I am Asad Siddiqi , a software engineer by profession and working as a Professional Services Consultant at NCR Corporation. I did my bachelors in Computer Science from FAST-NU (Karachi ) in 2005 and started working at InfiniLogic when i was a Senior at School. There I had a lot of experience with .Net Technologies (Basically ASP.Net and related technologies). After that I moved to another Company which dealt with Software for self servicing terminals called Transaction Processing Systems (TPS ) in Karachi , Pakistan , there I did some development for NCR EP42 Kiosk Terminals and made application software ( A State Engine) which communicated with a centralized server based (A TCP Connection) on Proprietary protocol later converted to ISO 8583 . Went through the whole SDLC and it was a great experience !! I was exposed to many better technologies like XAML , SFTP Libraries , Remote Application Management Tools , Process Management Applications and building application Architectures for financial companies.
Then I moved to United States with a software setup in Maryland Peake Software Labs.There I did Core software development with VC++ , COM + ,VB.Net and ASP.Net . The project had a web enabled interface and basically was used as a schedular for Emergerncy departments at hospitals.It had modules for compensation management , user management and could be used from anywhere with a broswer and internet. From development’s perspective that was a great experience since i didnt have professional experience with VC++ and it really helped me learn the conventions essential for writing good code !!
Currently its a domain of my interest , Retails Group at NCR and i m simply enjoying it a lot !! Windows , Web Application development with Microsoft Technologies and Building application development libraries and frameworks .
Other than work , I am doing MS – Software Engineering from Johns Hopkins University .I like guitar playing , have a kind of interest in Cars , Browse for new technologies and Chat 🙂

Its Mid 2012 and I am in Atlanta with another job. Its been almost 3 years here and I really like the weather, my teammates and the day to day activities. I got a cool idea that is keeping me occupied. I will update the blog with the free for all implementation of my new ground breaking app (:P) which will change the world (or I hope it will).
