My name is Ali Tarhini and i am a Dev. Lead at a local software company in Lebanon. I am currently working in the domain of HealthCare solutions and building software systems for hospitals and other government institutions in the MENA region. Before healthcare, I used to work on Travel Management Systems and even before that I was a developer for Content Management Systems for building dynamic web content.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering & Informatics from Beirut Arab University and have a Master’s degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering from the American University of Beirut. My undergraduate thesis was about pattern recognition, specifically about face detection and recognition where I developed, along with my collegeaus, a software package that is capable of finding and detecting human faces in still images and apply two recognition algorithms in order to identify the names behind the faces. My masters thesis was on Automatic Loop Parallelization where I invented a new approach for automatically finding an optimal schedule for running multiple iterations of loops in parallel in order to optimize execution speed and reduce memory overhead.
I am a software geek, so my posts will mainly focus on programming, particularly on the .Net Framework and the web, SQL, and a strong focus on algorithms.
