It's time for another Interview with a Wiki Ninja!

This interview is with…

Isenthil

Isenthil was one of our earliest contributors to the Windows Phone Development category of TechNet Guru. To date, he has 2 gold medals and 5 total medals! This is especially impressive since he's only written 5 Wiki articles!

Let's learn more about this Windows Phone Development gold medal Guru and Client Development MVP! 

  

Who are you, where are you, and what do you do? What are your specialty technologies?

I am Senthil Kumar (Twitter), a software engineer and a Microsoft MVP – Client Development from Bangalore, India. I am a post graduate in computer applications (MCA) from Christ College, Bangalore. I am in the IT industry for about 5 years now and have had the opportunity to work on variety of technologies like C#, Entity Framework, Winforms, ASP.NET MVC, Windows Mobile, Windows Phone, Delphi, PHP, Infor ERP, SQL Server, CMS like WordPress, Drupal, etc.

 

What are your big projects right now?

Currently, I haven’t thought of earning any certifications, but I'm planning to prepare for it in the next few months. I have been covering a series of blog posts on "Windows Phone and Oxygene development" and "Visual Studio 2013 tips and tricks" in my blog "MobileOSGeek".

You can also see me active in the user group meetings where I would be volunteering or speaking in various user group meetings (Bangalore .NET User Group), webinars, and events like the Cloud OS MVP Roadshow, VTC 2014, etc.

 

What is TechNet Wiki for? Who is it for?

TechNet Wiki is one of the great resources for technology enthusiasts like students, developers, testers, designers, professionals, etc.

 

What is it about TechNet Wiki that interests you?

TechNet wiki has good number of resources that helps and guides the professionals about a specific topic.

I liked the TechNet guru of the month competition, an interesting program that lets the users share great content and also get recognition in terms of the awards.

 

What are your favorite Wiki articles you’ve contributed?

Some of my favorite articles which I have contributed include

 

What are your favorite Wiki articles?

That’s a very difficult question to answer. There are so much good and quality articles in Wiki. Each article is edited by the community members or users, and this improves the quality of the article as well.

If I was given an opportunity to pick my favorite articles. I would pick all the articles from the Windows Phone categories in the TechNet Wiki Tech guru of the month page. :)

 

Who has impressed you in the Wiki community, and why?

Definitely, it’s Ed Price :). I see Ed price and Naomi who are so active in the Wiki pages, improving the quality and accuracy of articles.

It's great to finally learn more about you, Senthil!

Please join me in thanking Senthil for all his contributions to the community, and feel free to ask him more questions!
