Dealing with google sheets is an essential skill not everyone is comfortable with. At Ebtsama, we are all volunteer-based students, so asking volunteers to learn such skill was not really practical although we needed to keep track of distributed tasks and mentor its progress. so we decided to use the most familiar interface to everyone, Messenger, to do that.

If you have taken math for CS class or tried to understand some cryptography algorithm you probably have been just told that a≡b mod m means that a-b is devisable by m (so have I) but I couldn’t understand why is that useful or what the heck is going on??

Almost all crypto algorithms, both symmetric ciphers and asymmetric ciphers, are based on arithmetic within a finite number of elements. Most number sets we are used to, such as the set of natural numbers or the set of real numbers, are infinite. …

we’ve all been through these long boring lines of waiting to check-in for a conference or any event with a large number of audience, We at Ebtsama faced that problem and we tried to solve it as cheap as possible since we’re a charity and we came up with one that’s totally free and very effective and high quilty only by assembling a number of free products.

1- A mobile phone (tested only on android)

2- A laptop only to prepare the system before the event, you won’t use it on-site.
