About the Presenter:
Omar is the Chief Architect of Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) Platform in BT, living in London, UK. As the name suggests, I get to do the cool stuffs at BT.
He was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Did his B.Sc. in Computer Science. When he was 9, Omar won the Best Competitor Award in the first Nationwide Computer Programming Contest. Media made his life complicated for a year. Omar’s first startup, when he was 15, was quite successful, where he built 4 multimedia titles and sold in a CD. There was a fun app for pre-school kids to learn alphabets, rhymes, puzzles; one app for teenagers to learn Chemistry with animations, 3D illustrations and a sci-fi style user interface and one app for learning Astronomy with hundreds of videos and clips from Nasa, and one for Tourism in Bangladesh with interactive maps, nearly 400 popular attractions’ photo and description. Omar had built an HTML rendering engine that could render styled text, inline image and video, using Visual Basic 5. If you know VB 5, you would recognize that as a noble-prize candidate effort.
