What is Moubarmij and the story behind?
Moubarmij is founded by Layal Jebran and Mahmoud Zalt. The main concept is that there's no Arabic content on the Internet especially for Tech people. People in the Arab world struggle with the English language whenever trying to learn something. We've received many emails from Arab people asking for Arabic content for Programmers.
In order to learn programming, you must learn English first. That's a big problem for a huge number of Arabic speakers planning to learn programming today. Those Arabic programmers of any level, suffer to find quality and up-to-date programming tutorials and content in their native language online.
That sounds great! Give us some info! Where can we find you?
