About Shahzad Bhatti

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:41 pm

Welcome to the my neck of the woods. My name is Shahzad Bhatti and I am living in Seattle area and married with children. For about fifteen years, I have been software developer by day job and a software hacker by night, i.e, after ten hours of day job, I work on personal commercial and open source projects.
I generally distinguish developers into following categories:

So, I consider myself hacker, generalist and tool builder. Like many other
enthusiastics, I chase any new computer technologies and after chasing
OO, Java, Jini, CORBA, and J2EE for many years, I have putting more focus
lately on light-weight J2EE, JXTA, J2ME, aspect-oriented programming, ruby, rails and agile methodologies.

My academic interest includes distributed and parallel programming. I developed
a Java based framework called “JavaNOW” to write parallel applications similar
to Linda and PVM systems. You can find some links to parallel programming
at my bookmarks page, from my page or myspace.

Besides computing, I like to read books on Astronomy, unsolved mysterious,
mathematics, aliens/UFOs and ancient civilizations. In Astronomy, I like
String or Unified theory and hopefully one day it can sort out the
difference between Quantum Mechanics and General theory of relativity.
I love to read ancient
civilizations such as Egyptians, Summerians, Babylonians, etc. There
is a wealth of knowledge that has been lost specially prior to Noah’s
flood. May be we will find a huge library in one of the pyramids one day.
You can checkout some cool sites at
my bookmarks page or from my links section. My link to Ward’s wiki page is and my link to wikipedia is

I also own a small consulting and software development company and spend spare
time writing interesting applications. May be someday I would get to quit my
day job. You can visit
Software Section of my
business website. These products are also available at

Occasionally, I gaze at heavens and stars with my Orion SkyQuest XT8 Dobsonian Reflector

Checkout mosaic or list of a few books that I have been reading lately from Amazon. I generally buy 60-70% of my books from Amazon. Luckily, Amazon has nice feature to download history which makes this list easy to view.
