Below are endorsements from former managers and customers:
“Yehia for me was – and still is – the Flash Guru in terms of advanced Action Script programming and XML competency. His passion about Multimedia backed up with his good taste of creating attractive GUI wether by himself or through guiding specialized designers had enabled him to lead all the company’s multimedia projects. In addition to his technical skills, I endorse Yehia also for his highly effective communication skills, project coordination and management capabilities. He did play a pivotal role in communicating with UK based customers in multiple strategic projects we had, where he was a key player in winning customers’ trust by working professionally as one of their own UK based teams. I look forward to work again with Yehia in any future opportunity.”
