintional useful links to technology I was referring.

For the attendees: can be found on You can find the Ajax Control Toolkit on was also refering to the blog of Nikhil Kothari at and WPF/E can be found at
