Alaa's picture

we do

you will notice that we try to do that.

for instance the material used in the firewall sessions is online.

they're working on writing down the content of the networking session.

and the content of the first begginers course in also published pending further edits.

but maybe it will make life easier if the material is published more quickly and is mentioned in a comment at the event's story or on its report.

BTW so far only the php session is missing; Ramez do you intent to post an article covering the things you mentioned?



"u know i once dream that the office of mobinil is from el 7`os :S and the one that answer u and tell u rasidak a girl called ghada"
