About Mahesh Krishnan

My name is Mahesh Krishnan. I grew up in the South Indian city of Chennai, but I now call Melbourne, Australia home. Before moving to Melbourne, I used to live in sunny California.

I run the Victoria .NET Dev SIG in Melbourne, where we meet every second Tuesday of the month at around 5:30pm, have pizza and a presentation. I also run the Azure Meetup in Melbourne, where we meet to discuss Azure related topics.

We are always looking for presenters at these events and if you are interested, leave a message here…

In addition, I also run Developer Developer Developer (DDD) Melbourne. It’s a great conference, but you don’t have to take my word for it :), just check out the list of topics and presenters we had last year

When I managed to find some time, I’ve written a couple of books – Silverlight for Dummies and Introducing .NET 4.5. Check them out on Amazon 🙂 – http://www.amazon.com/Mahesh-Krishnan/e/B004WKC7LE

I also blog about Cricket at http://i3j3cricket.com and you can find out more about me at my website http://mahe.sh

  1. Hi Mahesh,

    Just stumbled upon your blog – thanks to your nick name (Blogesh, intelligently funny 🙂 ).

    Well, my story is same yet exactly opposite – Born in India, but then used to live in Sydney, and now am in San Francisco. So, how long have you been living in Melbourne? I visited there almost same time last year. Where you used to live in CA?

    Too many questions at a time, but it’s always great to see a person with whom you can co-relate. And that’s exactly triggered all my questions. So, ending here rightnow 🙂


  2. Thanks, Ian. There is definitely some good stuff being done in WPF (I know Readify are involved in a few and they also run Training on it) – but the market is still being dominated by WinForms. I am hoping to get a WPF presentation orgainised at the user group in the next few months – Let’s see how it goes.

  3. Mahesh, I just read your blog and comments about silent install of SQL 2008 Express and it will save me some time. Most importantly though is something that is on every page of your blog… your banner image with you in it… You’ve got so much knowledge that you are sharing that you have put the world off tilt or something. Can you straighten out the horizon in that picture? 🙂
