Software Engineer at Microsoft
Introduction
My views expressed here are my own and do not necessarily represent the views of my current or former employers.
 

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 on GitHub and contributed to many projects around the internet. That allows me to spread the knowledge I gained at Microsoft to all over the world, and vice versa :)
I will be posting stuff about programming, work at Microsoft, and stuff I find interesting.

Google Chrome has some code written by me!

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.

Let me know what you think :) As usual, the code is open sourced on GitHub https://github.com/mohamedmansour/bing-translate/ It works on all browsers IE, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. If you look deep in the code I used one of my earlier hack techniques to remove my companies branding using mutations :)
iOS 8 introduced a great new development API called Action Extensions. Action Extensions are basically a safe way to extend certain apps in iOS 8 using JavaScript and Swift (Obj-C). One month prior to WWDC, I was one of the lucky developers... | Mohamed Mansour | Software Artist who happens to be a Ninja

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+ at this years Google I/O :(

So +WIRED published an article about a math wizard who hacked +OkCupid to find True Love, so Ryan and I sought out to improve his collection technique and crowdsource it.  

You can read more about it here at the link below.
