Dr. Kashif Rasul
I have a PhD. in Mathematics from the Freie Universität Berlin and in parallel to this I have been working as a software developer in the area of location based services and geospatial web application development. Together with Shoaib, we were among the first developers to use Ruby/Rails with the open source geospatial stack at the time, and we have extensive experience in this area. I have also worked on PostGIS, the geospatial extension to PostgreSQL and developed APIs from it to be consumed by mobile applications for geo-fencing and real-time triggers. We have also talked and presented in depth about developing geospatial web applications at conferences like RailsConf, FOSS4G and other local meetups.
