Aslam Rafee leaves DST

Hey! Welcome to my site. You may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

I heard it about 2 weeks ago via the grapevine, but just read it on Tectonic, Aslam Raffee is leaving the Department of Science and Technology (DST) to go work for Sun Microsystems.

He did a great job at promoting open source within the DST and in the South African government, and I’m sure he’ll be sorely missed by many. One of his most notable achievements was the creation of the Minimal InterOpability Standard (MIOS) which set the government standards for working in a cross-platform friendly way.

Good luck to Aslam and I hope we’ll hear much more from him in the future.

    I was hoping someone was standing up against DST (Daylight Savings Time)!
