Extremely sad news for the Open Source community in Egypt and the Arab world. Ali Shaath [Ar] just passed away today. Ali was a computer engineer, and was one of the main Free and Open Source Software advocates in Egypt. Throughout his work in the Arab Digital Expression organization, and even before it, he used to collaborate in training on, developing and localizing Open Source Software.
Open source means freedom #OpenEgypt
