My name is Dody Gunawinata. You probably know me from the rather popular Practical ASP.NET Core project.
I come from a small remote island North of Indonesia. I am currently based in Cairo, Egypt. This is the seventh country I have worked and lived in.
I am a co-founder of SilverKey Technologies, a software consultancy that works a lot in building software in development sector (IOM, ILO, GIZ, USAID, Egyptian Government, etc). We are an investor and technology partner of Tayary, a pretty cool food/shopping delivery company operating in Alexandria, Egypt. Get it on Android/Apple.
On my spare time I run a small desert travel outfit called Siwawi. We take people exploring the wonderful and historic Siwa Oasis and the Sahara desert.

I wrote the first open source Android app written in Kotlin called Android Rivers. I think it was around version Kotlin .5. You can see in the contributions from JetBrains Kotlin team to the project. I was a really active member of Kotlin community although eventually I lost interest in developing for Android and I couldn't use Kotlin for my day to day work at that time.
4 years ago I started writing samples for ASP.NET Core while I was studying for the framework. It got really popular to my surprise. I still continue to write samples because I found it as an effective learning tool for me and I am glad that many others benefit from them as well.
I am a big admirer of Dave Winer for his work in RSS, Blogging and Podcasting. It's amazing what a single person can contribute to the Internet culture.
