I live in Shiraz,Iran-the kingdom of Cyrus, The Great. I'm a university student and I'm studying software engineering at the moment. I began programming when I was around fifteen. having started my journey with VB6, I moved to VB.NET after two years and one year later I turned my face to C# as I found it more interesting and challenging. These days, I'm learning WPF and Silverlight. I also like MVC.
