About Timothy Khouri

If you haven’t already figured it out, my name is Timothy Khouri. I’ve been “playing with computers” since I was in 12, learning how to create programs on my own by pressing buttons. I can recall several conversations with my mom where I was excitedly explaining for hours what I figured out and what I was building… later I found out, she didn’t understand a word I was saying – but she supported my habit nonetheless!

Professional Career Path

Lamp (HTML, JavaScript PHP and MySql mostly) -> ASP.NET (1.0/.1) and SQL Server 2000 -> WinForms (C#2, .NET 2.0), ASP.NET (2.0, 3.5), SQL Server 2000/05/08 (DTS, SSIS now added to my tool-belt) -> ASP.NET (4.0, MVC 3), C#3, .NET 3.0/.5/4.0 WPF, WCF -> Windows Azure

Those are the major categories of what I was using at each job change (where the technology was different enough to mention).

Systems Architecture & Design

I have designed many systems over the years – almost all of which are still in production and used by hundreds of clients, multiple fortune 500, some fortune 100. In the past I’ve leaned heavily on the “roll-your-own” model, but in more recent years I see the great beauty in utilizing systems and services from others – hence my current love for the Windows Azure platform.
