I am Lebanese Canadian, born and raised in Canada, and currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area working at Microsoft.  At Microsoft, I am a Software Engineer at Bing. During the day I write a lot of JavaScript and develop new Social User Experiences at Bing Social. As well, I am deeply involved in the Innovation team where we are a bunch of hackers creating cool social experiences in Microsoft using our Bing Platform. Finally, I contribute to many internal special project tools to help innovate very rapidly.
 At home, when I code, I attend many local hackathons, I write free software, contribute to many open source software projects, such as Google Chrome (2008-2011), hundreds of browser extensions (Firefox / Chrome / Safari), maintained dozens of projects

About 4 weeks ago Google I/O 2014 has ended!

It was a great two days of learning and fun! Met nice people +Melissa Daniels +Ade Oshineye +Michael Mahemoff +François Beaufort +Josh Armour +Derek Ross and many more!

- Chromebook is finally getting useful, Android apps finally integrated.
- New Android NDK tools from partners, loving the NVIDIA GPU debugging toolset!
- Android Material flat design is beautiful
- Android Wear, Auto, TV and Xbox Controller look like a nice family of products under one operating system. Great for developers.
- Oculus Rift cloned for under a dollar :-) - Lots of company swag, you can never run out of shirts (need more drawers) The best one this year was duolingo stuffed animal :)

Google should really not allow Runtastic to do that squatting competition, that area was full of sweat (people were dripping sweat)! People were squatting for like 10+ hours ... Just to win a Google Glass :) Would you do it :p

Unfortunately, there was no Google+

About 2 days ago "In order for side projects to truly succeed, they have to be stupid"

This is what Spotify's design lead said in this great article.
1) Let yourself be stupid
2) Take it one step at a time
3) Ditch your obsession with growth
4) Trust yourself more

And it ended well "I didn't build it because it stopped being fun. It stopped being stupid"

About 6 weeks ago How to communicate between Sandboxes in JavaScript Extensions
#javascript   #extensions   #ios8   #wwdc14

A month before WWDC, I was invited by Apple (representing Microsoft)  to help them create a Bing Translate extension on iOS 8 Action Extensions. I just published an article that explains a technique I used to communicate between different JavaScript sandboxes when dealing with Extensions in iOS 8. The same thing applies in Chrome Extensions

I have used this technique it for many of my hacks when developing Chrome Extensions, and I used it again to develop the iOS 8 Action Extension. I hope this may be of any good use for any other developer if you require to communicate back and fourth with the JavaScript on the Browser Context side.
