Stories continue with the BizTalk Community Series that bring BizTalk community members to the foreground. The ninth story will be on Nausad Alam, who is currently one of most active community members on BizTalk forums. Not only on the forums has Naushad been very active. He has also written a few extensive wiki articles for Technet wiki like:
A few weeks a go I had a chat with Naushad and here’s his story.
Naushad is BizTalk Developer/Administrator/Designer/Architect, working with one of the largest Bank in the United Kingdom. He has more than 9 years of working experience with Microsoft products.
Naushad enjoys the BizTalk Administrator and Developer role the most. He started working with BizTalk early 2004 during a BizTalk 2002 project, and after that it seems he got married with this product. Nowadays he is working/thinking/sharing his knowledge on the BizTalk forums.
Naushad has certainly showed his enthusiasm on the forums, TechNet wiki and blog. I quote:
“There are really great articles/forums (MSDN)/blogs evolved during last 3-4 years, I remember when I started working with BizTalk 2002, there was not much information on the internet, So I really had some difficulties find information, but things have been revolutionized in recent years. People should get benefit from this and make the BizTalk product the most popular and successful ever.”
His view on sharing knowledge is and I quote:
“I would like to say that it really takes time and passion to write and maintain technical blogs online with a consistency, People should try to get maximum benefits from the blogs/articles because it could give them a simple solution of their complex problems.”
He feels BizTalk is a great product and as he states:
“Certainly BizTalk is a great product and its been evolved a lot during last couple of years, the guys at Redmond are really shipping great features every time making it a better product. I would love to continue the rest my career around this product and other integration products of Microsoft.”
In his spare time Naushad likes to watch animations like Cars, and Toy story with his little daughter, and he is an active reader. He recently finished reading the biography of “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson, which aligns with his passion for Apple products. Naushad likes his Mac and loves to design simple user interfaces for it. Currently he is working on a design for a user interface for one of his personal media management software.
Regarding sports Naushad loves to watch cricket; the Indian Cricket team is his favorite team and Sachin Tendulkar his favorite player. Since the last couple of months he has been enjoying playing badminton on the weekends.
Thanks Naushad for your time and your contributions to forums and the TechNet Wiki.
