Code Your Art Out-er Kowsheek Mahmood!

By: brendanjohnston, April 28, 2011

Q: Please tell us a little about yourself.

A: I’m doing my undergraduate at Ryerson. On the side I work with a startup called Fersh where we develop various kinds of applications.

Q: Why did you decide to participate in this coding competition in particular?

A: The competition is a great way to showcase the work I do at Fersh.  Make Web Not War is amazing, so it feels good to be involved. Also, the competition gives me an added incentive to write code!

Q: What do you hope to gain from your participation?

A: I am sure the experience will be great. Also I am hopeful that the application will get  some great feedback and exposure, something I can build on.

Q: What prompted you to pick this specific project?  (From the TechSoup Canada list)

A: The project for The Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada is fairly straightforward and also flexible about how I implement the application.  I imagine that it could be helpful to many people as well, that’s added incentive.

 Q: What kinds of technologies will you be using?  Are you using Azure or IIS?

 A: Going with IIS for this one. I’ll be using the amazing web technologies in the .Net stack alongside several of the open source tools out there. Also, I’ll be using my current favorite, Nuget.

Q: If you win, how will you spend the cash money?

A: I’d rather not plan about what I don’t have, yet. But I am sure when I do have it, I’ll go crazy!

Q: Anything else you want to say?

A: Good luck to all the participants and thanks to the organizers for all their hard work.
