Do you want to write for Packt?

Damir Arh is a software architect and developer, who is interested in using new technologies and methodologies to make development processes more efficient and improve the user experience in software.

He is a big proponent of TDD (test-driven development) and unit testing in general. He regularly uses NUnit and MsTest unit testing frameworks and is very fond of the NCrunch continuous testing tool. It really changes the way you look at unit tests.

He has a lot of experience with setting up continuous integration servers (CruiseControl.NET and TeamCity), and has used and administered different source control tools (SVN, GIT, TFS, and VSS).

He has been working with Microsoft development tools all of his professional career. He has lots of experience with most parts of the .NET framework: client-side (WPF, Windows Forms), server-side (WCF, WF, and ASP.NET), and data access (ADO.NET, Entity Framework).

Lately, he has been very interested in mobile platforms, such as WinRT and Windows Phone. He has been a fan of Portable Class Libraries since they were first released.

In the past, he spent a lot of time in the field of COM-.NET interoperability, as well as with Word and Excel automation.

He is also experienced with all aspects of SQL Server (Database Services, Analysis Services, DTS, and Integrations Services).

He loves to share his knowledge with other developers. He is a speaker at local events (Microsoft NT conference, Bleeding Edge, and local user group meetings). He regularly posts on his blog and is an active user on Stack Overflow.
