About Youghourta

My name is Youghourta Benali, I'm a software engineer from Algeria and a graduate of Ecole nationale Superieure d'Informatique (ESI), one of the most prestigious engineering colleges in Algeria.
I'm a passionate developer, entrepreneur, open source enthusiast and tech blogger. I have experience managing international teams, I speak 4 languages, and I enjoy developing products that scratch my own itches.
I founded previously Walletix which is a platform that allows people who don't trust/like to use credit cards, to pay on or offline without revealing any personal or financial data.
I founded also IT-scoop, a multi-blogs network where we publish high-quality tech content in Arabic. IT-Scoop won the Arabisk Award for best tech website in the MENA region in 2011, and the Algeria Web Award for best tech website in Algeria in 2012.
I've launched some other side projects like deleteitlater.com which allows user to schedule their tweets & facebook status to be deleted later.
