Hussein Nasser is an Esri award-winning senior GIS solution architect at Electricity and Water Authority, Bahrain. He was the first author to write about the ArcGIS for Server technology after its complete revamp in Version 10.1. In 2007, Hussein won the annual ArcGIS for Server Code Challenge conducted at the Esri Developer Summit in Palm Springs, California, for using the AJAX technology with ArcGIS for Server, which was not implemented back then. His eight-year career as a GIS architect at the leading Middle Eastern engineering company Khatib & Alami involved implementing various utility GIS systems based on the Esri technology across the Middle East. After this, Hussein decided to move to a more focused environment at Electricity and Water Authority, Bahrain, his homeland, where he could channel his expertise to develop a robust GIS utility solution and fully integrate it with the e-government project, which would help Bahrain march towards the smart grid. Beyond GIS, Hussein is fascinated by acute research topics. Among the papers he is currently working on are The Human API: A Software Interface to Prevent Cancer, Global Economic Crisis and Natural Disasters Quantum Detector, and the Stock Market and the Moon Phases.
