Microsoft Case study to Document the Egyptian Election System. Proud to be part of that work


CompuPharaohs and I had the pride to be part of this case study. This case study shows how world looks to us, but we always down estimate our achievements. I consider this case study; a Hope in the Dark road that shows that Audacity of hope is real not an illusion.

The Arab Spring swept across Northern Africa and the Middle East in 2011, bringing about dramatic changes in governments. In Egypt the government leaders stepped down and were replaced with a temporary military tribunal that restored order and then worked to hold an open election.

The election committee was under national and international pressure to facilitate a system that would support transparent and fair elections.

With only three developers, a limited budget, and about one month to develop the application to scale to 50 million eligible electors, the team tried to utilize some important ALM practices that was of a great Help. The team knew that the choice of the practices, and tools would be critical to the success of the project.

The Great Brian Harry; wrote a one full page blog about this case study.

This is a two pages case study.
