Vacation in Cairo, Egypt.

Following my yearly tradition, I am spending the holidays in Cairo, Egypt with the family. It is really sunny here. It is great to have a break from the rain in SeattleJ. I will be staying in Cairo till the mid of January.  


A couple of days ago I paid a visit to Microsoft Egypt. I met with the Developer Evangelist folks. We discussed the Visual C++ team’s participation in the upcoming MDC (Middle-East Developers Conference) in Cairo (nothing is confirmed yet regarding the participation). Last year the VC++ Team delivered 3 talks. The conference is a really great one with lots of attendees and interactions.


Currently I am catching up with lots of college friends mainly from the AUC soccer team. It is amazing to see how everyone grew in his/her own way. Lots of surprises, good ones thoughJ.

    Tamim, I know ahmed very well. I will pass him you contact details.

    Bahaa, unfortunately I won’t be able to make it to MDC07 but I already spoke to the organizers and the VC++ team will still have some sessions there. 2 folks from our team in Redmond will deliver those talks in Feb.

    Hi Ayman

    Its my wish to visit Ciro one day. However, I am trying to have my yearly vacation country by country. The year before I was in Jordan and the last year I spet it with my family in Syria and it was really a wonderful time. I am planing this year to visit Lebanon and inshaaAllah the year after to Ciro.

    Dear Aymen, could you please email me on for an urgen and private matter.
